Yes, it's an odd title for today's show, but I think I can tie all three of these news stories together into podcasting magic!
You have probably heard by now (because nobody in the media can stop talking about it) that Bill Cosby has been found guilty on three different counts of sexual assault.
On the drive into the studio today I was thinking back to the 1980's. If someone from the future was standing in front of you in 1988, during the hight of The Cosby Show, and told you, "In 2018, at the age of 80, Cosby will be convicted of drugging and sexually assaulting a woman" I think every one of us would say BS!
Cosby has gone from being the poster child for what a father and family could look like in the black community to a liar and rapist. That's nuts!
I talk a lot about success. How much work it takes to get to the top of the game in any industry and how the best never rest on their past accomplishments.
Regardless of what you think of Tom Cruise the man doesn't take a break. He risks it all (literally) every day to be the best in his field. You gotta respect that. It's a lesson we can all benefit from, and I wanted to take time to share it with you today.
The world is full of people who will make you promises they can't keep. What I hope you take away from today's show is that YOU alone are responsible for your future. Succeed or fail the outcome is on you. Be cautious of anyone who promises you a deal that seems too good to be true.
