Famous Means Mean

It is impossible to be at the top of your game as an educator, movie star, author or car mechanic or whatever without being mean.

Truly famous people who are known the world over by their name and image have fought tough and tacky to get to that pinnacle and they will not give up their fame for anything — and that inevitably means they have to be mean to others in order to stay on top.

This mean phenomenon must be expected — because there is always someone out there trying to take your game and replace your fame — and that is the major pitfall of becoming well-known:  In order to maintain your position of strength and power you must never be kind or understanding; you must always and forever be ruthless and mean.
