Eminem’s Rise To Fame

This video was actually a little discouraging to me. I had a comfortable childhood, my parents are still married to each other (almost 45 years now) and I was fairly well adjusted in high school.

I’m also a college graduate and gainfully employed.

Looks like I’m doomed to a life of mediocrity.

Or maybe not.

I have my own personal obstacles (laziness, fear of change, obesity to name a few) to overcome.

Actually, far from discouraging, I like how Eminem divides himself between his public on stage persona and his private in home persona. To me, that was the most revealing and encouraging part of the interview.

Also, Eminem almost cracked a smile a couple of times.

I still want a TV show, and I actually have something like that with my weekly football game coverage. I’m also going to be interviewed on a local movie show tomorrow and in an aviation podcast with a worldwide audience on Sunday. Slowly but surely, I’m overcoming my own obstacles and working towards what I want.

Overnight success takes years to create.
