Hollywood’s Mentor

Habits spread like a virus throughout your social networks, according to a study conducted by Nicolas Christakis, Yale University.

Once forged, habits tend to stick with you for most of your life, according to another study conducted by Dr. Pressman, Brown University.

One of the most important sources of habits are your parents. 

The second most important source of habits are mentors. Mentors share their habits with their mentees. Mentees, thus, adopt the habits of their mentor and those habits stick with them for most of their adult lives.

If you don’t believe me, just look at the latest headlines on this Harvey Weinstein Hollywood mess. Women are now coming out of the woodwork to share their stories of sexual abuse, not only at the hands of Harvey Weinstein, but also at the hands of other famous male Hollywood actors who suckled at the tit of Weinstein.

Harvey Weinstein was a major power broker in Hollywood, as head of Miramax Films. Anyone in a position of power becomes a mentor, good or bad.

There is no doubt in my mind that Weinstein mentored hundreds, if not thousands, of subordinates over his thirty years.

This means there may be thousands of men in Hollywood who, thanks to Weinstein, have forged the bad habit of sexually abusing women.

Because habits stick with you for most of your adult life, this means we are only seeing the tip of the iceberg in Hollywood.

Harvey Weinstein may be gone for good, but there are literally thousands of Harvey Weinstein mentees out there in Hollywood, just waiting for your young daughter to walk through their door for their “audition”.

Let that sink in for a moment.
