RULE 48: Don’t Believe You Can Always Win

Ambassador Anthony Kojo Williams, Ex-NFA Chair & Football Biz Expert

There is a whole
list of things and people you can’t beat, so it might be best to be cautious
around them. They include the bookies (and anyone else trying to take money off
you for gambling – casino owners, card sharps, race courses, online gambling
websites etc.), the tax authorities, speed cameras, the government, your
mother, planning authorities, the police, your kids and death.

Dan Brown,
author of The Da Vinci Code,
was sued by the authors of another book, Holy Blood, Holy Grail, as they believed he had plagiarized
their work. They lost. They lost big time. They lost somewhere, in the region
of £1.75 million including costs.
They probably
believed quite sincerely in the merits of their case, but did anybody tell them
they were unlikely to win? It’d be fascinating to know whether anybody advised
them not to proceed as they would probably lose… 

“Dan Brown, author of The Da Vinci Code, was sued by the authors of another

as they believed he had plagiarized their work. They lost. They lost big
time”.

The reason to be
very cautious in your dealings with bookies, barristers, accountants and such
like is that they have knowledge you don’t. They are holders of secrets that
can enable them (if they so choose) to make money out of you purely because of
your ignorance. And don’t go getting all moralistic on me and trying to change
the system. These are facts of life. Live with them. Work them.
You won’t get rid of them. You can’t beat the
bookies – or the odds – so don’t go trying or attempting to get rid of them on
the grounds that they are making money out of the poor, innocent and gullible
public. Trouble is, the poor, innocent, gullible publics walk in there with
their wallets open crying, ‘Help yourself.’ And then complain they are broke,
no one gives them a chance, life isn’t fair, no one likes me, it’s not my
fault, there ought to be a law against it, etc. Remember that there are sharks
out there. So don’t bleed.
