“In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.” – Bill Cosby
Sometimes all you need is a pick-me-up, and this week’s team bonding quote comes from one of the greatest comedians of all time: Bill Cosby. Although this quote is not one of his funniest, it is inspirational and pays tribute to the fact that Bill Cosby was an educated, driven man.
When people think of Bill Cosby, most think about his hilarious stand-up comedian routines or his creation of The Bill Cosby Show, but he made an even bigger difference in the world.
Bill Cosby received a doctorate in education by creating the educational cartoon comedy series Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids, about a group of young friend growing up in Philadelphia. In every episode the gang would learn a lesson about anything from vandalism and racism to child abuse and gun violence. Cosby wanted to make a difference in the world, and he thought that by inspiring and educating the youth he would be able to accomplish his goal.
We all start somewhere.
Cosby got his start at various clubs around the San Francisco area before landing a starring role in the action show I Spy. He developed his passion for comedy and entertainment while in the armed forces by joking with fellow enlistees in the service.
In college, Cosby was a bartender and had the ability to make people laugh in order to earn money for tips. It was then where he started to realize his talent and began to follow his dreams. He decided to pursue comedy and travel the country. His desire to succeed was fearless, and he had the drive to achieve greatness.
You cannot be afraid to fail.
Comedy is an industry that makes a person very vulnerable, but that is the reason it is respected so much. Comedians are not afraid to fail and believe that success is their only option.

Virtual Reality Now Available As A High Tech, High Touch Team Building Event Let’s travel in time back to the ’90s when Virtual Reality now known as VR concept was just a thought? There were some prototypes, but unfortunately, they were far from becoming a reality. The only VR devices that were on the market by that time were heavy, huge machines that weren’t portable at all.
I can get inspiration from anywhere but I never thought it would be from my neighborhood fast food place. Truth is, it’s not just my neighborhood restaurant, McDonald’s is one of the most successful worldwide brands and they just introduced a similar strategy to my company. Maybe they were inspired by us?
At TeamBonding we love having the chance to help our clients give back and helping their communities. It’s even better when we can help companies focus on their corporate social responsibilities and actually have an impact instead of creating vague initiatives. Part of the fun for us is coming up with new ideas and creating new programs to continue giving back. We have a variety of programs from our Charity Bike Build and Team Teddy Rescue Bear programs, Operation Military Care to provide care packages to our troops, all the way to Paws for a Cause where you make dog beds, pull toys, or cat scratchers for animals in shelters – among so many other charitable program options!
Mention team building and you’ll see a lot of eye rolls. Mention that you’ve planned a team building event and the room will fill with groans. To a lot of people, team building feels like a corporate buzzword synonymous with forced participation, uncomfortable interaction and just a means to an end. Some think of it as purely a waste of time, taking them away from work they could be doing.
