Regarding Tom Cruise as someone to model, i.e. preparation...the other side of the coin is that he is willing to take action, speak his mind, take a stand...and he has often rocked the boat in doing so.

For all the world to see, he's made huge "mistakes..." and then learned from them. He's been willing to say "I'm sorry, I made a huge mistake."

So between his willingness to prepare and his willingness to also operate from "ready, fire, aim!" he has reached great heights in his profession.

Preparation plus a willingness to put yourself out there and blow it from time to time. That gives us a glimpse of how Tom has built his empire.
