Over the years we have been enamored by the famous. Inspired by their choices that radiate power, smitten by their swagger that suggests a prowess. Ever wondered about the effects the allure of wealth, preferential treatment, and public adoration does to the famous? Or how the famous stuck in the perpetual need to keep their fame machine churning actually live, or end up being?
We are goaded by a culture that glorifies celebrity and we become fixated with it as a goal. I am by no means a thought leader to comment on success literature and its fine distinction on fame or infamy. I am an intrigued commoner that has a question – “Is fame really worth it”? Well, I am certain of one thing though – with fame subtlety is in short supply.
Most often than not, with fame comes money. But the lure of wealth is not the only thing that makes the path to fame sought worthy. The constant attention and glamor that illuminates the journey is intoxicating in itself. The famous are watched, heard and followed. With this comes the nagging urge to do and achieve more. That’s predictable wisdom.
Fame is like a double-sided coin. The world gets to see the sparkling alluring side on display, but just try flipping it once. You get to see the other side, the dark side!
