A lot of people in today’s world dream of being famous and some are doing every possible thing to grab peoples’ attention and make themselves go viral to appear all over the media.
Yet, fame is not really as great as you really think it is!
I personally would NEVER ever want fame in my life, and I have many reasons why, and I will be sharing with you here below.
You know, we see it all the time the majority amount of people out there focusing really hard on getting as much attention as they can to gain massive popularity/fame and become an influencer/celebrity, especially all over social media.
Yes, bodybuilders, athletes, Instagram “models”, etc are using their bodies for pure fame to have millions of followers/fans increasing their own ego, but they probably have no idea about the cons/disadvantages of fame!
Sure, it could be to actually inspire others and so, but you will run into many negativity all over the place…So my question would be, is it really worth taking this route?
Now don’t get me wrong because if you’re a singer, actor, or have a professional job that would only succeed due to showing it to the masses, then I completely understand that you may need fame in order to be successful.
Yet, I still wouldn’t want fame because I believe our own privacy is everything in this world! If I have no privacy, I’m not living free and that means, there is no freedom in many cases.
Read on and find out everything you would like to know!
What Is FAME?
Fame is basically the “state of being known or talked about by many people, especially on account of notable achievements”, as according to Dictionary.
It is you being recognized by as many people as possible when you do something that grabs another person’s attention.
However, a lot of people are damaging their own health just to gain fame… A lot of people are wasting their energy, their time, their money, effort, and basically looking for every possible way so that they can be as popular/famous as they could!
Fame and fortune are nothing if you’re not happy or healthy. – Erika Slezak
Some people especially singers like rappers/hip-hop, celebrities, and so have actually claimed to have “sold their own SOUL” just for fame to get massive power and fortune…
Now I find that ridiculous because once you give it away, you can’t get it back!
In fact, people have built their own careers based on fame, such as Kim Kardashian where her sex tape went viral and she got famous for it!
How easy was that?!
People think that only fame can give your life a meaning/purpose, and that’s false.
In fact, some people think that to be very successful or very wealthy, you need fame, and that’s a complete myth.
It’s definitely not true!
There are billionaires and very successful people out there that you never ever heard of, and guess what, they are probably living their lives way better than some famous people.
Now that’s a fact, and I’ll tell you why if you keep reading!
You can’t separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom. – Malcom X
The PROS of FAME:
Sure, the pros/advantages of fame may be a lot, which could be way more than the cons/disadvantages depending on how you look at it!
And some of the advantages/benefits that people believe that is good to gain as much fame out there is to have more attention from people to make it seem like you’re “worth a lot” and of course, earn a lot of money and power.
Yes, it makes it much easier to have more money than ever because since many people know about you, you can promote yourself with a product in exchange for a massive amount of money.
We see it all the time where famous celebrities are living in big mansions, driving supercars, traveling to many places, being recognized by other famous people and of course, having all the luxury and all that!
Wealth is the ability to fully experience life. – Unknown
Sure, you will be known all over the country, if not recognized internationally meaning there is a spotlight on you all the time that can be worldwide where a large number of fans are supporting you…
Of course, being very well recognized all over the media, more opportunities come along and you also get special treatments like front rows in special events, special entry to a nightclub/parties, a special table at a restaurant, fancy gifts, etc.
I mean people will treat you as if you’re really “special” to the world or if you’re different from the rest of us.
Yet, not to mention, fame gives you a massive ego boost, which the more fame you gain, the more you would want! It sure is very addictive as well!
Therefore, popularity and being famous will sure give you eternal fame and leave you with a popular legacy but if you were to ask me, would I ever want to be famous and the answer will always be a big NO!
Just keep reading!
The CONS of FAME:
That’s right, you read that correctly… Famous people have no privacy at all!
You can’t go anywhere without a team of security following you because you would have many people (Paparazzi) coming up to you out of nowhere for pictures and autographs.
That means even if it’s right around the cornerstone, you have no privacy at all. People know everything about you and you aren’t free which also means no freedom to be out there in the streets doing what you want.
But that’s the very least thing…
What about stalkers, jealous people, and haters following you around the world and people making up false information about you which could have a serious negative impact on your whole image, your life, your family, and your future.
There are numerous amount of famous people that are actually living in depressed, traumatic states, and basically stay inside their houses all the time or even hide for several years in a different country because of fame.
Mental breakdown is a serious issue!
Some of them have committed suicide and I’m sure it has something to do with their own privacy or the fact that they’re no longer as famous as they were or would like to be from my point of view.
Not to mention, when you’re famous, you have many people that are looking for ways to take money from you like falsely accusing you of something you never did, and all of that! We see it all the time…
Yes, by being famous, you sure will have many so-called “friends” but they are not real friends. You just don’t know who to trust!
Famous people have to look out for themselves way more than the average person out there. Yes, there are obsessive people that could do physical harm to you or threaten you, your life, and your family, etc.
What about your fans and people out there judging you all the time!?
I mean, you really can’t make a mistake at all, or else you will have millions of people judging you, trying to ruin your status, image, or reputation, and I believe it’s very hard to actually have or maintain a clean image of yourself when you’re famous because nobody is perfect.
Everyone makes mistakes!
Not to mention, as I said above, once you’re famous or have a lot of fame under your name or image, you can’t go back as it is not the same as before!
You could actually become poor all over again, hide for the rest of your life or die, but people will still remember you and most likely be after you all the time. They’ll know who you are no matter how many years have gone by!
You basically can’t do things as an average person would. It’s true that fame can ruin your life forever where not a lot of people can deal with fame’s pressure!
As we all have seen over and over again, many famous people have committed suicide because fame messed up their lives…
You have to be a very strong individual because there are some serious cold-hearted and bad people out there willing to do anything to ruin you, your life and if you’re not fully prepared, you can lose yourself very badly!
RESULTS OF FAME: NO PRIVACY = NO FREEDOM!
Now you know why I would never ever want fame under my name or image, neither I ever look forward to becoming famous whatsoever!
Privacy to me is everything in this world! Lack of privacy is no good at all… Having full privacy for me is FREEDOM! Privacy to me is POWER.
In fact, one of my favorite quotes states that;
What people don’t know, they can’t ruin.
Moreover, if you’re famous, you can’t be at any beach like a common person would or at a bar without people spying on you 24/7, taking photos of you, and putting you on blast all over the media.
If not having fans coming up to you for an autograph and you basically can’t be free from the world, which makes it no privacy = no freedom to me.
For a fact, the founder/owner of FACEBOOK, Mark Zuckerberg spent $30 million dollars on buying all the houses surrounding his own house so he can have more privacy with his family.
Privacy is the basic human right, which people with fame don’t have privacy at all.
I personally love to go out, drive around, have fun, and naturally meet new people that have no idea who I am or ever heard of me, and I like doing whatever I want without having a large number of people watching me, stalking me, and judging me even If I were to do only good things!
I don’t exist to impress the world. I exist to live my life in a way that will make me happy. – Unknown
Yes, believe it or not, you could do 100% positive good things for the world, and you will always be judged no matter what you do, how you look, or whatever! Plus there will always be negative people out there trying to ruin you to make themselves feel better!
I mean, would you really want that for yourself?
HECK NO, not me!
When you build in silence, people don’t know what to attack.
I don’t need approval from people! I live my life on my own terms, I do what I want without anybody knowing anything about my life, my business, or regardless of whatever unless I show it or tell them!
That means, I can live wherever I want, I can go wherever I want, and basically do whatever I want without massive people looking out for me, trying to judge me, throwing negativity vibes toward me, and all of that!
I don’t need people’s opinions on what I do or what to do! I live in my own little world, and I am completely very happy about how I live my life, and therefore, I AM FREE with full of privacy!
Keep your personal life private! Reality is not everyone is going to be happy for you. Most of the “Nice” comments you get are just fake. You will only attract the evil eye on you and your family. You are attracting jealous people in your life. You don’t know who is saving your pictures and checking your updates. You really need to stop this because it may ruin your life, family, marriage, and career. Social media is the devil’s eyes, ears, and mouth, don’t fall into the devil’s trap. Let your private life remain private. – My favorite private quote!
So fame is not good for me. I don’t want it, the disadvantages have a much greater impact than the advantages in my own opinion.
So once again, the moment you become famous, that’s it, you can’t get the privacy you had back, plus you gotta look out for yourself all the time since fame never dies! No matter how many years go by, people will still remember you!
Just so you know, your follower is not always your fan…and that’s a fact!
Therefore, being famous is NOT for everyone and if you can deal with all the pressure from worldwide fans and the negativity/haters that comes along, sure if that’s what you want, I don’t judge you because I personally just can’t handle too much negativity in my life.
Yet, for most people, the lack of privacy is not a big deal as we all can see all over the media since people are doing every possible thing to make themselves famous… Yet, they probably have no idea what would happen after they gain all the fame they want.
NOW, you don’t need FAME AT ALL to be successful or very wealthy!
Success comes in a lot of ways, but it doesn’t come with money and it doesn’t come with fame. It comes from having a meaning in your life, doing what you love and being passionate about what you do. That’s having a life of success. When you have the ability to do what you love, love what you do and have the ability to impact people. That’s having a life of success. That’s what having a life of meaning is. ― Tim Tebow
There many billionaires out there that have no social media accounts whatsoever and that means, the outside world doesn’t know who they are unless they allow it, neither does it involve their families and that means they are in peace forever.
Oh, it’s just like me, I never allowed society to know anything that involves my life because I want completely full privacy. I am the CEO of my life, and so are you to yours!
Give me the fortune, you can keep the fame.
The only time I grab people’s attention is when I’m wearing a pheromone cologne therefore, women are highly attractive to me and men are looking out for me.
Yes, I use the attraction-boosting ones to go out at night, social ones in the day time and some while I’m with a hot beautiful chick by myself, which does boost up my own confidence levels, along with making me a magnet to attract hot sexy women into my life since I am currently single!
And it sure will work very effectively if you still want fame and will do any possible thing to grab people’s attention, then you sure should grab yourself a pheromone cologne or more to help you out big time here!
