Most of us wanted to rise in our own fame and prominence. We want the world to recognize our efforts and importance in our field of endeavors. However, with the sudden rise of fame and popularity comes to the pressure in maintaining it. How do we get the most out of fame?
Here are the top 5 tips from our celebrities you should remember about fame and how to get the most and best out of it.
1. Being Popular Will Not Last
No matter how much people love you today, always keep in mind that it won’t last. Your popularity is finite. You’re bound to lose the fame that you’ve worked hard and someone better than you will take over your position soon. So before that happens, make the most out of it. Take projects that interests and challenge you. Work hard and give your best in every opportunity given to you.
Aside from that, engage in charity works or volunteer groups you wished to support. There’s nothing more gratifying and fulfilling than to help other people and make the world a better place after you’re done achieving all your ambitions in life.
2. Watch Your Health
While being famous is an exciting chapter in our life, it can also be overwhelming. Overwhelming due to the fact that many projects will come pouring our way. While we said earlier that make the best out of your fame, we didn’t mean you need to put your health at risk. Most of us would take our health for granted because we need to deal with so many projects and gigs.
But you should not do that. After all, health is wealth. How will you be able to fulfill these projects if you’re always sick? Always invest with your health first. Have a healthy eating diet. Exercise for at least 30 minutes every day. Most of all, don’t indulge yourself with drug and substance abuse. Most celebrities tend to think they’re invincible enough to do what they want because they’re already popular. But it turned out it’s not the case. If anything, getting involved in these controversies ruin their fame.
3. Select Your Friends Wisely
With the rise of your popularity comes with the rise of many friends. And some of them, are, shall we say, the bad and fake ones. When you’re popular, anyone would want to come with you. Some of them are an opportunist and will use the fame you work so hard to climb their own ladder. Worst, they will leave you behind once you’re no longer popular.
And certainly, you wouldn’t want to associate yourself with that kind of friends. So choose your circles wisely. Choose those friends who will love, accept, and support you for who you are. Choose those who are genuine in making connections with you. Who will be there with you to support you in every step of the way, for the better or for the worst?
4. Learn from others’ mistakes
Everyone makes mistakes. Especially those celebrities who let their fame get the best out of them. So if you’re not sure on how to handle your fame, learn from the veterans. Do these veterans got involve in drugs, substance abuse, or some horrendous disease that made them lose their fame? If so, try to avoid them. Learn from their mistake to make sure you won’t be committing it.
5. Remember Your Values. Be Humble
Just because you’re famous, doesn’t mean you’re on top of the world. You are still human, bound by the laws and rules of the society. As much as possible, follow the laws, be kind, compassionate, and not arrogant. Don’t let your moral values get lost over popularity. Because at the end of the day, people will love and remember you because of your heart, not because of your fame. Besides, who would want to mingle themselves with a famous celebrity who’s arrogant and so full of himself? No one. So before you make that mistake, think again!
Handling fame and popularity are always difficult, especially since we have no absolute control over them. But with the right values, you’ll be able to smooth things out and enjoy your fame while it lasts.
