I was thinking about those ‘celebrities’ I mentioned in another post.
They have gone on to become household names in the film industry. Along with others.
Barely 2 or 3 of them, however, can really act well. All have large crowds of acolytes who worship their every antic, regardless of merit or quality. They have TRUE FANS.
I thought back to the actors and celebrities of yesteryear.
Even they spanned a similar spectrum. Some were very talented. Some were very popular. In only few exceptions were the two in proportion (anyone else here a fan of Rajnikanth?!)
Even off-stage, the impact these celebrities make on the wider universe runs the gamut.
Some are generous, others stingy. Some are noble; others petty. Some become inspirational icons of a generaton; others are scary role models for our youth.
But here’s the rub…
None of them became this way AFTER they grew famous.
They already were. It just got bigger.
In your impassioned quest for success, remember this.
The time to become your best ‘YOU’ is right now… not afterwards.
