The little girl who stood at the front of the church in between the service took over the attention of everyone who came to the church the previous day. She was cute enough that she was able to grab the attention of the entire crowd.
Fame is the perfume to heroic deeds, says Socrates.
Well, is there a problem with you? Are you satisfied with your life? What is the one thing that everybody wishes to attain and when received will be wholly satisfied in life? Well, to light a flare in other’s life will be a common goal listed by many. There won’t be anyone who would say no to “fame or prestige”.
Imagine a big crowd, networking in a conference hall without minding anything that is around them, and the moment you enter you find pin-drop silence in the conference hall and everyone looking at you. They all rise in respect while you walk in. This is something that everyone wishes, right!? I mean, think about how good it feels when you receive the attention. Everyone will get this opportunity in their life, while they are small kids. But only people who work hard and who have gone through different hardships can experience it while they are grown up.
Nowadays, fame is something that is wished for and people are ready to gain it even by doing wrong deeds. But, fame can be a hot air balloon if you attain it through wrong deeds. Think about the fame you gain by helping someone or by doing something to humanity, it might just take you a day to help someone for something from danger but the fame you receive in people’s heart will definitely be for a lifetime.
People today connects fame with money without knowing that they both are two different clouds passing in the sky called life. The clouds, when hit together, will produce a great sound which would act as a teaser to the situation where it can bring in great deluge causing destruction. So, before going behind fame or money, we should know the difference between both and if it comes together it can bring destruction.
Fame is indeed something good if we attain it for good deeds and it becomes the worst when you attain it and forget about the fact that those who live along with you are also human beings.
Tame fame to fame name!
