Being a celebrity is not very common but being popular is not rare. In any case, you are in the center of attention. There are some things you should consider about who you are and who you want to be. You may be recognized at an international level but you can also be known only in your own country. This article may refer to celebrities but it mostly has to do with anyone who has the luck to enjoy acceptance and fame from the rest of the group. The more people know you, the more famous you are but the concepts you should follow remain the same.
Let’s see what celebrities should do and who we expect them to be.
- Be a good role model
Whether you like it or not, being a celebrity will make people talk a lot about you. Your choices will be discussed and it is most likely that younger ages will try to imitate you. In other words, you will become a role model in any case, so you’d better be a good one. Consider what you would like your children to learn and what you would like them to do. Being popular adds responsibility to you and if you want to live a happy life while being a star you will have to feel comfortable with what you pass on to other people.
- Chose your work carefully
Once you become successful enough to become recognized by most people in society you have the luxury to make choices that may be more strict. You can focus on what you want to do with your ”persona.” You may want to add a political comment to your work or something that comes as a suggestion to the rest of the society. You may even refuse to be involved in projects that you are not 100% on board with. For example, think of an actor you like and consider whether you liked him participating in a certain movie or not.
- Don’t get overexposed to media
Being famous may be an alife-dream for many people but don’t you ever think this doesn’t come with a price. The media sees you as a product and every news about your personal life is translated into money for them. It is important to protect your personal life and the life of those you love because don’t forget that your beloved ones will also be discussed by the press. Besides, you don’t know how this may end up in a few years. It is better to promote your work by using the press rather than to use your personality to promote your work.
- Do charities
Most of the time, celebrities are wealthy. Offering a charity for a good cause will not only make you feel better but will also truly relieve people who suffer from financial issues. At the same time, it makes you look good to others plus you may raise awareness over a matter that people were not interested in. Let’s not forget that in some cases charities may reduce the amount of money you have to spend on taxes a great deal. In any case, you have nothing to lose and it is a certain way your money will be spent on something crucial.
- Don’t become arrogant
Remember Jennifer Lopez singing ”Don’t be fooled by the rocks that I got. I’m still, I’m still Jenny from the block.” Well, this is what we suggest here. Becoming a star is not a situation many people can handle. Some famous personalities have been destroyed by either drug use or generally losing completely their sense of reality. Obtaining an attitude like that will only lead you to lose the true friends you had when you were not recognized already. Fake friends that only care about your money will take their place and in case anything goes wrong in your life they will turn their backs on you. Stay real, stay who you are and ”don’t be fooled by your own rocks.”
- Contribute to your profession
Becoming known to the public means you are probably successful in what you decided to do. This means you are most likely to have suggestions over how things should be done in a certain area. If you are on top and there is a reason for that don’t hesitate to pass your wisdom to others and share your ideas based on your experience. A perfect example is an idea of opening a teaching school of what you do. To begin with, your name on the firm will help you have access to a big pool of customers. In the meanwhile, you will give something back to society. Here we are not talking about a business strategy, like when a singer promotes a perfume with their name on it. Nope! In this case, we talk about something different, like building up your own academy.
