Some folk long for fame. Others want anything but that. Being in the public eye has its pros and cons.
Cons: getting mocked, stalked and gawked at.
Pros: wealth, fame and influence.
Plus one delightful (and often overlooked) advantage. This might be the best reason to be a celebrity. I’d take this over being scrutinised on social media 24/7, that’s for sure.
The best part?
You don’t need to be famous to have this, although it certainly helps.
You can claim this for yourself, no matter who you are, with just a little imagination. Oh, and you’ll need someone’s help with it. But trust me, it couldn’t be much easier.
It’s as simple as this:
Find someone you trust. They’ll need good intentions towards you, it’s true. But that’s not enough. A puppy thinks quite highly of you – as nice as that is, you’ll need something more.
You’ll need someone whose opinions and expertise you respect.
Think of it this way – let’s say you had a sudden problem, like you lost your job. Who in your life would you turn to for advice? That person, I hope, wants nothing but good things for you, and is smart enough to make excellent suggestions.
That’s the sort of person you’ll need.
Need for what, you ask?
The hidden-yet-public benefit to being a celebrity:
Now, okay, most celebrity interviews aren’t great. They’re either hostile, in which case no one gets anything out of it. Or they’re light-hearted, which at least make people smile.
Then there are those rare interviews.
They tend to be longer, with a skilled host.
The ones that really get beneath the surface and explore who the person really is.
Your interview can be like this. It’s why you want someone you can trust, because it takes care and skill to open you up like this.
The interview might be purely technical, like how you do something you’re good at.
Or it can explore your personality, your desires, your fears.
Ideally, it does both.
This isn’t therapy, because you’re not trying to do anything. You’re both curious about you. Together, you’re exploring what is and following what comes up.
If this sounds weird or like it wouldn’t do anything, try it. It’s strangely powerful – more emotional, intense and useful than you might imagine.
Be prepared for anything that arises, be open to what comes up and go with it.
So that’s one way to enhance your life.
But if self-improvement really interests you, what would you do with more techniques than you can use?
Like, say, 60 of them?
