What is fame really?
Depends on who you talk to. If I ask my sister (whose not even 16), she would imagine dressed up pretty (lil) dresses..heading to the clubs where everyone knows (and adores her of course) her name. Well lil sis…don’t grow up too quick :)
“Adakah anda giler glamor?”
Thats a question I get asked a lot lately. Am I? No! Sure its nice to be known and recognized but I’d rather it be for something I accomplished and am given credibility for. But I definitely am not complaining…trust me the perks ain’t bad.
Trust me, fame is cheap. Nowadays any joe-schmo or mak minah can be a model, actress etc. But lets keep it real people, just because you graced a cover of a magazine doesn’t make you a super star. I not big on those “macam bagus” people.
Humility is important.
For me fame is just a kesan sampingan (side effect) of being good at what you do. Its not your goal to be famous but it just so happens. Think of the people like Tiger Woods, Roger Federer, Bill Clinton, Oprah, Dr M etc these are extremely famous people but, for sure, they are not giler glamour. They are passionate about their ambitions, dreams and goals! People take notice but it doesn’t change who they are as individuals, their character remains.
Adakah glamor akan influence diri anda?
Well for those giler glamor, most probably as they can now finally attune their lifestyle. For others that are comfortable with who they are, famous or not, it doesn’t change them a single bit.
I have great respect for people that achieve so called fame or success but retain their humility and respect for others. End of the day, people are people. We all have our imperfections.
Personally, I dont fancy fame. Glamor tu tak ke mana ;)
