Be better than those who lie to their own souls! 😉 Welcome back friends from the US, Canada, Brazil, and Romania 😉
It’s so interesting to have these thin threads coming up to your mind from time to time, for no obvious reasons. Notions that you want to investigate, explore, or talk about, but you feel like you need to dig deeper to reach to some profound materials before daring to talk about it.
One of these topics is seeking fame. Many writers wrote about this kind of thoughts stating that your dream was either to be famous or to be filthy rich. Psychologists, on the other hand, said that: “It’s your era’s latest illness.”

When you are under the spell of seeking fame, you want to make history and to have your name mentioned in history books. It doesn’t matter if you are a basketball player, a clown, or a president, you want to come up with something that achieve your dream, without thinking of the disadvantages. The worst one that can kill you is that your name is no longer be on the headlines, or would not be there at all. 😛
In a world that sees people as Somebodies and Nobodies, indignities abound. The primary source of man-made indignity is rankism. By analogy with racism and sexism, rankism is defined as what somebodies do to nobodies
In spite of all this, you may get lucky, be at a certain place at a certain time, and Voilà! You become famous, without any efforts on your part!
