Good morning everyone, today I decided to put down an article about handling fame and fortune when it arises, first of all what is fame, fame is an unmerited opportunity given by God to some chosen set of people which makes them known by the universe for the certain things they do and knows how to do better in their various field of work.
It may range from good speech, boldness, education wise, behaviour and so on.
Now what is fortune, fortune are the goodies that comes along with being famous and known for in what you know how to do best, fortune in other word can mean wealth, successful life, good living and so on, name it.
Below are the 5 ways I’m noting down today on how to handle fame and fortune because to those that have it, I must tell you that some never expected it or saw it coming, it is determined by God the creator of the universe to introduce the next one to the whole wide world.
When the fame and fortune arises, some start to misbehave and act like they are God, doing wrong things that are not called for and later make them lose the value and respect they earlier gained from the universe.
The 5 guides below can see you through in the journey of life when things start to get rosy for you and in your day to day living, this will help you start well and end well with good integrity. It might not be easy but if tried out will see you through the trials and common issues famous people go through each and every day of their life.
1. Never respond to your angry fans and critics in a harsh manner:
The first thing to watch out for in a famous and fortunate lifestyle are the critics and pissed off fans, you can’t escape that and the truth is if you don’t have critics, you can’t get the required strength to keep you going.
Critics should only make you stronger and determined, they will talk about your bad sides, flaws, mistakes, imperfection but that shouldn’t get you angry and make you talk back in a bad way, you should be moderate and cautious in your replies to them.
Your harsh replies will only make them point out only the bad things you say to them and not the good ones, and one bitter truth is that they made you who you are indirectly if you understand.
2. Always direct all the praises showered on you back to God.
Most of your fans and lovers will praise and hail you in your front for the great things you do but I must tell you that not all really wish you well right from inside, some wanted to shut you down with the sweet and flattering words from their mouth.
They will even wish you more success with their mouth but deep inside they meant bad for you, so don’t feel too big by their sweet and flattering words but instead give all the glory back to the creator that made it all possible and that will help you get more and more from the real giver.
3. Stay humble and say no to pride:
No matter how famous and fortunate you get, some set of people have had more of it than you in the past and are now gone, fame and fortune is all about its rise and fall.
Most famous and fortunate people of the past has risen and fallen because of the bad act called “Pride”.
It doesn’t deduct 1 Naira from your worth or reduce your level of importance in life when you stay humble but gives you the more respect you need to see you through.
Also note that advising you to stay humble doesn’t mean you should be of Low Self Esteem and make people treat you the way they like, loyalty is not slavery. There is a very clear difference between humility and having low self esteem.
4. Start a foundation that donates and give out to the less priviledge:
Donating and giving out to those that lack and not up to standard in the society is very good and helps you a lot, start a foundation or charity home in your name, it’s not a bad idea and always remember that blessed is the hand that gives than the one that takes.
If the almighty gave you the excess of fame and fortune you prayed or worked for, he wants you to also give out to others from it and be a source of blessing to others as well, don’t be selfish maybe because of what you went through before the right time comes. Through giving, more blessings and open doors is guaranteed, you will keep flourishing and basking more in the success pool.
5. Never forget God your creator both when things are going good or bad:
There is a truth saying that goes “Nothing happens in this world without God’s fore knowledge of it” and not just a leaf will drop from a tree without God knowing about it.
Everything that happens in this life is already known and planned by your God. He already knew you and what you are going to become even before you are conceived through your mother.
Everything is made possible by God only, your famous life, fortune, riches and all the good things you have is given and approved by Him only and that is one good reason why you should always pray. Be thankful to him always because when things are good, it’s God, when the going gets wrong, it’s still God.
Don’t forget your God when your star comes out shining and you begin to prosper, fame is just an illusion that will fade away with time but your creator and your good deeds with stay forever.
Give adequate praises to Him everyday, find some good time from your tight schedule to worship and pray to your God every day and through that, He will never fail you or let you down.
