Success is a ladder that cannot be climbed with your hands in your pockets

1. What is your greatest career ambition?
2. Would you like to be famous?
3. What are the advantages and disadvantages of being famous?
4. How can a person achieve fame?

1. What is your greatest career ambition?

Making prophecies won’t lead you to anything. Only by working to the best your abilities will you come by anything of value. There is no use in declaring your ambitions unless you are persistent enough to work hard to reach heights of your dreams’. I want to specialize in foreign languages and being a descent specialist is what I aimed at. I don’t want to be in charge of anyone and any rank of authority is not my goal.

2. Would you like to be famous?

Being famous is what many people dream of, though it’s not my ambition. One of my favourite proverbs goes as follows «it is not all gold that glitters”. Everything has it’s pros and cons. Being in the center of attention may flatter you initially but sooner or later it starts irritating you due to constant intrusions into your private life and made up stories to satisfy public’s thirst for gossips and scandals. There are many things which may put off you from gaining popularity of any kind. I mean an endless rush to live up to the image of a famous person. I want to enjoy my way of life so my answer to the question is negative.

3. What are the advantages and disadvantages of being famous?

As it has been stated before fame is not only enjoyment but a burden itself. Famous people attract other people’s attention and it’s not always positive. Some people admire you whereas others are in a nasty habit of criticizing you. They subconsciously believe that by running you down they prove their significance. As for them you are faulty by design as you dared to stand out of a crowd. I have no intention to step in this stupid battle.

4. How can a person achieve fame?

It’s out of the question that one can achieve success by hard work only. Becoming famous is another story. You are not expected to do something useful to become famous. The main thing is to do something which comes as a shock to the public. I mean dressing up in a strange way or making odd comments on current affairs. Popping up is what leads to popularity and it doesn’t matter whether you become famous or infamous as both words are derived from the same core word
