All great celebrities are known for something – their personality, what they say, how they live their lives, etc. But not all people who have a lot of followers on social media are considered famous, nor do they hold an important position in society.
Some people gain popularity by being very entertaining or having interesting stories to share, but none of them really matter much unless they can use their influence to help others.
It is difficult to tell if someone has this kind of influence because they are rich or popular, or if they actually care about helping other people. More often than not, it is both!
There are many ways to know whether or not someone is influential, such as looking at their online presence, talking with people that know them, and reading their writings.
In this article, we will talk about some examples of famous individuals who spent time doing things that helped make them special. We will also look at some cases where these actions backfired.

Never underestimate the power of word–mouth disease!
Many times, before anyone even gets a chance to form an opinion of an individual, one hears rumors or false information about them. Many times, these rumors seem totally baseless, but they still hurt your perception of the person.
Many people recognize this person’s face but have no clue as to what they did to reach such fame. Some think it was luck or chance, but most believe their talent or skill set played an important part in their success.
Some may even feel that their talent is overrated because of how much attention they get from all the media and publicity surrounding them. This influence and exposure can be both good and bad, so it depends on who you are and what you want to achieve whether it is worth it to invest time and resources into working on your craft.
It is very difficult to succeed without putting in any effort at all so it is important to determine if investing more will help you or not. If you already have some degree of popularity then perhaps trying to go beyond that boundary is a waste of energy, however, if you are still struggling then it makes sense to try harder.
There is very little to suggest that most well-known people were born with natural talent or charisma. Rather, they developed their skills by doing things, talking about it, and investing time in relationships and practices that hone your skill set.
In fact, according as Aristotle said, “no one was truly talented until trained in what he was given,” so even those who seem naturally gifted didn’t start out that way!
Which makes sense, doesn’t it? If someone had a knack for playing piano from an early age, then why would they spend years training only to play just like everyone else?!
By this logic, there are two types of people: 1) People who have a gift and 2) People who aren’t willing to invest in themselves to develop their talents.
The first type of person will always be more fortunate than the second. They lived without learning how to do something valuable, which can never help them in life. Even if they learned later in life, they lost out on opportunities to improve and grow.
It’s important to realize that being famous isn’t necessarily a good thing unless you make the choice to use your fame for helping others. Unfortunately, many celebrities don’t look at their success that way, instead using it to promote themselves and gain attention.
As mentioned before, being famous is totally dependent on your perception of what people consider you to be. If someone else makes a link between you and something that boosts your image, then you become more well-known.
This is why having a great personality is so important – it helps set up these linking events. People will talk about you and how you live your life, which other people may or may not agree with, but they’ll also remember your style and what you say.
Your personal style matches your internal beliefs and values, which make them feel good about yourself. This subconsciously gives you an extra boost to perform better in front of others.
It’s like wearing a suit of confident armor.
People love them or hate them, but that is because they are very public about who they are as people. What kind of person they want to be comes through in their content and styles of posting constantly.
Some people may not like what they say, but that is okay! Just because you do not agree with someone does not mean they do not have a voice.
We should all feel able to disagree without feeling threatened or attacked. As humans, we connect when we share similarities, so why not enjoy those experiences?
As much as it can get tiring reading about how popular celebrities struggle with mental health or experience abuse, there is an important lesson in it for us.
It can help inspire others to talk more about their own struggles if nothing else. Mental illness is a scary thing, even for those who suffer from it. It can make you feel isolated and ashamed.
But I hope you learned something today- talking about your problems and being willing to face them brings benefits.
As seen with YouTube, famous people have done things like sell makeup or food products, launch clothing lines, and create business ventures. It all comes down to their brands being consistently strong!
As mentioned before, what makes someone popular is how they carry themselves in media and life.
Whether it’s through social media postings, interviews, advertisements, or just general appearances, people learn about who this person is through these interactions.
By looking at their behaviors, styles, and qualities, we develop an understanding of who this person is as a person.
We also get a sense of what types of experiences this person enjoys and why. These insights are valuable because they help us connect with this person and understand them more clearly.
It’s important to note that while there may be instances where someone does something unexpected, but still comes across as authentic and consistent – even when they take time off from media exposure or retreat from public settings - that fact alone doesn’t make them less famous.
In fact, it only increases their popularity since it proves that they are not completely removed nor detached from the outside world. They are actively involved and engaged with others.
For example, look up any well-known celebrity on Google and you will find out how many different businesses they own and run. Some do it very publicly, whereas other stay relatively private.
As seen before, consistency is one of the biggest reasons why your favorite TV show or movie has become popular. People love to watch characters they have come to know and love perform certain actions over and over again – it makes them feel connected.
As we all know, media influence society for better or worse, so there’s an important lesson here: make sure what you do is worth watching!
Consistency is also a reason many people lose faith in religion. Many Christians spend time praying and worshipping God, but then when Jesus does something weird like eat fish or tell a story about the loaves and fishes, nobody seems to care.
This lack of attention is because most people are too focused on getting into heaven to pay much mind to what He is saying at this moment.
So if you want your message to get heard, be aware of what you say, and say things that will either inspire others to agree or refute your ideas.
While not every person who uses social media is famous, everyone in the entertainment industry is definitely considered popular. The reason why so many people use social media to promote themselves is because it works!
It’s a cost-effective way to gain exposure for your product or service. Many companies make money off of their followers by paying advertising fees per follower.
By having more followers, you have more opportunities to earn revenue which makes your business successful. And since most people now live with their phones next to them at night, this medium is never going away.
And although some may say that creating fake accounts is unethical, we think different about the importance of online presence.
This past week, social media was buzzing about the famous fashion brand Victoria’s Secret switching up its logo and packaging. Many people were outraged at how expensively this logo design was done and why it took so long to come up with!
The main issue many people had with the new VS logo is that it no longer includes the word “Secret.” Some even noted that the new logo looks more like an eye makeup product than a lingerie company.
While some may think that changing the name of your company is a good thing, for Victoria’t Secret it is very costly.
Victoria’s Secrets has been known as the most well-known designer underwear brands in America since it opened back in 1995. Changing the name of your company can be extremely difficult if you aren’t prepared ahead of time.
Most companies don’t just drop the name of their business without first trying to find someone to take over ownership. This is especially true in the clothing industry where trademarks and copyrights are enforced heavily.
In fact, there is a one year grace period after a trademark is dropped before you can use it again. That means they have to wait until next January to rebrand, which is a lot of time for any company to spend without revenue.
