The Fame Trap

The Fame Trap

In seeking to progress, you must relinquish the craving for praises and recognition. They eat away your energy that is better spent for progress. 

Now it is easier than ever to fake your way to fame. You must overcome this temptation because obsessing over stardom drains your psychic energy to deal with your interminable discontent. You, too, will quickly fall into obscurity if you did not earn the fame.

You must stop inquiring “how great you are now?” but transcend the question into “what you could be?”

When your craft makes a dent, the fame will take care of itself.
