Being Rich vs Being Famous
As we all know that there are many rich and famous people around the world. Most of them such as football, David Beckham, musician, Steve Wonder, and inventor, Bill Gates became rich and famous is because of their talent, hardworking and creativity. However, some rich people might not be famous as they are fortunate to be born with a silver spoon. In my opinion, a person should put more efforts on their studies and career in order to be rich and famous. The different aspects of being rich and being famous are lifestyle, social status, and privacy. First and foremost, the lifestyle of a rich person is much better than a famous person.
Being rich, he can have many things that a famous person might not has. This is because some famous people might not be rich; on the other hand, it is simply easy for a rich person to buy things that he wishes to have. Furthermore, famous movie stars have a more stressful lifestyle. It cannot be denied that they often followed by paparazzi, thus some of the unwanted news about them will be shown on television or printed in magazines and newspaper. Nevertheless, a rich person seldom becomes the headlines among the public as his achievement might not attract the attention of the paparazzi.
Therefore, he may have a more comfortable and peaceful lifestyle. Secondly, a rich person might have better social status than a famous person. Basically, there are many things to be considered when climbing the social ladder. Those things are your money, your family, who you know and how you came across your money or fame. Billionaires and millionaires are at the top of their social status but are hardly famous to the younger demographic because they are not “famous” by virtue of being presented to the younger generation’s information highway. Famous politicians and movie stars are very different from one another in many aspects.
As we all know, a movie stars who is hardworking and has great determination will easily gain respect and admiration from the public. However, a famous president or politician will gain a wide range of fans only while they are in limelight. Last but not least, if a person is famous, his privacy might be invaded aggressively by paparazzi and stalked by public. This is because they would like to get the latest news of him and report it to public through mass media. Therefore, it will definitely draw the attentions of the public. Actually, there are many people would like us for what we are and not how much money we have.
On the other hand, if he is very rich, people would like him because he is generous and kind hearted person. However, his privacy would be more secured if he always kept a low profile of himself. In conclusion, there are some pros and cons of being rich or being famous. As an ordinary person, many factors should be taking to consideration before making the choice of life. In my opinion, a rich person can become famous by doing some charitable works to help those unfortunate people. Whereas, a famous person can also be rich if he has good qualities such as hardworking, determine, intelligent and creative.
