Fame, fame is best sought when either young and very cocky, energetic and naturally optimistic, or when wealthy, and can hide from the public when tired and don't want to be seen.
But fame, when or if it comes to you while working mundane every day job, and achieve a level of fame on the side through performing or news headline ext, can be very stressful.
Say you work in a mud pit from 7-4, by the time you're off work, all beat up, mentally and physically worn, now say you have a performance in 3 hours where audience has no idea you work in a mud pit, and think you're a professional entertainer.
That can be stressful in more than one way.
Audience may think just because you're on stage you're getting paid big money, when in reality you may not be getting paid a dime...but do it for exposure.
Then when shows over have to come back home to grey environment, get a few hours sleep, wake up and spend day in mud pit again.
Many want fame, but few are willing to work for it
Many want fame, but very few are willing to work for it or have the bravado for it.
With the persuit of fame comes a lot of rejection, getting laughed at, mockery, that's what the crowd does, and or reviewers of your performance.
And you can't just fight everyone who disses your performance, you can't take it personal, or so they say.
Its' why so few achieve fame, cause it's hard, can be nerve racking, and make many turn to drugs to deal with the pressures.
I mean if you're 'off', yet have to be on in 1 hour, give performance, whether music, comedy, acting, ect, then no wonder many turn to drugs to get them temporary courage.
When in fact, when 'off', a good performer will simply improve and work being 'off' into routine, let audience know you're 'off', and just deal with it 'as is'.
That's how you connect with audience.
But don't get to personal, they don't come to show for that.
Only mega celebrities who have already achieved fame can get away with that.
But even then if they get to personal it can creep people out.
The audience really doesn't want you to be 'human' like them, or like their 'co-worker', the audience wants, needs, you to be above it all.
It's like an illusion, it's why they come, they need to escape reality and join yours for a few minutes or hours.
