The common picture of a celebrity involves glam, glitz, and paparazzi. There’s usually the inability to live a normal life because of adoring fans filling your every waking hour with efforts to be close to you. And if you’re one of the chosen few…you can have a public meltdown and collapse from under the pressure of your awesomeness.
There’s another kind of celebrity that is available to everyone, but doesn’t require you to pose for The National Enquirer or keep a change of clothes at the Betty Ford Clinic. As this type of celebrity, you are actually required to be a normal, approachable person. In fact, everything about you looks just like the folks next door…except for one thing.
It’s that One Thing that makes you a celebrity because no one on this earth has your experience, depth of knowledge, or passion in that area. By tapping into that One Thing, you will launch yourself into exactly the level of stardom and celebrity the world needs you to be.
“So get to it already PJ! What is it?”
I don’t know…but I bet you do.
You’ve probably known since you were a kid, but someone told you to stop daydreaming and focus on more practical things. Or you looked around you and thought, “Someone else already does what I love to do, so I should probably do something else. Something more realistic for a person with my background.”
It’s in those nudges from childhood that our celebrity exists. The things you played and dreamt of when time seemed to stand still.
Your celebrity waits on the fringes of your heart, pulling toward things you’d do if you didn’t have to work for a living. You think you grown out of them, but they never go away.
Yes, you have the makings of a celebrity in the area you love the most. The level of celebrity depends on where you are needed. The world…your community…your family…your business….all of them are equally huge and not everyone is called to the same place, but we are all called.
On August 19-20, I’ll be speaking at a conference called, Celebritizing Your Business, and we’ll be covering this exact topic. What does it take to make you a celebrity in your market? I get to speak twice and my message is around becoming a celebrity in your life. The event is in Ft. Worth, TX and I’d like to invite you to come if you can.
Use this link to have a look and please mention my name in the process so I can keep track of who will be there that I know. I’ll want to talk with you 1-on-1.
I think you’ll be blessed if you come. Even if you don’t, please take this thought.
What would I spend the rest of my life doing if I were forced to pick one thing?
The answer may or may not surprise you, but the power of knowing that answer can transform your life.
