FAME: WHY ARE SO MANY PEOPLE DESPERATE FOR IT

“We all want the good, yet reject the bad.”


FAME

So many people in America today are desperate for fame. So desperate they are willing to go to extreme lengths, even if it’s at the cost of them losing themselves in the process. And what is it all about; is it worth it? And for so many, it’s not because we love our privacy. But for others it’s the cost of doing what you do.

Now, that does not mean that all famous people are these fame, attention seeking individuals. I am referring to the people who throw their children out there for the sake of a check. Or the reality families that always lead to a family breakdown somehow.

requirements

It times past you had to have some sort of talent to be considered famous. You couldn’t just throw yourself out there and expect people to just bite. You to have something that made you attractive for people to buy into; or they weren’t having it. Now, anyone with an Instagram following is a famous person. No true talent is required to have a high level of notoriety.

psychological ramifications

You think to yourself, who in the world would want to be famous. And when I say that, you have a lot of people who are good at what they do. And they become very well-known as a result. Meaning, I don’t think Mark Zuckerberg was seeking fame, but he is a famous person. I don’t think Michael Jordan was seeking fame, but he is famous.

People who seek out fame in life, the people who always need to show the world their lifestyle have something else going on mentally. Because the constant validation from the outside world, when it’s supposed to come from the inside out says a lot. It’s not good to be alive, everyone has to know every second of the day, what you have and where you live.

downfall

Will it ultimately be the downfall of society; the answer is no. Because the vast majority of people are not seeking fame in their lives. They just want to go to work and come home safely. But for the attention seekers, they continue to trek on as well.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
