Fame and fortune do sadly bring unhappiness, past a certain point. Up until that point it's smooth sailing and the best time you can hope for.
But afterwards, you become pressured into staying famous, which leads you into a downward spiral of uhappiness, as you try to stay in the public eye, you start to turn to drugs, as a coping mechanism to handle all the stress being put on you to perform, which will start to cost a lot of money, so the fortune will slowly dwindle as well. This causes even more stress as you realise you are losing money and popularity, which makes you very unhappy indeed.
In the end, its not the fame and fortune that makes you unhappy, it's keeping the fame and fortune that makes you unhappy.
I am neither rich nor famous so I don't know. I think money only magnifies what people are already though
Fame can cause quite abit of unhappiness, when you lose your privacy, and eyes are upon you everywhere you go can be quite unnerving.
Fortune however should provide any moral and ethical person with an abundance of happiness, an unhappy rich person is the idiot of all idiots!
Linking fame/fortune to happiness/unhappiness is interesting. I don't think there is any correlation between the two. Take for example Britney (enough said?), who has apparently tried to commit suicide. It is hard to say whether she would have been happier without money. And then look at celebrities (all inclusive) who do not appear to be particularly unhappy. The fame Bono (of U2) has affected him but in somewhat of a good way in that he uses his money to give to charity and or invest in his friend's businesses (which can be linked to nepotism?). Plus the media looks for scandalous news (ie: extreme states of happiness of unhappiness), which makes the day-to-day lives of the celebrities not that interesting. All the same, there are happy celebrities and unhappy ones, and their fame and fortune do not appear to be linked with their happy/unhappy state.
Everything that we come across our life has its ups and downs. From nothing and suddenly gain fame and fortune of course millions will envy you. no one would known that you have lost freedom. Famous people when ask a question what would they want in life they would often ask for freedom rather than fame. therefore fame and fortune does not guarantee happiness.
yes.. i'm agree.
No it does not but it doesn't give happiness either. It's about how you handle it.
fame and fortune are materialistic and it should be the center in one's life. It also depend on how one define happiness because there are people who found happiness living in properity and fame. While others who seek for other priceless valuable principles like love and trust these people will be happy disregard of their wealth circumstances. In my case happiness would never exist my glass is half empty.
happiness for the moment : Yes
for a lifetime : no
Unless your greatest aspiration is to be an inspiration. But think of your deathbed and you've been suffering for weeks and you have noone.
Because the deifinition of success in business, the undercurrent is, noone will like you at the end because you made your success more important than them.
