Success and fame are the two primary goals of every person in life, especially the youth. Fame seems like glittering water in an infinite desert, but it is a double-edged knife.
Fame is a hard-earned honor with many benefits as well as challenges. Coming under the spotlight demands unending efforts and tiresome hardworking. Consequently, you enjoy the perks of wealth and luxuries in life.
However, these perks do not last long since they are always in close touch with pains and struggles that can blur the luxury of your life. The way we perceive successful people and visualize the life they spend, we never limit our curiosity to be the next them.
The drawback with fame is that it obliges the person under the talks of the town to put extra effort into maintaining the fame. Since fame is a double-edged knife, one can’t hold it for longer with an incorrect grip.
