The World is at Your Command
How does it feel to be a young star?
Every once in a while, you hear about an exceptionally gifted or talented individual who is succeeding in an outstanding manner, and they are still at a very young age. I can’t help but wonder about the kind of good life they surely must lead. Think of it. To be wealthy, loved, esteemed, and famous while still in your youth. The best years of your life are still ahead of you, you still have a full life to live, and already, you have accomplished more, and are appreciated for more than most people ever will be in their entire lives. You have already earned a place in history, and in the history of your respective pursuit. You can look around you at all of the other leaders and legends of other fields and pursuits, and know that you rank right among with them, knowing that they know about you, and respect you as an equal. You would know that you are the equal to the other champions, because you are one yourself. Let’s look more into this. If you were, say, a champion athlete, you could look at the champion Olympic competitors, the top baseball, basketball, football, and soccer players; the top star athletes in all of the sports, including your own, and know that you are one of them, and know that they know that you are one of them. You could look at the top names in other fields – the top musicians, artists, designers, actors, actresses, writers, playwrights – and know that they also see you as a top name in your field. You could know that the top scientists, inventors, philosophers, humanitarians would know about you, and respect and admire you. The biggest names in journalism, broadcasting, public relations, advertising and promotion would respect you. Everywhere you went in the world, you would be known and admired for what you are, what you do, and what you have done. The heads of state, royalty, and world leaders would know who you are, and respect you for all that you have done, and what you will do in the many good years to come for you. Yes, you would have a special status and recognition, a special position of significance in the hearts and minds of society, your fame and ultimately your influence would spread far and wide, preceding you and remaining in the memories of those who saw you. You would be a celebrity, a star, a dandy, and almost seen as royalty. The world would be at your command, it would seem.
A Legend in Your Own Time
Making a Difference in the World
Real V.I.P.’s Don’t Eat on the Street!
Life on the Pedestal
A Legend on a Fairy Tale Scale
And So Floweth the River
I know that I have greatly idealized my perception of the life of the young star, but I really can’t help but wonder and imagine how good their lives must be…
