Hell, if you, anybody, somebody wanted to be famous, they could do a really evil act and be known all over the US. Presuming only positive acts make a difference, that's not making a difference.
Hell, why be famous if you're not making a difference?
If you really want to make a difference, you have to do everything within your power, with what power has been given to you by X, to be the best of what you are meant to be. Then, if the people recognize the effort you put into your work and if your work fits in with current popular mechanics, then you have a chance to be famous.
A street sweeper who does a damn good job is not famous in any respect. How many street sweepers do we see idolized in the media, on t.v., billboards, and songs? Street sweepers aren't famous, but they make a difference. No one would hardly tell. In fact, we may not even notice at all. Maybe this is how we 'respect' most people that make a difference.
Fame is not making a difference. Although, making a difference can bring someone fame.
Try focusing on making a difference, being the best that you're meant to be. Using the talents that God gave you to make a difference in the lives of others. Fame is only temporary. It goes with the times. But the feeling you get from changing the lives of others in a positive way will last with you for the rest of your life. Trust me.
i had the whole speech last night, should of recorded it. it's supposed to be between a young person who is struggling to be known and a priest who is giving that person counsel.
