How to become a celebrity in the world today? How to become not just a star but a new kind of celebrity.
You might be thinking, what am I talking about? Initially, when I came up with this, I was thinking the same thing, like, what is the new celebrity today? I look around, and we see lots of celebrities, we see lots of famous people.
The question is, who are they? And how do you really get to know somebody?
How to Become a Celebrity in Your Own Right
I believe you get to know someone where you learn about their life journey and their life story.
You hear about somebody’s life experience and what they’ve been through. Perhaps from that journey and that story, we all learn lessons that maybe we want to share with other people. Whether these lessons are right for somebody else, at least it gives them something to think on.

If it comes from a place of vulnerability and authenticity, then it’s straightforward for people to pick up on what you’re saying. And maybe they’ll have some ideas and insights about their own life.
In my opinion, the new celebrity today is someone who shares their life story, shares their journey, shares their lessons, shares their message.
How Do You Get Famous? Find Your Message
I believe we all have a message inside of ourselves. The first step you can take, whether you were thinking about this today or not, is to find it.
You might have been thinking, “I was not thinking at all that I could be the new celebrity in the world. I was not thinking at all that anybody would listen to my story or my message.” I’m here to share with you that I felt that way for the longest time.

I think most of my life, probably why I became a coach and a speaker and why I wanted to have massive success is because I just wanted to be heard. Even as though I made much money, I never really felt in a place in my heart that what I had to say actually mattered. Over time, as I become more and more myself and I have understood myself, I realized what I do have to say matters actually, and I realized the world needs it.
The world needs positive inspiration, the world needs hope, the world needs role models. Real role models. People that are really being ethical in their life. People that are making decisions that are not only affecting themselves but they’re taking into consideration the people they love. They’re also taking into consideration the groups that they’re part of, and they’re also taking into consideration mankind.
Thinking of it this way is an amazing journey to be on, and I think all of us need to take responsibility in our lives.
It’s Not About How to Become Famous Easy – It’s About Responsibility
I think we look around, and sometimes we look to people like political figures, or we look to movie stars, and we go, “Well, they’ve got it made. They’ve got the money, they’ve got the influence. Let them fix the world.” But the question is, what kind of responsibility are we taking?
The new celebrity is here taking responsibility in their life, and first and foremost, they’re taking responsibility for their journey and their story and their past.
You know, for me, to really take responsibility for my life, I had to clean up my past and take responsibility for being here. I make sure to play the game where I other people could win. And I’m doing it as a coach and a speaker. I am fortunate to I get to share my voice on stages and to market my voice to the world since I’m an entertainer and a performer.

I’ve been able to follow my dreams and, most importantly, behind that is a message, and that’s what the new celebrity is. It’s a person with a message who wants to make an impact, so maybe the question for you today is what message is inside of you?
What’s the thing that you want to share in the world because how do you go about being the new celebrity, or whatever it is you call it, you just got to decide first, “Why am I here and what’s my message to improve humanity?” Because I think at the deepest level, we all want to do things to help other human beings, and I believe today that you can have a real career doing it.
How to Become a Celebrity? Think Thought Leadership
In fact, I believe that with all the knowledge and the wisdom and experience that I have, I’m creating my own ecosystem, my own community of people that can learn how to find the message and go share it with humanity.

People in this community come from all walks of life: people who are skilled in financial worlds, people who are skilled in holistic health, people who are great doctors, people who are great entrepreneurs, people who are great sales people, people who have something to teach and share to the world.
I think the greatest lesson we all can have, or the greatest message, perhaps, we can have for ourselves, is getting into alignment with who we really are, what we really want, and being real to that and going on the search and the journey to discover that truth for ourselves, I believe that’s the new celebrity.
Don’t Ask “Will I Be Famous?” If You Don’t Have Your Message First

We’re surrounded by a world of cheating in relationships, we’re surrounded in a world of people who are unethical when it comes to money, we live in a world where people today, they’re caving in upon themselves. Society’s caving inwards and people are walking around wondering why is this happening, and I think perhaps maybe the step today for each of us to build the world back up is to start by taking responsibility for our own lives
Start by figuring out what that message is inside of ourselves and applying it to our own lives and be the role model for ourselves and then we can go out and maybe expand into our relationships and to our groups and our communities and society and truly make a difference.
