What do we see in a celebrity?
 
When we look at famous people, be it any field, we are awestruck by their persona and the aura of success that surrounds them. We are all fascinated by celebrities and famous people. Their charismatic personality is captivating, which draws people towards them. Impressive, inspiring, amazing, awe-inspiring are often how such people are described. We admire them and we aspire to be like them.
 
And at times, one can't help but feel a twinge of envy at their success.
 
All successful people have some qualities, which separate them from the rest of us. But, it is possible to cultivate these special qualities.
 
When you read about famous people, see them on TV or in person, then instead of all the above emotions, think about and analyze their distinct qualities or personality traits, which led them on to the path of success... Think "what quality he/she has that is lacking in me and if develop that quality, can I become the same".
