Fame Vs. Success Quote

“Don’t confuse fame with success.  Madonna is one; Helen Keller is the other.”

– Erma Bombeck


fame vs. Success quotes
Fame vs. Success

The fact is both of these women are famous.  Helen Keller was quite the celebrity in her own right back in the day.  And don’t get me wrong – I think Madonna is extremely talented and I for one found her recent Superbowl performance to be one of the most interesting in quite awhile – All hail Cleopatra…

But of course the takeaway from this quote is that we don’t want to confuse being famous, or chasing fame for true success which is achieving something meaningful and powerful.  Success, or being extra ordinary as we GirlMoguls like to think about it, is not about chasing fame for the sake of being fame -it’s about being good, successful, extraordinary at meaningful things – whether it’s a job, a  passion, being a partner or a mother.

Perhaps we won’t achieve the kind of fame Madonna has or Helen Keller had, but we will known for being successful…success lends a glow, an aura and something irrestible to you.  So chases success, not fame. Fame comes from other people annoiting you – success come from your own acheivement.

So, tell us – what do you want to be successful at?


On the other hand, I’ve never had a problem with striving to be rich…so be sure to check out GirlMogul’s Rich Mama Spending Plan  – A Real Budget for Real People,
