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?

Hey girls! Here’s the second part to my fun interview with golf star Latanna stone. In this part, I asked some fun questions about Latanna’s likes. Let’s see if some of her favorite things are yours as well!

GM: Do you like traveling?

LS: I travel all the time. I like traveling to different places. California, North Carolina, and Miami are some of the places I went to. In Miami, it was pouring!

GM: What are some of your favorite places you would like to visit?

LS: Thailand. I would love to go there! I love the food!

GM: What can you tell our readers about following their passion, like you are doing? What is something you love about your achievements?

LS: I won a lot of tournaments. Mostly, I love my player of the year award. But, I got them from following my passion. If a girl wanted to dance, I would tell her to try to dance. Try to take lessons, and make sure you try out what you want to do.

GM: What are some of the things you like to do in your spare time?

LS: I like to hang out with my friends, on Sundays or Fridays. I like to swim and one of my friend has a huge pool we swim in! I have 2 dogs, and I love them. One of my dogs is named Cinnamon Buns, and is an English bulldog, and the other is named Sandy and is a mutt. I like playing with them. When I’m on vacation, I’m on vacation, but I am still playing golf! I can’t get away from it!

GM: What is your favorite kind of food? How about your favorite book?

LS: My favorite kind of food is spinach dip! I just ordered it and I’m going to eat some right now. My favorite book is Captain Underpants- it’s so funny!

Well, I hope you enjoyed my interview with Latanna as much as I did. I found out we were really similar- we both like to just go for it and we both like that spinach and artichoke dip at some restaurants! Anyway, I hope Latanna does really well in her tournaments; I know we’ll be following her!
