To wake up famous is to be the best possible version of yourself without worrying what others think of you. You will not please everyone, all the time. In fact, this is a good gauge of your authenticity: if everybody else is thrilled with you, you are acting outside your highest integrity. Chances are, YOU are unhappy. What is the point of being famous if you are miserable?
In the book Purple Cow, Seth Godin says:
If you’re remarkable, it’s likely that some people won’t like you. That’s part of the definition of remarkable. Nobody gets unanimous praise–ever. The best the timid can hope for is to be unnoticed. Criticism comes to those who stand out.
Einstein, who was decidedly remarkable, observed:
Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.
I don’t mean to suggest that you deliberately make people unhappy; just understand that their happiness is not your responsibility.
Emotions and opinions are not static. Neither is fame. Think of excellence as your practice; it is a craft you will continually improve.
And when you make mistakes? Celebrate them for what they are: evidence that you are learning and improving.
At the end of the day, fall asleep knowing that you will wake up famous tomorrow.
