If you could be rich, influential, or famous, which would you be, and why?
I'm finally 18!!!
#2
Influential, surely. Because you'll most likely get rich and famous out of it anyway. I'd rather be famous for actually doing something
#5
Rich because my goal in life is to be rich because I've never been rich before.

The feeling of acquiring wealth is amazing. Like just earning money in general.
I don't wanna be famous because I wouldn't have any privacy, and I don't want to be influential because that would bring fame along with it.


edit: I don't want to be well-known in any way. like even if a lot of people look at me or talk to me or compliment me one day I feel really awkward and cringeful and just generally horrible, and this is all "good" attention.

I agree. I would love to be very influential. You don't have to be famous and have to deal with satisfying the public. Your influence can bring you money but not so much that you draw attention. Sounds perfect to me.

famous, because I could only be famous by playing guitar so that would mean I'm a famous guitarist.

You could be famously bad though. Or someone who's a gigantic asshole to everyone. Fame isn't always positive.

I think I would like to be a famous guitarist, but I don't think I would like not having privacy. I would love to have adoring fans, but I would grow to hate them.

First, I shall become famous.

With my fame, I shall sponsor products for associated conglomerates and become rich.

With my wealth, I shall buy influence.

Consequently, I shall be famous, rich, and influential.


First, I need to become famous.

If you begin as influential then you can gain money and use that money to fund an alter ego. Make your alter ego famous. Look at Lady Gaga. She does so much crazy shit that nobody bothers with her real life.

But, how will you gain influence? Beat people up?

If you want fame, it's easy. Be cute [girls usually say I am cute like a little brother] and make a video on YouTube .

Learn how to be charismatic and manipulative. Be Gatsby pretty much. But actually do things.

Well, that depends. Being famous can be for to be make you influential, and vice versus. So, all three kinda go hand on hand.
It's a process, not an event.
#27
They all kind of come with each other, but if it was possible to have one without the others I would choose to be rich.

I've always dreamed of owning a house on a secluded beach that I could comfortably live at until I died.
I don't mean it to be greedy, but the ocean is purely awesome and if I could spend years upon years listening to it, living at it and loving it, totally unimpeded. I'd be happy.
Or so I imagine.

I'd probably spend it on hookers and blow though. what's the point in money if you don't spend it.
It's over simplified, So what!

Rich.

I don't care what other people do, as long as they stay out my way, and I would hate being famous.

But if I was rich, at least I could buy tons of Kettle Chips.

Don't spend. Invest.

I'd want to be rich then. Money is power, so influence is served to me on a dinner plate. Then there's the fame you get for investing your money and influencing businesses to do things the public wants. Chicks will follow afterwards.

On the other hand, being the influential type leads to higher income, and if you're influential enough, the media will make you their little mascotte (fame). Just look at the Kardashians for example, the only talented woman there is the matriarch who set up the show in the first place.

No point in spending money if you don't have class

I think we'll have to get bendy-straws to snort the blow. all the classy kids had bendy-straws.

You can't be influential without being either famous or rich.
I don't really care about any of them. Of the three though, being rich would be the best IMO.
#36
Influential. But only for the right reasons. Not because somebody likes the way I did or say something. I'd want to inspire them to be a better person.
Quote by macashmack

Not really. You can be an influential teacher, start a petition to influence people to do something good, hell, even being a good coworker might inspire someone to look up to you. Charity is kind of an influential thing if you think about it. Maybe religion too, but I won't go into that.

The only difference between being influential and famous/rich is a wider audience. But being influential on your own isn't impossible.
