Celebrities have always fascinated us, some people love each and every celebrity unconditionally and are obsessed with them, other dislike celebrities, but the fact is that all of us know about them. Celebrities are watched and heard by millions and they know it, many of them use their fame to cause a positive influence in the world and some of them don’t really care about the message they send to their fans.
Celebrities have glamorous lives that fascinate us and keep up interested, even if we know that they’re just humans like the rest of us we are always reading about them and sometimes trying to imitate them, that could be negative if we try to emulate the bad habits they may have since they are not flawless people, nobody is.
What do Celebrities do that we should do as well
1.- Concern for environment, that is not matter of fashion or the latest tendencies, it’s a reality that affect all of us and we need to take care of our planet if we want to survive to our own destructive behavior. Some celebrities who concern for environment are: Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Natalie Portman, Salma Hayek, Orlando Bloom and much more.
We may not have the same resources that celebrities have, but we can contribute with environment doing what we are able to do according to our resources.

4.- Social activists, many celebrities are concerned about the injustice in our world, and they actively try to do the right thing and help people who really need it, we may not be like Angelina Jolie or Antonio Banderas for example, but we can try to do something for people next to us that are passing through a bad moment, charity work is always welcome in all levels
5.- Persevere, never give up, many celebrities spend a lot of time pursuing their dreams and being rejected several times before reach success, like Sylvester Stallone for example, The Beatles, Lady Gaga, Elvis Presley, Walt Disney are some artist that were rejected before being super stars, we can imitate their behavior, never give up, and always pursue our dreams.
