Fame. Puts you there, where things are hollow

I’ve recently come to the conclusion that many people could be famous, but they consciously or subconsciously avoid becoming so. Fame, at least in part, requires time, work, risks, the accumulation of controversy and, possibly, the gaining of ill will and enemies. Perhaps I am generalizing my own experience, but the pattern seems to be we are all exposed to opportunities or novelties and then we decide to plunge in or to stand outside and watch patiently for things to resolve.
