On top of the world

Why do people dream of reaching the top? What is there goal? What do they plan to do once they make it big? None of it makes any sense to me. You fight for fame and then what? What does fame do to you? Look at celebrities today. Most of them have gotten arrested, charges pressed, divorced, drunk to extreme levels, they have lost their kids, or they have died of things like drug overdoses, alcohol overdoses, or they committed suicide. Do you really want to be like that? Why not stay the way you are and avoid the press. Its better for you, and for society.
