“Are you just, like, so happy all the time?” This is the question a fellow actor put to Josh Radnor when he scored the leading role on the hit TV show How I Met Your Mother. Radnor’s answer – no – is unsurprising to anyone familiar with the concept of the hedonistic treadmill. Rather than leading him to profound new states of ecstasy, the show’s success actually did the opposite. getAbstract recommends Radnor’s insights to those in the public eye, regardless of the size of their sphere of influence. If you consider the megaphone that is social media, that’s nearly everyone.
In this summary, you will learn
- How actor Josh Radnor dealt with the challenges of fame,
- Why it can be beneficial to expose yourself to criticism and
- How social media give people the opportunity to be “contagiously good.”
