Famous Entertainers and Athletes Deserve Their High Salaries
Many people hold that the majority of famous entertainers and athletes are overpaid and undeserving. As far as I am concerned, those people deserve their high salaries.
Firstly, famous entertainers and athletes have to make painstaking efforts, Let's take athletes as an example. Athletes are constantly having time-consuming training. They not only play games, but also train in the off-season and during the season. They have to give up time with their family to travel. Besides they also have to sacrifice their privacy. Famous people must undergo the intense scrutiny of the media, television and newspapers. This is a difficult lifestyle to lead, as one must constantly be careful of what he says or does in public. Another factor to consider is the risk of injury. Houston Rockets' star centre Yao Ming suffered from knee and leg injuries before he managed to attend the 2008 Beijing Olympics. And there are too many similar cases. Secondly, athletes and entertainers are the source of inspiration and motivation to excel in life for youngsters. They set an example for children and young people, so they can get impetus on how to work, how to set high goals and how to cope when one fails. Young people can develop confidence and positive attitudes towards their lives by taking inspiration from athletes' and entertainers lives.
In conclusion, famous entertainers and athletes earn money through their uncommon efforts and they provide inspiration for children as well as youngsters. Therefore, they deserve high salaries. (248 words)
