#ThrowbackThursday: A Look Back At the Lives of Celebs Born In July!

By ,

Celebrities, celebrities…. We think that it is the glitz and glam of the lives of celebrities that captures our attention? It sure does, to some extent, but ultimately we all fall for what they are in their profession and personality; i.e. it may be some incredible character they performed or became real life heroes, and that captured the hearts of millions. Whether it is a star actor like Russell Crowe or a Prince like William, Duke of Cambridge; people love them world over for their personal and professional mettle.

There are critics who may praise them beyond what they deserve, or, similarly, spray vitriol all over social media to discredit them, but once a person becomes an inspiration to common public, he also becomes a role model. Good or bad, that does not concern a die-hard fan. They live on the newsfeed from their favorite celebrities and enjoy the gossip columns that discuss anything related to them. Life is good when you have an idol who is adulated by the international audience. Hot or not, a celebrity’s physical attraction is just not enough to earn him honors on a universal level. You don’t find superstars during the record moments of Oscar awards only, they may have nothing to do with media and may serve humanity in a completely different way.

In our blog, we don’t just provide you survey resources to improve the working and output of your organization, we also show you how many have already done it. Whether the inspiration comes from media celebrities or Powerful CEOs of 2014, our job is to acknowledge and promote the impressive work ethics, entrepreneurial values, talent, and above all, courage that these examples display and that is precisely what their fans and our readers can learn from them.

Here is another list of extremely famous celebrities born in the month of July; the same month in which Julius Caesar was born and hence gave it the name ‘July.’ Hope you will get your fill of inspiration from their vision, flair, and sophistication. Learn! Enjoy!
