I wonder what it feels like growing beside someone rising at an astronomic rate. World famous legends attended practice with obscure extras overtime. And even though 1 thing or the other may have been different about each of them, the extras would've expected similar results
But this person just keeps improving until they realise it's useless trying to challenge themselves with this overwhelming competition.They just look on as the person climbs to a higher stage, & doesn't stop; becomes a national figure, continental icon, globally renowned identity
I imagine how painful it must feel. Think of the guy who owned a shop beside dangote's 1st store. Or Dammy krane and wizkid? Sir emeka offor's fellow apprentice. How do people like that sleep at night? Do they wonder where they lost it, and what they could've done differently?
Is online media difficult for them to use? Opening it everyday to see their little buddy influence millions of strangers, create world records, knowing it both happened under their noses, that they probably tried every rule in the book to replicate this guy's tremendous success
Yet it got them nowhere. Bitter pill to swallow. Better imagined. I don't think I could live with that.
Notwithstanding the fast one luck plays from time to time. Providence usually has just 1 slot per province. Slim chance, but yea

Between growing average despite similar conditions, and actually rubbing shoulders with an eventual great but being unlucky, idk which would hurt more

0-10: carefree. Nothing matters

11-17: builds an ego and grows an attitude. Broke, powerless, stupid and doesn't know it

18-25: figures out their passion. Devote resources to its learning

26-32: setup products/career. First big money cuz little responsibilities
People don't like admitting the rest of the journey relies on how strong what is built at this stage is

33-40: live with the flourishing or harsh results made by the previous state's decisions. Jealousy is rife here. Midlife crisis pupils are fostered here too
41-48: the final crusade for those pursuing advancement in civil service or academics. The less adventurous have fully settled with their lot in life as mid to lower level of the food chain. There is still traces of youthful vigour to cater for the family
