Truth is, all that glitters isn't gold and there are some perks to being part of the pack.
1. YOUR CLOTHES DON'T HAVE TO MATCH
When you're a leader, academically, politically, literaturally?/literally? (lol), etc, everybody watches your every move.You always have to be on your game. This post came to me as yet another, "what were they thinking?" article popped up, talking about celebrity outfits. I couldn't help thinking that the press would have a field day with me if I were ever that famous.
Top tier people always have to be well put together. And it's not just clothes. You're not allowed to get angry in public. You can't just say something stupid. You can't have a bad day.
But we can.
2. A BAR SO LOW, YOU CAN'T LIMBO UNDER IT
Success raises the bar. Average people have moderate success levels. I remember once I tried to study for my CXC's with a neighbour. He didn't put that much effort in, and I got frustrated and asked him why he wouldn't work. And he gave me a weird and warped bit of wisdom.
"Noone has any expectations for me, whatever I do will be fantastic."3. NOBODY WANTS TO SEE YOU FALL
To trespass into rap mogul territory, there are a lot more haters when you're on top. There are always people ready to point out your shortcomings. Sometimes there are even some who will actively aim for your destruction.
WRAP IT UP
These are some reasons I think it's great being "average." How about you guys? Do you think these are perks? Can you think of any other perks?
