Must Not Be Lucky

Successful taking advantage of opportunities requires acting at the right time and projecting to the public something new that they would have never thought possible. Thus, people who dare risk their name and resources often evolve later as pioneers. After proving their success, the rest who follow them will have a harder time distinguishing themselves from the pioneers.

However, most pioneers want to remain on top and will do what it takes to make sure they maintain that reputation. For example, certain celebrities make sure that they have major roles in high-profile projects that can increase their stock. Some celebrities look forward to getting invitations to parties held at posh places or sponsored by big names in and out of the industry. In other words, one must be seen mingling with the significant crowd to assure to be at the top.

During a celebrated event of an International Icon (II), social influencers from all over the world attended and made sure they were seen. Among these guests was Homegrown Influencer (HI), who could be considered as among the more famous pioneer in her field. As HI has built quite a reputation in the local scene and has a network abroad, she thought she could get away with a request during the event. HI wanted an upgrade, which meant having more exposure as cameras could catch a glimpse of the section where HI wanted to be. By being in her target area, she could be seen globally.

Confidently, HI requested for the upgrade. Then, just like that, her request was rejected, which sent some sort of ‘who you?’ message. After all, one cannot just sit in the front row along with the more popular and significant guests.

‘Selfishness is one of the more common faces of pride. 'How everything affects me' is the center of all that matters - self-conceit, self-pity, worldly self-fulfillment, self-gratification, and self-seeking.’ - Ezra Taft Benson
