"As though I have nothing material-like; I have wisdom from hardships that makes me go through troubled times." Argued by the stoic.

"Not all are born with a silver spoon, but that doesn't mean you'd have to be an asshole if you are the one who's blessed." Argued by the pacifist.

Fully grasping the concept of a changing and progressing world, we tend to look back on the authors of our society's evolution from the dark ages and up to now in the modern world.

We must appreciate the lingering ideas that tend to go inside our minds. The innovative people and creative ideas that launched humanity into space. The images that elongate the lifespan of a human person, and the ideas that preserve the culture of specific human societies.

But, as you're reading this, you're probably wondering if: will you ever be an author of humanity's progress? Or you're just going to be another element of another author's story.

The answer to that is how you envision the world, the passion that you want to change something. Neither path is terrible; it matters how it leaves an impact on the planet. The author can't make an idea a reality if there are no certain elements provided, neither the details won't exist if there would be no author dictating.

We look upon our young selves as underdogs that are slowly hiking up every mountain top with the hopes of reaching the peak, fulfilled with the outcome of what we've become.

We slowly grow into something of relevance, that we eventually leave an impact on the world.

There are certain drawbacks in the way of an underdog such as:

  1. Crab-Mentality people.

You'll meet a lot of people in the way who has a mentality such as these. The idea of success is always enticing that even people will compete with you to the top. The major drawback of this is that when you surround yourself with these people, there are almost zero chances that you'll get to reach the peak. Just like crabs, when clustered inside a bucket, neither of them is getting to the top. "If I can't have it, neither can you."

  1. Bad blood

Although blood will always be thicker than water, it will also be a significant drawback when you have bad blood. Rivalries in the family are toxic, mostly fueled by hate and insecurities. It will be bad for your mentality, and it would waste a lot of time trying to appease their unfound resentment.

  1. Writer's block

The lack of motivation and inspiration is always one of the biggest hurdles that an author may face. The lack of elements that gives stagnation to one's thoughts can often be annoying. You can overcome it by a long relaxation and a time of peace of mind. After all, all work, no play, makes Jack a dull boy.

So as an underdog, what will you shape yourself? An author or an element?

Nonetheless, the pyramids of Giza wasn't built in a day.

I'm not a writer but I always root for the underdogs. Sometimes, there's something about them I always find unique that the author from the top doesn't have. ( No offense to that pros)

Yes, underdogs surprise the audiences more. The top came from under, and from under comes to the top.
