Not everyone wants to be the Pope. Too much pressure and expectations.
Not everyone wants to be Dangote. Too much hardwork.
Being rich is popular these days. Being popular is also popular. Hence reality T.V stations, BigBrother, Facebook Live, Twitter fake followers and Wechat.
Once upon a time being poor was also popular amongst Communists & Socialists.
Being a slave owner was also quite popular back in the day.
But the values that popular culture demands is not what everyone agrees with it or lives by it. And neither should they!
So don’t strive to be popular by just doing what is popular now. Unless of course you’re forcing the world to adopt to your own beliefs and worldview, then you can become famous for doing that.
In that case be prepared to be unpopular for a while before becoming popular.
