It is rightly said that one should praise themselves first, make themselves strong, successful and worthy. So that when you see around, you find yourself to be praised by other and your near and dear ones treat you as their role model.
When someone takes you as their role model, you will feel a sense of achievement. But if things are not going in your favour, you feel jealous of other, disappointed, looser, etc, etc.
But that doesn’t mean your life ends here, you still have time to get up and set goals and be a role model for those around you. For that, you need to decide whether you want to follows someone’s footsteps or want others to follow your footprints.
