HALF THE TIME
Just recently Cardi B tied Nicki Minaj as the female rapper with the most #1’s tin Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart history (4 each). This accolade undoubtedly sparked more Cardi/Nicki comparisons and probably had people saying look at how Cardi did it in such a shorter time than Nicki.
The thing is she’s supposed to do it quicker and that’s not a knock to Nicki, its actually a credit to her. When people pave the way it shouldn’t take the people that come after them the same amount of time it took their predecessor to accomplish the same feat. If it did then what was the point of the accomplishment anyway?
All the accomplishment show is that its possible! Once a person see that its possible that should be enough ammo to go head on into reaching that goal. This is fact in fiction and even non-fiction. Once Goku reached super saiyan it didn’t take a long time for the next saiyan to become super saiyan as well. When George Lewis Ruffin became the first black student in 1869 to earn a degree from Harvard Law School it didn’t take until 1969 for another black to earn a degree from there as well. When these impossible feats happen eventually it should become a common feat. We see black law students enter Harvard all the time, its a gazillion super saiyans, so on and so forth.
However, no matter how common the feat becomes it should still be celebrated because it took immense hard work and dedication. When a goal is reached in half the time, the predecessor shouldn’t feel a way nor should the successor feel superior. As time progress a person will always accomplished what you did in a shorter time but only because they’re supposed to and when that happens don’t be afraid to give them room to shine.
