Time is a great leveller. People may be ahead of you today but it doesn’t mean you can’t lead the pack one day. Your situation may be different when you took over but it is completely in your hand to change your circumstances going forward. No matter where you start from, you are given enough time in this life to reach where you want to. Ten to twenty years henceforth, you cannot complain about your past. Over long term, time nullifies all advantage others began with. You have a fair chance to get ahead. Keep walking.
