Majority of people around the world wants a big name, of course who doesn't want? Having a big name will give you a lot of advantage, people will give you special treatment and a lot of perks will fall into your hands with less effort exerted. Public recognizes you and people expects a lot from you. Some people with big names abuses their authority and step other people's feet without any form of second thought. It is what it is, if a person is popular he already has an advantage.

Some people were born with big names already because they are the children of a well know politician, millionaire businessman, world class athletes, celebrities and other person whose name is so popular. It makes life easier for them, they don't have to work extra hard to get on top. That is why some of them are cocky and so proud, it is because they have everything and they don't need to face a lot of bullshits anymore.

What if you don't have a big name? how will you make your way on top? Well there is only one answer for that - HARDWORK. There is nothing else you can do but to work hard and outwork everyone if you want to make it to the top. But having no big name has some advantages too but most of them comes from mental advantage, here are some of them:

1. You have a mindset of nothing to lose

Because you don't have anything in your life and you came from an unknown background what is left for you to lose? NOTHING. That gives you a big advantage, people who already have names are so scared that they might screwed up that is why all of their actions are so conservative. People who have nothing to lose are risk takers and desperate, they can make actions that are out of the box and can put them into a best position to succeed. If you have nothing to lose are you scared of losing? DEFINITELY NOT.

2. It doesn't matter if you choke because people doesn't expect a lot from you.

If you fall short, if you rattle during pressure times people will not criticize you so much because they are not expecting anything from you. They expect you to fail so it is not new to them. Again that takes away a lot of pressure from you and it will also give you stronger motivation to prove them that they are wrong for counting you out. It gives you another mental edge.

3. You don't have any other destination but to move on top

You've been down for your entire life so any movement that you make is making you closer to the top. There is no other destination other than top. All you can do is rise because you came from the bottom, what is lower than bottom? NOTHING. Every positive move you make is a progress. There is no wrong step for you. Just make sure anything you do or think is positive because there is no progress in doing such negative things, it will only slow down your journey to success.

4. There is lesser pressure for you to perform well.

You don't have a fan base so there will be no people who will get disappointed if you lose.This only means lesser pressure to you again. But this doesn't mean you don't have to perform well, you still have to do your best even if there is no one expecting you to win. Lesser pressure means freedom and a lot of air to breathe, you are loose when competing so you can become very creative and more expressive.

That is why people with big names especially in sports doesn't want to compete with athletes that have no names. It is not because they are not challenged, it is because they have too much to lose. They are afraid because people with no names are hungrier and wanted to make a name for themselves.

So don't feel small if you have no name because you have a big advantage, if you fall short, if you screwed up you have nothing to lose. You are free to do what you wanted to do.
