Following in someone's footsteps will always cast a wide shadow
Some people manage to break free of this overcasting shadow but when you're following in the footsteps of others, (whether it's by choice or by name - being born into a well respected family), this will always create expectations.
By carving your own path by applying past experiences and other people's tips, advice and experiences (taken with a pinch of salt), you can create your own foundation and create your own shadow.
Don't be afraid or scared to follow the path less travelled by your peers or friends. Taking calculated risks is how careers are born from jobs and hobbies that people believe can't be.
You are your own foe, friend, shadow and destiny. Pick which one you want to be most.
