Shadows

I have been giving a lot of thought recently to those who live their life in the shadow of others. People they think are more creative, important, famous or whatever- that just knowing them or using their wealth of knowledge will somehow get them to the top as well.

What leads people to walk in the shadows others cast? Why are they comfortable instead, of dropping a name and being someone unworthy, if only in their own thoughts, of walking into the spotlight, accepting the accolades and to finally shine on their own?
