Siblings as teachers
Q: Is the success of a sibling a blessing or a curse? Last week Mark Okoth Obama Ndesandjo acknowledged that it hasn't been easy to be the half brother of President Barack Obama. How difficult is it to live with the success of a brother or a sister, even if they aren't famous?
Definitely a blessing (although not without emotional complications). The more one associates with successful people, whether they are a parent, sibling, colleague or friend, the more one is likely to accomplish things in life.
A successful sibling can teach you lots of things, such as how to set goals and accomplish them as well as how to conduct yourself. Younger or older, they give you someone to learn from and to emulate. Go for it!
