    Why is it that every video I see on youtube consists of 18-25 year old individuals,some who despite dropping out of school,earn more money than doctors,engineers and layers.Most seem to live in mansions and buy luxurious cars.Why? For simply holding a camera and showing themselves having fun? I get that they use advertisements,but still, they should not be payed millions of dollars.As compared to these professions where you basically have to push yourself to the absolute limits to only get considered by universities,getting paid that much for vlogging seems utter madness!Perhaps the world is unfair afterall.

    When you view it that way then it's bad, but different careers and paths lead to different things. Some lead to fame, some fortune, some education and career. They only get millions from those advertisers because so many people are tuned in. If a doctor or lawyer had a huge fan base, they would receive a lot of money in sponsors and funding because of their supportive fans bringing them media attention. Nearly everyone with a large fan base earns a lot of money, whilst doctors, engineers and lawyers don't. You might find that doctors and lawyers don't want the money, only to do their job well and help people. It's not always about the money.
    The world is very unfair so don't dwell on it and make life the way you want it to be.
