How would you feel whan you are '2nd best'?

Till my High School days, I was ranked 6th, 5th, 4th, 3rd and many times 1st; but I never got second place. That made me feel bad about being second. In my logic : In a game too, the second place holder is a looser one as he has been defeated by topper. Even third place holder would be happier as he survived in the battle of "top 3". So I never dreamt of being 2nd. But in the two years of Senior Secondary, I was always outwitted by a boy of my class. I tried my best to be the first one, and always scored better than him in class tests etc., but never could attain the first rank in exams :( that was really depressing!! How about you? How would you feel if you miss the 'best' title by a small margin?

Please don't think the first rank will be good and success in the future. There are so many people succeed in many profession. Albert Einstein for example...

That's right! But I wanted to know only.... about second position. I had never felt bad about being 3rd 4th etc but being 2nd is something different.... Thanks too for responding:)
