Believe in yourself! Trust in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable self-esteem in your own powers you cannot neither be happy nor successful. But without sound confidence in one self success is not guaranteed.
A sense of belittling and inadequacy interferes with the attainment of your hopes, but self confidence leads to realization and successful achievement.
It is sad to realize the number of pathetic people who are hampered and made miserable by the disease widely known as inferiority complex.
But you need not to suffer from this trouble. When you take the appropriate steps, it can be overcome. You can plant and develop creative Faith in your personality; that which is justified.
As man we must challenge the maladies of our emotional life as a physician probes to find something wrong physically. This cannot be achieved immediately, it requires treatment to reach a final solution. To pull you through this emotional problem I will give you a formula that will work if you put it into use.
Just repeat the words over and over again as you walk down the street , and after you get into bed.
1. “I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me ” (Philippians 4:13) , if it’s hard for you to get familiar with, write it on a cardboard.
To counter and overcome inferiority complex by scientific counseling and by application of religious faith,
2. Mix with people of high self-esteem to build your low self esteem and help you fight that disease of inferiority complex.
You should try and walk with older people for that will in a way develop your courage unlike walking with your age mates.
I can perhaps illustrate the manner in which many youngsters acquire an inferiority complex through the use of a personal references. As a small boy I was painfully thin. I had a lot of energy. Was on track team, was healthy and hard as nails but thin. And that bothered me a lot because I didn’t want to be called “skinny”. I wanted to be called “fat.” I did everything to get fat. I drank cold liver oil, consumed vast numbers of milk shakes, ate lots of chocolate sundaes with whipped cream and nuts, cakes innumerable, but they did not affect me in the slightest. I stayed thin and lay awake nights thinking and agonizing about it. I kept on trying to get heavy until I was about thirty, when all of a sudden I did get heavy? I bulged at the seams.
Then I became self conscious because I was so fat, and finally had to take off forty pounds with equal agony to get myself down to respectable size.
In the second place (to conclude this personal analysis which was gave only because it perhaps help others by showing how this malady works), .
Lastly believe fully in yourself and abilities never be afraid of anything develop a strong self-esteem.
