You Must Beware Of Inferiority Complex

Mathew 10:29-31

 Inferiority feelings are enemies that hinder in creativity. You are made by God to be creative and anything that hinders in that creative process is an enemy. Some foolishly mistake inferiority with humility. A grave mistake, for inferiority is an enemy of creativity while humility is the source of creativity. No one around you is the reason why you are where you are. You are not like others and as such, there is no basis for comparison. Therefore, you must beware of inferiority complex because it is  one of the most stagnating and crushing conditions of the human personality.

An inferiority complex consists of feelings of not measuring up to standards, a doubt and uncertainty about oneself, and a lack of self esteem. It is often subconscious and is thought to drive afflicted individuals to overcompensate, resulting either in spectacular achievement or extremely asocial behavior. Looking at yourself in the light of others should lead neither to inferiority or to boasting, but to humble cooperation The humble person has a sane estimate of himself and a sane estimate of others. The humble person has a sane estimate of himself and a sane estimate of others. He never considers himself worthless and seldom considers others as geniuses. Rather, he sincerely appreciates others for their person and for their abilities, and truly accepts himself as having real worth.  He knows that his abilities and the abilities of others are all God given. There is no room either for boasting or for despair, but only for joyous cooperation with God and with others as you work together creatively to carry out God’s purposes. Never admit, even to yourself, that you are inferior. For one to say that he is inferior is to tell a lie. God taught Peter not to see himself as inferior and he would teach us today to call no man common or unclean. However, inferiority complex distorts ones personality and plunges it into the abyss of inner conflicts. And so one of the first things that you must do to integrate yourself and to be sure that your personalities are integrated is to seek to overcome a feeling of inferiority. Because what makes you unique is within you dig it out. Focus on it build around it and make the most of it.
