Chuck Out The Blame For Ignorance Of People In Close Proximity

A feeling that you are not good enough in contrast to people around you can make you suffer from inferiority complex. Inferiority actually comes from thought that a person does not have positive traits in comparison to people they look up. Worst part is that you feel dejected and helpless whenever you appear in public and see other succeeding in their professional as well as personal life. Situation becomes more deteriorating when you continue to fight back with apparent issues, get no desired upshot and thus strive to procrastinate. To make an allowance for this, you must boost up your self-esteem immediately to overcome inferiority complex.

Success And Inferiority

An attempt to accomplish success or gain superiority will certainly help you achieve desired goals of your life. On the other hand, your achievements act as shell to cover your inferiority complex instead of helping you prevail over it. Overcoming inferiority can never be accomplished by acquiring a reputed position, having authority or by collecting funds, social approval and other attempts. Moreover, self-worth achieved through materialistic approach can result in loss of self-esteem the moment you lose those achievements. Same thing is applicable for avowals that people bring into practice to help them throw out inferiority complex. Main problem associated with avowal is that it make people live with this inferiority complex for entire life.

How To Deal With Inferiority Complex?

It is very imperative for a person to determine root cause of inferiority to get over it rapidly. For this, try to evoke your childhood memories and some bad experiences that made you stick to this humiliating situation. In addition to this, you can tag along some decisive ways to overcome this situation.

Try to change your mentality by changing negative thoughts- Negative thoughts or mentality will always bring deteriorating situations to your way. These thoughts thwart positive aspects to strike your mind thereby making situation more intricate. Try to invigorate and rejuvenate your mind with positive energy.

Do not carry the guilt of ignorance- Always remember that you cannot be worthless simply because someone do not appreciate you or call you ugly. It is very imperative for people running away from inferiority complex to eradicate the thought that they are of no value. Keep on replicating those thoughts that trouble you until they become unconscious in your mind and do not find enough space to return.

Fix your self-worth in mind- In most of the cases, people feel inferior simply because they are affected by their own self-image. Self-image reflects the personality of person and sometimes, these images change forever due to inferiority complex. You can go for CBT or “Cognitive Behaviour Therapy” to triumph over inferiority complex.  This is an effective and tested approach for people willing to avoid their inferior feeling.

Remove all the bad labels– Another impressive way is to remove all the labels that you acquired in your school days and remind you of that substandard feeling. Such labels actually portray a bad trait of yours and bring flaws. By removing these labels, a person can breathe fresh air and enliven up with new strength.

Fill in your mind with new beliefs- Increase your self-esteem and confidence to overwhelm mediocre complex. If you will successfully manage to gain self-esteem, then inferiority complex will automatically leave.

Avoid procrastination-One of the common indications of Inferiority complex is procrastination. If you continue to postpone important work and never finish off it on time, then you might be having an inferiority complex. This is because you do not have enough potency and confidence to complete the work successfully on time and give productive upshots.

Make Some New Friends -Most of the people suffering from inferiority complex find it difficult to make new friends. However, new friends can help you recover and get over this mentality.  Endeavour to get the best possible outcome whenever you approach a stranger and try to impress that person with your confidence and self-belief.

How CBT Can Help You Live Down Inferiority Complex?

Stuffs that you hear about meditation and visualisation is probably the best way to hype up your self-esteem and go beyond inferiority complex. Overcoming a substandard feel requires a pragmatic or scientific approach. One of the leading scientific approaches is CBT or “Cognitive Behavioural Training”, which is not a wonder but a psychological system that changes your mentality and inferiority complex. For this, you must equip yourself with right tools, lots of determination and positive strength. It feels quite overwhelming to acclimatize to the fact that numbers of people have been benefitted by this practice. Inferiority complex is nothing but a feeling or mentality of people that they are incapable to accomplish their goals and not good-looking to face people. This feeling in itself brings mediocre thoughts and open up ways for misconception, fallacy and inferiority complex. However, it entirely depends on a person how to dispose of these irrational ideas and break reinforcing chain of bad sensation.

    A good article on how to deal with inferiority complex. Inferiority arises when you compare with others. Added to that, the lack of self confidence and stage fear make it more difficult to deal with. This problem of inferiority arises when you constantly fail in your assignments, whenever your parents and friends make discouraging comments like ” you are not fit for anything” or “your friends and class mates are more better than you”, etc. and many more reasons. So, first thing you should do is to stop comparing yourself with others. Then, you develop some boldness. Let others say what they say. ignore their comments. Try to understand the weaknesses in you and their reasons. Slowly develop over coming those weaknesses one by one. One more thing is you should not get bewildered at failures. You must see some positive aspects in your failures. Every failure is a step to your success. So go on making effort again and again.

    A very good post. Very useful tips to over come inferiority complex. Basically this complex arises out of stage fear and lack of confidence. This may be due to recurring failures. When a person fails in some attempt, he gets discouraged. When discouraged, he lacks inspiration to make another attempt because of the fear of failing again. He is afraid of the others surrounding him who may comment with disrespect for him. In such circumstances, he needs people who can boost his spirit. He needs the support of encouraging words building some confidence in him. Parents, siblings and friends can give support in such circumstances as they are closely related to him. But, more often, the problem is that they may not be having any hint of his problem as the victim keeps himself aloof from them and don’t let them know his problem. Even in such circumstances, they should come to know that he is having some problem due to which he is keeping aloof from them. So, that way, they can be able to know about his having problem and try to make him more inter-active with them by giving company to him and try to solve his problem.
