They say that with the right mindset, no achievement is too big to consider. Well, that is very true. And the only unfortunate part of it is, the reverse is true as well, that with your own mind working against you, every task you accomplish seems petty. Inferiority complex is no less than a dire disease which can ruin your life forever. An inherent inferiority complex refers to one which makes you think all of your peers surrounding you are in some way better than you, and you will never be good enough for a particular thing. This can have various underlying reasons, most of which are not your fault and therefore are all the more painful. But fear not! That is the sole reason we here have compiled a list for you guiding how you can fight this creeping complex and have the better life you deserve to!
1. Positive Self Talk
We’re here to realise the power of self, how much we can do to help every situation, beyond our belief. So unsurprisingly, our list starts with what we can do to help our inferiority complex. We can talk, talk, talk ourselves out of it, we can talk ourselves good into feeling better, we can emerge successful and happy at the end. Positive self talk can start from the moment we wake up to the moment we go to sleep, telling ourselves how we did well at work, how we saved a relationship, how we have amazing dressing sense…the list can go on and on. And by the end of a period, we will definitely find we have helped our situation a bit. So, the next time you are feeling down in the dumps, ladies and gentlemen, I ask you all to keep talking well to yourself.
2. Quitting Comparing
Comparison mostly happens without seeing the whole picture, and at a glance, everyone can seem either worse or better than you. It is misleading, and it can be dangerous to hinge your peace of mind on facets of other peoples’ existences. We just saw in the previous point, how our self can provide answers to everything – so why drag anyone else into this? Peace!
God has everything under control. He can provide all the answers if you ask him earnestly enough. He can show you why one person was created one way and another person differently. He can show you why you look, work, think the way you do, why somebody else does it differently, how they weren’t made to be compared in the and how the two are neither better nor worse compared to each other, and first place. Praying to God can take you right away from your inferiority complex, and fast. It is highly recommended that all of you do it for the best results.
4. Taking up a new hobby
You know how you can show yourself you are better than the thing you thought you weren’t good enough to get? By proving how you are unexpectedly good at some other stuff! Go ahead, go bungee jumping, or take violin lessons. Who knows, this time of life may actually emerge to be one of the brightest patches for you!
Writing is a measure that has been used throughout history for self betterment. And nowadays, writing is so much easier – with offline journals and online blogs, feedback is also always at hand. You can discover your own thought processes through it, and figure out where exactly you went wrong, so you can correct it the next time round. And there’s no saying that you won’t create great literature in the process!
Feeling inferior to a part of your life is a very damaging thing to feel, and there can be consequences which increase that feeling and make life harder. Some sure-fire ways are getting otherwise engaged and communicating your thoughts to feel better. If they don’t work, seeking out professional help is always the right way to go. Remember, close ones are and will always be there for you. Don’t hesitate to seek help and be happy!
Time and tide wait for none! Time is momentary and fleeting. Be it for the best or the worst of situations, time knows no wait, no break, and no respite. The clock keeps on ticking and those who realize the truth on time, are the ones who shine with bright colors. It’s the procrastination that always robs our time. The sensible course for a man of action is to utilize his each and every moment. Lazy people fritter away their energy and while away their time.
To achieve the desired goals, one has to work hard every minute to utilize the available time to its fullest potential. Everything takes time to happen, then again, deciding the time you want to invest in doing something is up to you. Time management is an art everyone wants to master, but while trying to manage our time, we fail because of certain mistakes we tend to make. Below, we have enlisted some of these mistakes you should avoid to manage time effectively.
1. Postponing Things
Timely action is the key to success. Time once gone cannot be recalled. Neglect in small things may spoil the labor of years. Thus, the most effectual motto of life should be, do it at the instant moment. Do not hold your work till the next day which can be very easily done today. Delay is the theft of time. Those, who have the practice of delaying matters, look back on life with regret. It is always better to sort out problems as they sprout, before allowing it them to spread their roots.
2. Trying to Save Time in Everything You Do
Now, a single day consists of only 24 hours and there is a lot more amount of work to do. And some tasks might require more efforts and focus, therefore, you should not shy away from shedding a few extra hours for it. And while saving time is concerned, you can be quicker in completing a task which does not require much thinking. This way, not only will you be able to manage your time like a pro, but also, your productivity will not be compromised a bit!
3. Not Following the To-Do List
It is very crucial to stick to the to-do list you prepared in the morning. Not sticking to it can lead to an under-productive day. While you work, the first thing which you should do is to handle your list which will contain the bullets of your work which needs to be completed. Otherwise it’s a very common tendency, that while working, sometimes we have a propensity to skip important things. This makes us regret later. While preparing the list, always prioritize your work keeping in mind the urgency of the work using some symbols, so that you can differentiate which work is to be done first. This will offer a hand to you in not forgetting your important works and by completing all your work in time you will be proficient in living a happy and a successful life.
4. Getting Distracted
It is always suggested to people, to take advantage of good circumstances. You should make good use of our favorable time and most of an opportunity while you hold a chance. And while doing that, it is very important to stay focused. Opportunities might not approach very often; thus, it becomes obligatory that we make ourselves certain about the fact that we take complete benefit of it, before the chance glides away. Therefore, be convince while working, that you are away from all breeds of distractions, be it of any kind, like mobile, internet, facebook, someone calling you or anything else. If you are away from distractions you will be able to perform in a better way.
Make it a point to complete the work in hand before switching on to another. It is okay to multitask, but not every time, as it could easily mess things up. This will lead up in the ill performance of all the scheduled tasks. Also, make it a trend to take break of 5 to 10 minutes, after finishing one work and before starting off with the other one. This gap will let you construct your concentration again and gear you up for the next task. Hence, your efforts will execute in the correct direction and the things will happen in time.
