There are moments in all our lives when we feel below par and have brief moments of doubt. As a matter of fact, the late Dr. Maxwell Maltz has written, "At least ninety-five percent of the people in the world feel inferior." The reason so many people feel inferior about their own lives, looks, skills, and abilities is because we spend too much time comparing ourselves with heroes and heroines from the make-believe world of television.
Every teenage girl feels must rate at leaset a "10" or she will not be acceptable to her classmates.
Every teenage boy feels that he must be a combination of Tom Selleck and Joe Theismann rolled into one.
Every father feels that he must be a super success in business before he is acceptable as a father.
Our problem is that we make the mistake of comparing ourselves with other people. You are and you don't have to measure up to any other person. You are not inferior or superior to any human being. The creator has created each and every one of us with a touch of uniqueness and originality. You do not determine your success by comparing yourself to others, rather you determine your success by comparing your accomplishments to your capabilities. You are "number one" when you do the best you can with what you have every day.
I'd love to know what you think of this post:
