But I worked hard in academics and became good on it . I helped my friends in studies and gained their respect. In turn they helped me in sports.
So try to make friends. Always be polite with others. It happens many times that jealousy takes root in you from your complex . You eye their achievements with disgust and soon it will turn to envy.
You must not let this happen. Envy will only destroy you. Immediately remove such thoughts as these comes in your mind. Always try to be polite . Appreciate their talent and not just for showing.
Gaining confidence is also a great way to overcome inferiority complex. Public fearing has frightened even the greatest persons in history. Those who have overcome it has made history. Try to overcome this fear of public. Participate in drama or debates or recitations anything in which you get to go in stage or just in front of class . You may feel like a fool. But you are not . You may win nothing but you get the exposure that will build your confidence. More your confidence increase less your complex will become.
Also just dont compare yourself with others . You are a human being. Every human is unique . You have unique personality, unique talents ,.unique sms dna , unique soul. Unique soul. You are special in yourself. Look yourself with dignity . Dont run from shortcomings. Accept them as you accept your strengths. Be yourself.
Finally, from above words it feels like inferiority complex is a curse on humanity. But every thing has a negative as well as a positive side. It is your vote that matters. You can view your complex as a challenge . Why you just accept that you sucks in something . Use your complex to motivate you to challenge your weaknesses. Like I was never good in any sports; . But I refuse to accept it . I played every sport with my friends. I tripped 10s of times . I was blamed when our team loses . But I never gave up. I kept trying. Over time I improved .I may not become some athlete but I improved my fitness and reflexes. Even this can take out your hidden talents. Your complex can be your greatest demotivater or your greatest inspiration.
