Comparing yourself to others is a natural human behaviour. You can’t avoid it. It’s hard wired within us. We can’t help comparing ourselves to others; our wealth, our looks, where we live, how “successful” we are, how much “fun” we have. Stop it!
Here are few ways in which you can stop feeling inferior starting now :
- Stop comparing – Try to remember that you are on a par with everyone else. You may be thinking that’s easier said than done after all, it’s natural to feel a little daunted by the prospect of treating people who are senior to you as equals. It’s actually not that difficult, but it does require mental preparation.
- Focus on the reality – Think forward to the next time you will be working or socialising with a group of people who are “senior” in some respect to you or people who are “better” than you in your eyes. Prepare in your mind to treat them differently to the way you used to. Be sure to psyche yourself up beforehand to do this.
- Switch your thinking – Whereas you used to treat these people according to your perception of their authority in relation to you, now you will treat each of them as an equal. You will do this for everyone, even the people who are more “senior” to you in terms of position. Don’t worry, this won’t be a problem as long as you’re polite and respectful at all times.
- See the results – You’ll me amazed at how this simple concept can transform your feelings of inferiority into a feeling of equality. You’ll also be pleasantly surprised at the more positive way people respond to you, even the more senior people. It’s likely their perception of your confidence levels and your self esteem will improve too.
