11 Ways to Overcome Inferiority Complex

Knowledge is power. But when you find out who you really are and the capability that you have within yourself, you can skyrocket that power.

For most of us, we had well-meaning parents who wanted the best for us, but who were misguided as to who you really were. Instead of seeing you as an amazing, powerful, spiritual being baby “you” who was way more connected to source energy than they were, they saw a helpless baby who had to be taught how scary and fearful the world really was.

We can’t fault our parents really. What happened to us happened, end of story. But the problem is that most of us have been programmed to believe that we aren’t good enough – not smart enough – not whatever enough – in one word, inferior. And that programming can affect our lives for an entire life-time.

What can you do in order to overcome any inferiority complex you may have?

There are eleven ways. Let’s cover them.

11 Ways to Overcome Inferiority Complex

11 Ways to Overcome Inferiority Complex

1. Meditate

Meditation is one of the best ways to feel better about yourself because it helps to raise your vibration, how you feel. But also, most of us have around 60,000 thoughts per day and most of them are negative. So meditation really helps to stop the negative thoughts about yourself. Not only that, but when you get really good at meditation, you will start to receive messages from your inner-being. When you start to receive messages, then you will start to gain even more confidence in yourself, thus keeping the inferiority complex at bay…

2. Keep Your Word

This isn’t mainly about keeping your word to others which is important. It’s about keeping your word to yourself. When you tell yourself that you’re going to do something and then you don’t do it, you feel worse about yourself. You train your subconscious mind into believing that you don’t keep your word to yourself.

Instead, keep your word to yourself. For example, if you set the goal to workout three times a week, keep your word no matter what (for the most part).

When you keep your word to yourself, you build self-esteem. Plus, others will not intrude upon your time when they know that you are serious about sticking to whatever your goals are.

3. Read Books

Most successful, happy and wealthy people read a lot of books. They say that the average CEO reads one book A WEEK! That’s 52 books a year.

Education is a life-time process. It’s not just for attending school…

What kind of books are we talking about? In general, these are the self-help, personal development type of books but almost anything that stimulates your creative thinking and knowledge base is good.

Start at one book a month and then increase it from there.

4. Value Your Time

If you don’t value your time, other people will find a way to use your time to their own benefit. It’s human nature. But when you see someone who is busy with their life and who has a schedule of what they’re going to do for the next few weeks or months, then they are more likely to value your time too.

5. Study Your Career

Many of us think that once we get out of college or university, the learning phase is over and the earning phase begins. Although that is true for some careers, for the majority, it’s not. Learning is life-long. And if you are feeling inferior at work, it is probably because you gave up keeping up with your career.

This is especially true if your career involves technology.

If you don’t like to study your career of choice, it probably means that you’re in the wrong career.

No matter how much positive thinking you may do, if you don’t study and/or practice, you’re not going to perform well and that will naturally lead to feeling inferior.

6. Exercise

Exercise improves your mind, body and spirit and will help to keep those negative feelings of inferiority away.

Your body is your temple, and if you aren’t feeling good about yourself, it will show up in your outer-world.

Find something that you enjoy doing, whether it be working out, hiking, biking, swimming, or just getting outdoors. Do it at least three times a week and make sure you stick to it. That will raise your self-esteem.

7. Help Others

One of the most satisfying things you can do in order to feel better about yourself is to volunteer and helps those not as advantaged as you. Nowadays, it’s easy to find places where you can volunteer when you search online.

Helping others gives you a sense of well-being inside of yourself like nothing else does. But don’t over-do it.

8. Pamper Yourself

One of the best ways to raise your vibration and feel better about yourself is to pamper yourself. How? Go get a massage, go buy yourself something that you’ve been wanting, eat out, or buy the more expensive organic food and indulge.

Taking care of yourself also means getting plenty of sleep, drinking plenty of water, and taking time to renew yourself when you need it.

In other words, be good to yourself.

9. Learn to Say No

One of the difficult things for people with low self-esteem to do is to say “No” to others. But you have to. Otherwise, you’ll end up running yourself ragged for other people and then you won’t have anything to give to them anyway.

Learn to say no because that’s what healthy people do. Of course, you can say yes when it’s something that you really want to do. But in general, if you’re not feeling good about yourself, if you feel inferior to others, learning to say no can be both invigorating and empowering.

10. Value Yourself

You were born worthy and have nothing to prove. We live in a world that constantly judges and compares us to others. But that is the reason why most people do have inferiority complexes. The truth, however, is that you can’t be compared to anyone else. No one has gone through the exact same things as you. No one has had to deal with exactly what you’ve had to deal with.

And the truth is that intelligence is actually something that you can improve.

So, value yourself. And when you do, others will too…

11. Say Affirmations

And finally, saying positive affirmations about yourself is another great way to feel better. It may feel strange at first and you may not believe it. But that’s okay. That is why it’s best to say positive affirmations when you are already feeling pretty good. Whatever you repeat often enough will eventually be believed by your subconscious mind.


In summary, if you suffer from having an inferiority complex, there are many things that you can do in order to overcome it. But give yourself time. Realize that you are just as important as ANYONE else on planet earth. You and everyone else are actually source energy physical beings.

The purpose of life is to experience joy. Life is supposed to be fun! Don’t waste any time beating yourself up for things in your past, or worrying about the future.

Feel good on purpose for no good reason and you will master the universe and all of life.

You are in control. You have the power. You can overcome inferiority complex.

Now, go unleash it!
