I read a quote on Amitabh Bachhan’s blog:
“You cannot insult me with inferiority unless I allow you to. Why must I feel inferior to anyone? Unless I succumb to the fact that I am inferior, you will not be able to insult me.”
Wonderful thought - makes you feel strong and evokes self esteem in a big way.
There is nothing wrong in taking pride in your work if you know that your skills can compete globally. Having respect for whatever we do for living is necessary as without it attitude cannot be developed. This quote provoked my innermost feelings and made me realise that we are indeed no less than any other unless we ourselves think that we are. It puts back your confidence on you by making you believe that we must work towards making ourselves so accomplished that no other can stand before us with superiority. If you are weak and less competent and admit that you are, then others will make you feel inferior, but if we are tough, capable and believe that we are, then we also believe that we are not inferior to anyone.
Giving our consent weakens us. So make yourselves resolute, determined and conscious of values that you follow in life. Start saying ‘I can’, instead of ‘I will try’. There should be absolutely no room for doubt and uncertainty.
