So many people are busy trying to be somebody else,

and that is what accounts for their frustration There is within every man a bit of latent creativity seeking to break forth, and it is often blocked because we are busy trying to be somebody else. So this is the first way to overcome an inferiority complex — accept yourself. That means accept your looks. It means accept your limitations in every area. It means what it says “Accept your actual self.” And where the conflict really comes is that individuals find a sort of impassable gulf between their actual selves and their desired selves And that is when an inferiority complex breaks out in morbid proportions – when individuals come to see that there is such a tremendous gap between their actual selves and their desired selves. And the thing that every individual should pray to the Almighty God for is to give them that sense of acceptance of the actual self with all limitations and with all of the endowments that come as the result of our being born in this world. –Overcoming an Inferiority Complex, MLK
