Have you ever asked yourself why is it that uncommon people are everywhere in this world? You know, I was reading a book titled - Psycho Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz and I learnt something fascinating from the book.
Abraham Lincoln once made a statement that goes like this – “God must have loved the common people because he made so many of them.” When I firstly heard that statement I thought Abraham Lincoln was right but little did I realized that he was wrong because Maxwell Maltz explained why that statement was wrong.
Assuming Abraham Lincoln said something like – “God must have loved the uncommon people because he made so many of them,” he would have been right because the truth of the matter is that we don’t have common people, every person you meet is unique in one way or the other. Take a look at yourself, there’s no body in this world quite like you and makes you uncommon.
WHY IS IT THAT MOST PEOPLE HAVE LIMITED VIEW OF THEMSELVES?
I’m going to be upfront with you guys because I want you to know that I’m a real person just like you and I don’t want to hide behind my computer trying to be the person I’m not. If there’s one thing I’ve been struggling with in my life is this – Inferiority complex because I have a limited view of myself and its all because I’m use to measure my weakness with other peoples’ strength, I use to measure my failures with other peoples’ successes and I measure my standard with others standards and that’s where the problem comes in.
God made every man in his own image and I believe that God’s products are of top quality. A master paint won’t paint rubbish and if a master painter wont paint rubbish, how much more good will God’s product be?

Now, I have learned that the fact that an athlete can run more faster than myself should not make me feel inferior because I’m sure that athlete will not be able to build the kind of website I can build nor is he going to able to type 60 to 65 words per minute.
Maxwell Maltz said:
"You’re not inferior"
"You’re not superior"
"You’re are You."
And there’s nobody else like you in the whole wide world.
You’re unique, don’t compare yourself with other people.
I love to hear your thoughts on this kind of stuff and please don’t forget to share this post with your friends and family because this might just brighten someone else day.
