People are usually proud of their achievements. However, anyone who has an inferiority complex believes that they did succeed but that they could do better. It is really too bad. If they had a huge success they should be proud. Instead they put themselves down, and even say to others that they could have made greater strides. Sometimes it is because they feel so inferior that they need the accolades. Other times they become arrogant and expect to be praised as the best that there is. The inferior person needs the compliments to build up their ego. On the other hand, the arrogant person not only expects the high praise but if they do not receive the accolades they are seeking, they become rude. Their arrogance is often portrayed towards others and they are hurtful and obnoxious. They are almost like Sheldon on “Big Bang” who truly believes he is the smartest person within their group, the university and just about everywhere else. Achievements should be accepted graciously. If a person believes in themselves they appreciate the high praise but they already know that they were successful. One of the goals of parents of children is to always let them know they are doing a good job. It takes time for them to build their confidence. They are often unsure and the small praises here and there help them to develop in a positive manner. The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
