A man went to his psychiatrist for help with his inferiority complex. The doctor took one look at him and said, “There’s no problem here. You’ve correctly concluded the fact that you are an inferior person.”
That probably wasn’t very helpful or accurate advice. But it’s true that some people do feel inferior and develop negative thinking because they can’t see progress toward any meaningful goals. They don’t see themselves moving any closer to fulfilling God’s plan for their lives.
If you find yourself depressed because you are going nowhere and achieving nothing, learn how to make an achievable goal for yourself each day. Making a daily goal and achieving it, sets a pattern of positive accomplishment. It keeps you moving in the right direction.
Setting goals is a key part of good time management. Setting a God ordained, spiritually profitable goal and achieving it each day is an excellent way to create some positive motivation to redeem the time.
