When discussing the subject of superiority it can bring up a lot of sour faces. I’d compare the reaction of superiority to that of a person eating sour-patch kids. Most people prefer not to talk about being better or superior over everyone else at a particular trade, art, or skill.
However with that said, it is something that exists within us all, shown through our ego.
With an overly exhaustive ego, some people can be difficult to be around, simply because it feels like they’re sucking all the air out of the room of a habitable place. When this occurs it usually leaves a feeling of negativity or negative feedback from other people who sense that a person it overly zealous of their superiority.
It’s for this very reason that people get caught astray since they allow their ego to fully control them with too strong of a grip. In order to reach peace and develop stronger relationships with humankind and people of all race, color, religion, creed, and sex it requires a more unified attitude of acceptance and less resistance.
All throughout my life and in competitive sports and the world of media entertainment their have been a host of people who fight and gamble away their lives for the need to be superior. If you dive deep into entertainment, there are Hollywood actors, actresses, models, athletes, directors, singers, MC’s and all sorts of people who battle in the aesthetic world of individuality.
The beautiful thing is that the world is art, and we are all our own composers and directors of our world and surroundings. So as long as we take the proper ethical steps of not throwing the negative label of inferiority at other people it makes the world, much more connected.
When you let go of the need to be right in every argument and the need to be the most superior male or female in your area, you start to develop a more universal relationship with everyone that you encounter and you begin to feel more in tune with the nature of your surroundings.
If you emphasize your entire existence on being superior you begin to attract certain people who think that your a role model for being better and superior. However with that said, once you begin to free yourself from being superior and you no longer allow other people to feel inferior or below you in their abilities and talents, it leads to stronger attraction of kindness, love, abundance, creativity, and harmony.
When you truly improve yourself, you show yourself through improving the world around you, and in essence other people in your environment.
By getting rid of your superiority-complex you begin to become less judgmental, and become more conscious of your surrounding as well as the traits of other people.
“The deeper the self-realization of a man, the more he influences the whole universe by his subtle spiritual vibrations, and the less he himself is affected by the phenomenal flux.” -Dr. Wayne Dyer
Leaving the superiority-complex takes time and dedication, however as with any objective it can be done. The greater the effort you focus on self-realization and the more time you spend leaving your ego behind, ultimately the more fulfilled you begin to feel inside.
You can be great, since you were born with greatness, but you cannot be great without mentors and other leaders before you.
You can be a good person and display your potential and show it to the world, but it may take time before the right discoveries are made.
You can fly, but you must first learn the art.
You can dream a thousand dreams, but you must live them and share them with the world through your creativity.
Once you leave superiority, you begin to reach towards infinity. When you reach for infinity, you begin to contemplate what is possible.
What you have within you, shines greater than any gleaming jewel undug from the earth.
When you close the door on your ego, you begin to really view life as a much bigger picture with boundaries that stretch towards infinity.
As Dr. Wayne Dyer boldly states, “Ego and genius are mutually conclusive. Genius is a function of surrendering to the source or reconnecting to it so dramatically that one’s ego is substantially minimized (Dyer 233).”
How will you get what you want, and what do you really want? Whatever it is it won’t be as fulfilling until you release the need to be superior.
