Causes of lack of confidence and inferiority complexes




   What causes lack of confidence?  The following are at least 
   some of the causes: 

     - personal standards that are set too high; expecting too 
         much of yourself 

     - not accepting yourself as you are, not admitting to your 
         inabilities and weaknesses.  Denying your inabilities. 

     - a negative outlook on yourself in which your attention is 
         always on your weak points.  Your focus is always on 
         them, you dwell on them, and you never see your strong 
         points. 

     - a habit of always setting difficult tasks for yourself, one 
         right after another, never giving yourself a chance to 
         rest, relax and enjoy life.  Being too hard on yourself, 
         making life too hard. 

     - repeated failures in attempts to do one or more things.

     - incidents in the past in which you have been embarrassed or 
         humiliated by an inability or weakness
