“ Why do we find it so hard to believe that our assumption of inferiority is only a prejudice”? Our traditional educational pattern stresses a negative value: hardly anyone is good enough as he is. We perpetuate this pernicious practice under the fallacious assumption that growth and improvement demand dissatisfaction wit oneself. Admittedly, in some few cases the drive for self-evaluation may simulate progress. But in all cases this negative urge is unnecessary, and in many cases highly detrimental.

Anyone who is sure of himself and satisfied with his abilities can do better than someone who must constantly struggle to prove his worth. It is the feeling of adequacy, rather than of inadequacy, that leads to successful endeavor.”
