The most important thing is that you should keep on evolving and trying. When you try relentlessly your inferiority complex becomes a thing of past. You will soon scale new heights of success.
Others do not have what are you are blessed with. You can never have what others are blessed with. Everyone in this world lacks something. There is not a single person who can say he has everything he had asked for.
