Q&A: Inferiority and Affairs - Lyrics

From time to time all of us have some
problems we'd like to talk over with someone.
By hearing the experiences of others.
Maybe some of you folks may find these
questions and answers useful in your life.
We meaning my wife Ruth Phil and I,
have discovered that the formulas I proposed actually
help people changed sorrow to joy and failure to success.
Ruth, what's the question today.
A question from a young man in Los Angeles.
I have a bad inferiority complex, how can I overcome it?
Well I like your question because I had one of those things myself.
And moreover a lot of people have.
The first thing to do is to learn the
source of your feeling of inadequacy.
Usually, it originates in childhood.
And results from the projection of parental fears.
or maybe from unconscious competition with a more
brilliant or seemingly brilliant brother or sister.
Confident counselling can usually locate this cause.
And then the self knowledge that you gain will stimulate a cure.
Then in the moment of dynamic decision,
reslant your mind to a picture of yourself as having overcome your
inferiority then start applying the
powerful and creative force of faith in yourself.
Believe in yourself, that's what you've got to do.
Here's a letter from a troubled listener in the midwest
How does one go about ending an affair
with a married man when he won't hear of it.
Dr.
Peale, I have lost my self respect and have no peace
of mind and I'm always afraid, I don't wanna be bad.
Please help me, Dr.
Peale.
Well of course the way to stop doing something that
you know to be bad is to want to stop enough to do it.
It appears to me that you haven't
really made up your mind that you wanna stop.
So you're caught in a miserable conflict and compromise.
You say you don't wanna be bad,
but how strong is your revulsion against evil?
When you develop a desire for goodness that is stronger than your
weakness, you will have enough sufficient moral
force to tell the man you are through and mean it.
It could be that you have some emotional illness.
