From ancient times, Thais and Chinese, in a similar way, have been taught to be modest. This is a good characteristic, because modest people are generally well-liked. However, there are those people who are both modest in their deeds, and also in their hearts. Unfortunately, such individuals are inclined to feel inferior, and unable to compare themselves to others, or be able to compete. As a result, their potential is diminished, and their future tends to be relatively unprosperous, despite having real capabilities. This is because, within their subconscious mind, they possess negativity towards themselves.
