What is meant by the saying "Nobody can make you feel inferior unless you let them?

To me, if somebody is more informed or better read or has an ability I don't have, that person is better then I am, at lest in that field. I don't know about any other field because I don't know that person well enough. But why do I  have to assume I am better than that person at something else when I am really unsure? I don't get it. Please enlighten me.

    A person who already feels inferior can be made to feel inferior. But a person who does not feel inferior cannot be made to feel inferior.

    It means words have a meaning if you let them.
