I just started about a month ago, and I think I have a problem where my hands are too small to do a lot of chords. My hands are definitely a lot smaller than the average male, so it looks like I'm at a big disadvantage. Just to put it in perspective, the guy in this picture can reach from the first fret to the seventh, and I can only reach from the first fret to the fourth.

Just keep persisting and you'll get there. There are loads of youtube videos of child prodigies playing great guitar and you can bet they have small hands. Don't give up!
The angle his arms are at are helping him reach a little further, I bet you don't play like that.
