Extraordinary Insights: You've got to have confidence and believe in yourself. This is something I learned from my mother who, as I was growing up, constantly said: "Love yourself." I didn't know what she meant then, but now I do. She meant having confidence in yourself and that does not mean entitlement. A lot of young people today feel entitled, but it's a different thing to feel confident.
