I am not so sure that an egocentric childhood–when combined with a strong will–is a bad beginning for one whom life has destined for a career. One at least does not start out in life with an inferiority complex, than which surely nothing can be more hampering. All careers are beset with disappointments, knock-down blows, failures, the persistent enmity of mean vestigial minds. To say nothing of one’s own mistakes. But if one has that inner conviction, however illogical it may appear at the time, that one must succeed (i.e. have one’s own way), that the reverse is unthinkable, pertinacity is as natural as confidence and the battle is half won.
