Everyone in this world is self centered, its just the radius that differs (I thinks that attitude of the person matters the most). Nobody is going to give it to you; you have to work for your dreams. There are no guarantees on success. In order to win big you have to take calculated risks. If you truly believe that you deserves success than your mind will automatically generate ways to achieve it (Value yourself).
