People who matter can see what matters.

Do you get what I'm saying?
Believe in yourself.
We all feel like we have something to prove to other people. But we're the only one that needs convincing.

Humility creates the self-confidence we need to succeed.
"Self-confidence does not come from seeing oneself as strong, without flaws, or above making mistakes.
