Earned Confidence - Sheila Nevins MAKERS Moment
Sheila Nevins on not having to work for all she has and not being given anything.
- I was always confident. I think it's 'cause I had no self esteem and I had to work so hard at feeling good about myself that I engaged in a certain kind of confidence that I felt that I had earned. I didn't feel I was given anything and therefore I was confident because anything I had I had earned. Generationally, when I look at today and my own child and young men his age I see that they have been nurtured on high self esteem. I came up with, "You could've done it better." They came up with, "That's really good what you did, "that's really fine." Which is good, I guess. You know, you feel good about yourself. But then again if you feel too good about yourself then you don't push. Somewhere between the two is the answer.
