Many times Mariah Carey feels that she does not have "enough" to make her feel secure, regardless of how much (money, insurance, etc.) she has!
She is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with her duty, her public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Mariah Carey understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and she is capable of much self-discipline and patience once she sets her sights on a goal.
