Developing self-love and self-acceptance regardless of his "performance" is an important task for Steven.
His fears revolve around money and material security, and Steven Spielberg works very hard to ensure that his assets are solid. He may be very conservative, even stingy, with his money because he is afraid there will not be enough. He may turn this fear around and become very shrewd about investments and financial matters.
