Three Ways Jealousy Can Hurt You (and how you can prevent them)

The biggest stress that most people have is not being good enough.Not good enough as a person, an employee, a parent or child. If we all had equal expertise in all areas of life, the world would run like a well-oiled machine. Everyone would be competent and average. It would also be incredibly boring. In nature, there are trees that grow best in tropical climates, fruits and berries that taste sweetest when they ripen following a cold, snowy winter.

Holding On to Your Power

These days, life can feel out of control. You may feel like a puppet of the Universe, unable to do anything to change your life for the better. Many feel this way and while some will work through their issues, others will seek to empower themselves by disempowering others.  In reality, no one can take your power. But they can convinced you to give it away.  How do they do this? By making you want to give it away.  The Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz did this quite expertly with the apple tree spirits.
