If you’re not feeling powerful in your own life; power over your thoughts, emotions, and actions, every endeavor or obstacle you encounter will be much more difficult to surmount. Too many use their failures as a reminder of their mistakes, associating with the negative, rather than focusing on the positive; something was gained from the experience and you are that much closer to your goal, be it enlightenment or abundant finanancial wealth.
