The power behind Earth’s minerals can be felt the minute you put a crystal in your hands or near your physical body. Crystals are the treasures of the earth. These stones are filled with energy to be used.
Many of us have goals, but sometimes find it difficult to get from where we are to where we want to be. People who pursue a goal, knowledge and experiences and who actively apply what they have learned, grow and achieve success throughout their lives.
Goal setting is a lifelong process. By setting long term as well as short term goals, learning keeps your enthusiasm and confidence strong. No matter which way you choose to learn – books, classrooms, mentors, the Internet, it is most important to amerce yourself in your goal pursuit and set any fear aside. Learning is often strongest when it comes through failures, setbacks and adversity.
