who feeds on your: Self esteem, Mental
Anguish, or Unhappiness.
• You can stop all these attacks on your SOUL by
Nasty people with nasty tactics (as per Jay Carter)
• Difficult people are a fact of life. How you
huddle them will determine your state of

• One common thing in all of these people is that
“whenever you try to work with them, the harder
they seem to work with and they try hard to
make your life more difficult, Miserable, and
unpleasant”
• At the worst, they can keep you from achieving
important goals at your work or home.
• It is up to you to bring the best behavior in these
people who are at their worst.
• Remember!!! You can not change anyone except
YOUSELF first “ become Bigger than Your
Situation” (Magic of Thinking Big)
• However they come to you, You don’t
have to be their victim. Instead:
