Whitney Houston’s Battle with Not Feeling Enough

Last week we covered how Caroline Flack was one of many lives sadly lost too soon. According to Kevin Costner, even Whitney Houston “the biggest pop star in the world wasn’t sure if she was good enough.” 

Kevin Costner revealed the root cause of Whitney Houston’s tragedy was not feeling good enough, which is something Marisa Peer is leading the charge to change with her global ‘I Am Enough’ movement. 

Find out how to stop the destruction of one of the biggest challenges we all face… not feeling enough. This article explores the lessons we can all learn to save lives… 

What Happened to Whitney Houston and her family?

Whitney Elizabeth Houston, August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012, went down in history as ‘the most awarded female artist of all time’ in the Guinness World Records. 

Whitney remains one of the best-selling music artists of all time with over 200 million records sold worldwide. She may have appeared to ‘have it all’ – fame, fortune, beauty and the adoration of millions of fans. However, despite all her successes, Kevin Costner shared that Whitney never felt enough, which had devastating consequences….

Whitney Houston’s tragic end of life was a destructive downward spiral. Sadly her daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, died in very similar circumstances just three years after Whitney and now Bobbi Kristina’s ex-finance, who was unofficially like an adopted son to Whitney, has also been found dead several years on. So what was the cause?

Their cause of death has been linked to drugs, heart failure, and drowning, but Kevin Costner revealed a deeper wound – the root cause – not feeling enough!

Breaking destructive behaviors

This tragic tale shows the devastating ripple effects of not feeling good enough, which impacts not just one person, but entire families, communities and societies for generations. 

However, the good news is that all this can change. Lives can be transformed and even saved with a free and simple movement led by globally renowned therapist, Marisa Peer. 

This article will explore the lessons we can all learn from this tragic tale and how to help anyone overcome the struggles of not feeling good enough…

Kevin Costner Remembers ‘The Sweet Miracle Of Whitney’

Kevin Costner and Whitney H

“Arguably, the biggest pop star in the world wasn’t sure if she was good enough. She didn’t think she looked right. There were a thousand things to her that seemed wrong” Kevin Costner revealed in his Eulogy to Whitney. 

“The Whitney I knew, despite her success and worldwide fame, still wondered am I good enough? Am I pretty enough? Will they like me? It was the burden that made her great and the part that caused her to stumble in the end.

Whitney if you can hear me now, I would tell you, you weren’t just good enough you were great…. You weren’t just pretty, you were as beautiful as a woman could be. People didn’t just like you, Whitney. They loved you….”

“Now, the only ones who sing your songs are young girls like you, who are dreaming of being you someday… To all those young girls who are dreaming that dream, but maybe thinking they aren’t good enough, I think Whitney would tell you: Guard your bodies and guard the precious miracle of your own life.”

“I Will Always Love You…”

The Bodyguard Whitney H

Whitney’s legacy lives on. The Bodyguard is still the most popular soundtrack ever made and “I Will Always Love You” is the best-selling single of all time by a female artist. 

Whitney’s powerful voice didn’t just sell out global tours, it could also be said to “blow the roof off” any so-called glass ceilings for female empowerment. Whitney’s phenomenal success on a global stage provided a role model for millions, she was a much-loved icon.

Whitney’s long list of awards and accolades is outstanding, which makes it even sadder that despite all her external successes, inside she simply didn’t believe that she was good enough.

The root cause of almost all issues – not feeling good enough.

Marisa Peer has been a successful celebrity therapist for over thirty years and believes that not feeling good enough is the root cause behind most people’s presenting problems. 

“When you don’t feel enough, no amount of fame or fortune is ever going to fill the void and emptiness you feel inside” stated Marisa Peer in her book entitled ‘I Am Enough’ Mark Your Mirror And Change Your Life.

That is why Marisa Peer is on a mission to use her vast experience to help everyone to know and feel that they are enough. She has taught millions of people to use the phrase I AM ENOUGH to transform their thinking and their life.

Marisa says: “When you truly understand that you are enough, you can live a life full of meaning and purpose, free of the feelings of inadequacy that so many people struggle with. I want people to not just ‘know’ that they are enough at an intellectual level, I want them to feel it, live it and embody it.”

Marisa’s accompanying on-line course helps people do exactly that, with practical techniques anyone can use to transform lives, including the following exercise…
