My mother would always say, 'Don't show off too much, other people being envious will ensure you don't prosper'. I know rishis in Treta Yuga have gotten into spats with other individuals and cursed misfortune upon people! (An example being Karna).
Are there scriptural mentions where people just being envious of other people's accomplishments completely destroyed their life?
