Motivation Monday: Oprah's Advice to Her Younger Self
Media Credit: CBS News "This Morning"
As entrepreneurs and professionals, it is easy to become blind-sighted by our past making us complacent and unsure of what to do next. Do you let your failures and mistakes become obstacles? Or do you accept them as lessons for improvement? What would you say to your younger self if you had the chance? Thinking about this question asks us to reflect on the success and mistakes we have made and realize the impact it has made in our lives. It shows us just how far we have come. As Oprah says, “Relax. It’s going be okay.” Remember we alone hold the pen to write the script we live out each day.
Self-care and self-love is the foundation for accomplishing any goal. If you do not take care of yourself, how can you invest in your business or target if you are drained? Sometimes, what we need to do is be still and relax. When we take the time to replenish ourselves, things become clear, and we are ready to make our next move. Just keep progressing, even if your progression is in baby steps. One day, you will look back, as Oprah has done and see all of the great things you have done.
