Let’s hear from one of the greatest minds the world has ever produced, the legendary Oprah Winfrey. In the scope of everything Oprah has done, what she’s accomplished, where she’s been, how she’s failed and how she’s succeeded, she presents a really simple message that is fundamental to her process.
"The moment you figure out what you are supposed to be doing, the sooner you are able to go about the business of doing that. The way through the challenge is to get still and ask yourself what is the next right move. Not think about all of the.. What is the next right move? And then from that space, make the next right move, and the next right move. And not to be overwhelmed by it, because you know your life is bigger than one moment. You know you are not defined by what somebody says is a failure for you, because failure is just there to point you in a different direction".
Isn’t that fascinating? Even the woman, who has done more than all of us combined, goes back to the question, “What can I do right now in this moment?”. It’s so natural to get caught up in the long tail strategy, forecasting projections, of whatever we’re working on. Fundamentally, it’s about decision making and trusting that your own internal guiding system knows what to do. If you continue making the next right move, you’ll find yourself exactly where you’re meant to be.
