Are you ready for some tough love, boo?

Here’s a lesson I learned from the one-and-only Oprah Winfrey about comparing yourself to others that I want to pass along to you:

When Oprah was beginning to build up her business, there were others who came along and did something similar. This caused other people to start comparing her to them.

Oprah painted the perfect picture when she said that she put on blinders (much like you see horses wearing) so she could stay focused on what was ahead of her.

*It’s time to buck up, Buttercup and put on those blinders!*

>>Take your eyes off of the competition and focus on what’s in front of you: YOUR BUSINESS.<<

I like to think that a key factor in Oprah’s *wild* success is due to the fact that she didn’t compare herself to others.

She made the commitment to focus on herself and not allow her competition to impede, impinge, or dissuade her from doing what she was meant to do. 

This is what I want you to do, too, boo boo.

*We could all stand to be a little bit more like Oprah, don’t you think?!*

>>Don’t waste your time focusing on what other people say or do.<<

You can’t control them. You can only control you.

The fact is, someone could do the exact same thing that you do in the exact same way, but it won’t have the same effect on others merely because they aren’t you.

It’s time to stop comparing yourself to others.

>>The comparison game doesn’t have ANY winners, and whoever does the comparing loses.<<

Where you choose to focus is where your attention goes.

  • If you have an outward focus, you don’t have a proactive mindset, putting you a step behind your competition. 
  • By turning your focus inward, your time and energy will mirror that. 

I encourage you to look at yourself and focus on ways that you can show up and serve people well, in your own unique way.

*Don’t just take my word for it. If it worked for Oprah, it can work for you!*

I’ll wrap up this tough love session with some more wise words from Oprah:

“You don’t become what you want, you become what you believe.”

Believe that you are enough, no matter what anyone else says. I believe it, and you should, too.
