Oprah Winfrey had some very valuable advice for people in their 20’s to deal with the anxiety of finding where and what your place is in the world. I think that a lot of us can relate to the fact that there is an immense pressure to find our purpose in life. We are constantly thinking about what our big picture is and how to get there. Oprah commented on how to deal with this way of thinking.
“The way through the challenge is to get still and ask yourself, ‘What is the next right move?’ Not think about, ‘Ooh, I got all of this to figure out.’ What is the next right move? And then from that space, make the next right move and the next right move … then you won’t be overwhelmed by it, because you know your life is bigger than that one moment.” – Oprah Winfrey
Melanie Curtin, for INC.com said,
“Part of emotional intelligence is knowing how to get out of your own way (which often entails getting out of your own head). Yes, there’s a time and place for reflection, but there’s also a time and place to stop reflecting and just take an action (the next move).”
This is important to remember in times of high stress and anxiety. Just ask yourself if what you are doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow. Make positive, productive decisions throughout the day. Each step you take will ultimately play into the big picture.
Commvergence is your next right move.
