This Words of Wisdom video comes from none other than the legendary Oprah Winfrey!
I see quite a few people online who have businesses, music, or whatever that still get upset when people they know don’t support you. This clip from Oprah is very appropriate to kindly but honestly remind you that NOBODY OWES YOU ANYTHING. “If you’re sitting around waiting on somebody to save you, to fix you, to even help you, you are wasting your time,” Oprah boldly stated in the clip. You have to do the work on yourself for yourself often BY YOURSELF.
It’s really easy to point the finger at other people for your circumstances. It’s easy to get mad at people for not supporting you or helping you when you thought they should’ve. I know because I’ve done it. But, after a while, I had to get honest with myself. Why was I expecting other people to automatically help me with MY life and issues? What was is that I needed to be doing myself to get better? Was I actually doing those things? I had to get to a stronger level of personal accountability, and take full responsibility for my own life!
The same goes for each of you. Sure, it’s nice for people to help you and you should show appreciation for that. But never automatically expect things from anyone, or get mad at other people for not helping you. It is what it is. You do what YOU have to do, and everything else will fall into place.
