Ways to live your best life!

Following on from last weeks blog post “How to feel confident all the time” I wanted to take a look at someone who is the definition of oporahconfident, Oprah Winfrey. The success Oprah enjoys today has come from many years of hard work, dedication and overcoming adversity. According to wikipedia “Winfrey was born into poverty in rural Mississippi to a teenage single mother and later raised in an inner-city Milwaukee neighborhood. She experienced considerable hardship during her childhood, saying she was raped at age nine and became pregnant at 14; her son died in infancy”. After overcoming these very painful personally challenges Oprah is now “ranked the richest African-American of the 20th century, the greatest black philanthropist in American history, and was for a time the world’s only black billionaire. She is also, according to some assessments, the most influential woman in the world.”

Who better to inspire us to live our best life, here are Oprah’s top tips:

  • What you put out comes back all the time, no matter what.
  • You define your own life. Don’t let other people write your script.
  • Whatever someone did to you in the past, has no power over the present. Only you give it power.
  • What you believe has more power that what you dream or wish or hope for. You become what you believe.
  • Worrying is wasted time. Use the same energy for doing something about whatever worries you.
  • If the only prayer you say is thank you that will be enough.
  • The happiness you feel is in direct proportion to the love you give.
  • Trust your instincts. Intuition does not lie.
  • Let passion drive your profession.
  • Love doesn’t hurt. It feels really good.
  • Every day brings a chance to start over.
  • When you don’t know what to do. Get still. The answer will come.
  • Failure is a signpost to turn you in another direction.

STRATEGIES FOR RESOURCEFULNESS

If you are worried about a situation, ask yourself:

What’s the worst thing that can happen?

Is it really so bad?  It usually isn’t.

Seek out people who make you feel good, relaxed and resourceful.

Read a book that is inspiring.

Refuse to read bad news during a negative period.

Write a list of all the things which are good in your life, then compare it with the ‘problem’. See how insignificant the problem seems.

Watch a film that helps you get in a positive state.

If you have kids, play games with them.

If you don’t have kids, pretend your one!

Go somewhere, which inspires you.

Meditate.

Ask someone for a hug.

Read a funny story before you go to bed.

Women in small business

I heard the fantastic news of Marissa Mayer named as the new CEO of Yahoo, it has set a milestone for the first pregnant woman to be named CEO of a Fortune 500 company, which is fantastic for Women in business and just goes to show we can do it all!!

It lead me on to find this interesting infographic from Success.com

small women in business

These numbers are based in the States, but we tend to follow suit here in the UK. Are you encouraged by the numbers? The fastest growing segment in the US economy is fantastic and just shows the confidence, energy and commitment women have to business and family life!

Although more challenging do you think self-employment or running your own business fits in better with juggling family life that a 9 to 5 ?
