Another interesting quote by Oprah Winfrey, and an advice that applies to many things in life, love, success, fame … Just focus on the important and the rest will follow.
Don’t worry about being successful but work toward being significant and the success will naturally follow.– Oprah Winfrey
To dissect the quote:
Don’t worry about being successful: It is not in your power to be successful or not, and it is not something that you can acquire quickly, a bit like going up the ladder, you can not worry about how to be on top of the ladder while you are still at the bottom.
Work toward being significant: Success should not be an objective per se, growth, recognition … You are a part of a community, as an individual or business, your objective should be how to be of value to the community
The success will naturally follow: Once you start giving from your heart to your community, recognition and success will follow.
