Oprah’s Mental Toughness (And How it Highlights the Importance of Mindset)

G'day,
 
Christmas has come and gone. Your aim from mid-December through to today was to maintain. You’ve had all of these parties and barbeques to attend. The booze flowed and you had a good time.

That’s fine.

But now it’s time to switch on and get yourself focused again.

That means you’ve got to plug back into your successful mindset.

Let me help with that. If you’ve been keeping track of my Facebook page, you’ll have seen me post an old clip of Oprah Winfrey. 

It’s from back in the 80s before she became the huge superstar that she is now. Back then, she was looking to be the first African-American woman to host her own talk show.

That’s huge.

If you watch the interview, pay attention to the interviewer's tone. Hear that condescension in his voice?

He’s a typical naysayer.

Every time Oprah says something to him he brings it back round to what he really wants to talk about.

"What if it doesn’t work?"

I bet you’ve heard that from people plenty of times in the past. You might have even heard it from people when you started The Jowett Method.

It’s a question that comes out of a negative assumption. That interviewers telling Oprah "I don’t think you’re going to succeed in what you want to do."

Now, fast forward 20 or 30 years.

Oprah’s one of the most successful people on the entire planet. And nobody remembers the interviewer’s name.

What I’ve learned is that it’s Oprah’s mindset that helps her to get past negative people like this. She’s got a mental toughness that’s hard to teach.

She’d gone through some rough times when she was younger. But those times built strength and character that people related to.

Oprah’s mindset was always to achieve success on her terms.

It’s how she brushed past the naysayers to do that they thought she couldn't do.

There’s a lesson here for you to take away.

There are always going to be people in life who try to affect your mindset.

Just breeze past them and keep going.

I believe in you.

Love,

Geoff xx"
