I was listening to Oprah the other day, and she relayed some profound insight that coincides with my previous post Authenticity. I wanted to share it with you all in order to drive home my point of staying true to yourself.
The morning after I wrote the Authenticity post, I turned on my meditation app to hear Oprah speak of staying focused while in your zone and being in a state of elevated awareness. She spoke about a past interview she had with NBA player Lebron James, whom she referred to as one of the most focused competitors to ever play the game. During this interview, she asked him what could cause a MVP like him to loose his rhythm on the court. He responded, "I get off my game when I start playing for others rather than myself." Oprah then said, "this is true for all of us. We fall off course the minute our intention shifts from following our heart to responding to what we think others believe."
Let's block out the all the noise and play our own games.
Peace and Blessings,
