Loved around the world – American television host, producer, and philanthropist Oprah Winfrey has most certainly left her mark on the face of history. Once the world’s only black billionaire, arguably the single greatest philanthropist in American history and often considered to be the most influential woman in the world, there is so much that Oprah’s life can teach us all.
Having overcome unspeakable hardships during her early life, Oprah went on to become the inspirational person that she is today, reaching out to millions from around the world with the generosity and transparency that she is famous for. Not surprisingly, many people look to Oprah for inspiration and guidance on how they too can become their very best and turn their lives around for the better.
1. “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”
Our reality is what we make it; Oprah knows this and it is with this knowledge that she has been able to take the negatives from her earlier life and transform them into such dazzling positives.
Oprah knows that what we give most of our attention and thoughts to, is what we attract the most of in our life. So, use gratitude to focus your thoughts on the positives that are already in your life. Do this and they should continue to multiply and multiply until there is no longer room in your life for the negatives. Find out more about gratitude and some simple gratitude exercises that you can practice daily.
2. “Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping stone to greatness.”
Failure is something that we tend to try and avoid; people regard failure as a negative that is standing in the way between them and their success. Oprah however, sees failure in a different light.
For Oprah, failure is something that only those brave enough to reach for their dreams can experience. So, if you do not sometimes fail, then you are not striving hard enough to accomplish your dreams. Fail more often; failure is often what brings us that little bit closer to our dreams. Failure is wisdom.
3. “We can’t become what we need to be by remaining what we are.”
Have you ever considered the saying – ‘You can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs’? Well, the same can be said of life and happiness. Without change, you can never grow any greater than what you are now. So, what small changes can you begin to make to become the person that you want to be?
You cannot expect to change your life by continuing on the same path that you are on now; your life can only change to the extent of the changes that you make in yourself.
4. “When I look into the future, it’s so bright it burns my eyes.”
Your life and the people, experiences, and opportunities in it are all exactly as you have made them. It doesn’t matter if you are currently unhappy or happy with your life as it is; this is something to be celebrated! After all, can you think of anything greater than knowing your future is going to be exactly as you make it?
Know that your life to come is completely within your control. Oprah understood this and made the most of it by squeezing as much as she could from this truly life-changing knowledge! So, if you want to live out your greatest possible life you have to focus your energies on looking ahead to a future that is BIG, Bright and breathtakingly BEAUTIFUL.
5. “The greatest discovery of all time is that a person can change his future by merely changing his attitude.”
Oprah has always considered this discovery to be one of the greatest catalysts in her life for change; the discovery that with even the simplest of shifts in attitude, your future can begin to change for the better.
When your attitude becomes one of positivity and excitement, these are the things that you can attract into your life with greater speed and ease. Want to be loved? Make your attitude more loving. Want to be wealthy? Become more wealthy minded. Want to live more peacefully? Make your thoughts more peaceful.
Transform your attitude to life; become the change that you want to see in your life, beginning with your attitude.
