brainy quotes oprah winfrey

In this world, there are a whole lot of things which are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you react to whatever happens in your life. What I now know is that all of us become just what you believe. So if you believe that you can do all things because you’re endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you think that you walk in the world, knowing that whatever issues you may experience, you still have God to lean on. As I grew my perception and understanding of what God means grew with me, I expanded my view of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the world, to be a part of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things. And so my confidence comes from knowing that there is something greater than myself, that I am a part of and is also a part of me.

I call that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you at your pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can’t do it. You cannot survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. You’re not big enough to do it. I’m not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You need to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something larger than you. And not only your parents who wanted to have a kid. The fact that hag was struck by that little sperm in that particular moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to happen in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a celebration that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of that creation, all of the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to understand this, that I’m here matters the fact that you are there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do well. Folks notice when you do your best individuals notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best puts you at the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being ready to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that because of my hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways that I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for each individual, every single thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people do not know their purpose. And if you don’t understand your purpose, your immediate objective is to figure that out because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you are supposed to do. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing that, the world speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. Or that doesn’t make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just feels like that. It’s that it’s that kind of subtle. And if you don’t pay attention to the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it’s like getting bumped upside the head.

You don’t listen to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is the whisper. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I have known for quite a long time I am a lucky person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can not have all this and not use it for something that is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because each season someone else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.

There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. How you measure up your game is not to worry about the other guy in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy can’t control the other guy. So it’s like running a race, the energy it takes to return and see where the other guys are. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my team all the time. Don’t waste your time at the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other man. It is about what can you do? You simply need to run that race as hard as possible. You need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.

What I know is you got to take responsibility for the distance. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I meanI understand that each thought that I think every thought I have that moves into action will make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will come back. It’s true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It is already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow which I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty of other men and women who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it is like this all the time. It’s like this. It’s like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion to the center of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the center, from the celestial ness yourself, from the link to source energy. That which created you is how out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.

When you’re able to align with that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his book seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your personality comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic power. And that is the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. 1 day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you are not going to be beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times you get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It is just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it is time. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list. How frequently you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
