educational quotes from 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 know is that all of us become exactly what you believe. So if you believe that you can do everything as 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, understanding that whatever problems you may encounter, you still have God to lean on. As I grew my perception and understanding of what God means grew with me, I expanded my perspective of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the universe, to be a part of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most 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 without that, understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to recognize that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not understanding that puts you in your pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can’t do it. You can’t survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You need to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something greater than you. And not only your parents who desired to have a child. The fact that hag was struck by that particular little sperm in that specific moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to happen in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a party that is.
So once you understand the mystery of that creation, all the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to understand this, the fact that I’m here matters the fact that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do well. People notice when you do your best individuals notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best puts you at the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There is no luck without you being ready to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d say for myself is, is that due to my hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared in ways that I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for each person, each and every thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A lot of people do not know their purpose. And if you do not understand your purpose, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you are supposed to do. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing that, the universe speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just really feels like that. It’s that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you don’t focus on 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. You don’t listen to that. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. I’m interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anyone pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I have known for quite a long time I am a blessed person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can’t have all of this and not use it for something which 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 reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, must step up our game. The way you measure up your game is not to worry about the other guy in any situation because you can not control. The other guy can’t control the other man. So it is like running a race, the energy that it takes to look back and see where the other guys are. It takes energy away from you. 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 man is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other guy. It’s about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as you can. You will need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.

What I know is you have to take responsibility for the distance. That is my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I meanI know that every thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will return. It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It is already done. There is an energy field. There’s an energy flow that I strongly feel within my life. And I know lots of other people who do you are either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it is like this all the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct ratio to the center of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the divine ness yourself, from the link to source energy. That which created you is how out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you can align with this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is true power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are likely to sag and your eyes are going 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 does not last. It is like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is time. How many times you make the most influential lists, all that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give?
