famous quote of oprah winfrey

In this world, there are a 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 because you have been endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you believe 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 comprehension 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 portion of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most things.

I call that God, but I do nothing without that, knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to recognize that you are co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not understanding that puts you at your own 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. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You need to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something larger than you. And not only your parents who desired to have a kid. The fact that that hag was struck by that particular little sperm in that particular moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to occur in order for you
To be here?

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

And the fact is for me and for every individual, 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 don’t know your goal, your immediate objective is to figure that out because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you are supposed to be doing. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing that, the world speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually in 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 sort of subtle. And if you don’t pay attention to the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it is like getting bumped upside the head.

You do not pay attention to that. You don’t listen to that. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is your whisper. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve known for a very 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 intention, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season somebody else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step our game up. How you step up your game is not to be worried about the other guy in any situation as you can not control. The other guy can’t control the other guy. You only have control over yourself. So it’s like running a race, the energy that it takes to look back and see where the other men are. It takes energy away from you. And if they’re 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’s about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is you have to take responsibility for the space. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That’s the basic, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand that every thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world is going to return. It’s true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It’s already done. There’s an energy field. There is an energy flow which I strongly feel in my own life. And I know lots of other people who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all of the time. It is like this. It’s 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 within you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the divine ness yourself, from the connection to source energy. That which created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you’re able to align with this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true 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 authentic power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One day your breasts are likely to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you are not going to be as beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times you get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It is like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is time. How frequently you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give?
