golden globes speech 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 respond to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I now 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 believe that you walk in the world, understanding that whatever issues 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 view 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 with no knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you in your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can’t do it. You can’t survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. I’m not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You have to understand that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something larger than you. And not only your parents that desired to have a kid. The fact that that hag was hit by that little sperm in that specific moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to happen in order for you
Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of that creation, all the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to know this, that I’m here matters that you are there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your very best people notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best places you at the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There is no luck without you being prepared to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d 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 did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for each individual, each and every thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people do not know their purpose. And if you don’t understand your goal, your immediate goal is to figure that out because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you’re supposed to be doing. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing this, the universe speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. It just feels like that. It’s that it’s that kind 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 pay attention to that. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is the whisper. I am 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 cannot do it. I’ve known for quite a long time that I am a blessed person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can’t have all 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 every season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three structures.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, must step our game up. The way you step up your game isn’t to worry about the other man in any situation as 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 would say to my team all the time. Do not waste your time in the race, looking back to see where the other man is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other man. It is about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as you can. 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 states for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That is the basic, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand that each thought that I think every thought I have that moves into action is going to create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world is going to return. It’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It’s true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It’s already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty of other men and women who do you are either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it’s like this all of the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct ratio to the middle 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 of yourself, from your link 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 that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your personality comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is true power. And that’s the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you’re 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’s like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s time. How many times you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what’s lasting is who you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give?
