how did oprah winfrey get so rich

In this world, there are a lot of things that 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 we all become exactly what you believe. So in case you believe that you can do everything as 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, understanding that whatever problems 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 view of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the world, to be a portion 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 understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to understand 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 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 have to understand that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something larger than you. And not just your parents that wanted to have a kid. The fact that that hag was hit by that particular little sperm in that specific 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 understand the mystery of the creation, all of the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to understand this, that I am 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’re always do your best and doing your best places you in the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. The moment of opportunity. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I would 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 did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth 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 do not understand your goal, your immediate objective is to figure that out because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you are supposed to do. The sooner you are able 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’s odd. It just really feels like that. It is that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you do not focus on the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it is like getting bumped upside the head.

You don’t pay attention to that. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is your whisper. I’m interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anybody pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You will never ever reach your own personal potential. You cannot do it. I’ve 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 this and not use it for something which is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because every season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There have been more than a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step our game up. The way you step up your game is not to be worried about the other guy in any situation as you can’t 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. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my group all the time. Do not waste your time at the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is that you have to take responsibility for the space. That is my religion. That is the basic, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I meanI know that each thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action will make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world will come back. It’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It is 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 which I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty of other people who do you are either in flow or out of it. And if you’re in flow, it is like this it’s like this all 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 celestial ness of yourself, from the link to source energy. What created you is how out of sync you are with your life, whatever 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 personality comes to serve the energy of your spirit, 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 likely to bag and you’re not going to be beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how frequently you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It is like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s time. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, just how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list. How frequently you make the most influential lists, all that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is who you are and what you were meant to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give?
