Mega-millionaire talk show host, prolific and accomplished actress, book publisher, and African-American role-model has achieved her American dream. Oprah Winfrey has been an inspiration to many people who seek to be like her, and others who simply want to follow in her footsteps to create their own success story. This next few passages deal with quotes from Oprah Winfrey that will engage the senses, and also will give motivation for those people about to abandon their dreams. “As you become more clear about who you really are, you’ll be better able to decide what is best for you – the first time around. Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough. Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it.”
Success does not come by a lack of diligent hard work; it is more so the smart effort you put into your endeavors as so eloquently Oprah Winfrey speaks about. “Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.” This is a most pure form of sacrifice and discipline; this is what I have learned from this woman who inner strength was her saving grace, and reminder of the choices we make – ultimately determine who we become in this life. “Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it.”
What is life without dreams to dream? “I don’t think of myself as a poor deprived ghetto girl who made good. I think of myself as somebody who from an early age knew I was responsible for myself, and I had to make good.” Sound words of advice for anyone that feels the only way out is to fight and rise above their misfortune and present circumstance. “If you want to accomplish the goals of your life, you have to begin with the spirit.” Nothing in this life happens without sacrifice and constant smart hard work, this has been her motto and hot-button throughout her life.
Oprah Winfrey makes us look up to the sky and believe that anything in this life is possible to achieve if you just believe in your self, the God given talent that is bestowed upon us from God and heaven above. “It isn’t until you come to a spiritual understanding of who you are – not necessarily a religious feeling, but deep down, the spirit within – that you can begin to take control.” The most powerful force in the universe comes from a place far far away, but we know what it is because we can feel the spirit moving between our inner soul, this is the force that truly sets us free.
Oprah Winfrey will continue to be a positive role-model for African-Americans, and people of all nationalities that can distinguish honesty from blatant propagation. “Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity.”
