fun facts about oprah winfrey

In this world, there are a whole lot of things that 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 we all become exactly what you believe. So in case you think that you can do all things because you have been endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you think that you walk into the world, understanding that whatever problems you may experience, 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 world, to be a portion of the energy field which 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 without that, knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you at your pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can’t do it. You cannot survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. 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 just your parents that desired to have a child. The fact 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 choices that had to happen in order for you
Now? What a celebration that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of that creation, all of the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to know this, the fact that I’m here matters that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do well. Folks notice when you do your best people notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best places you at the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. 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 due to my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for each individual, every single thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t 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’re 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 on your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. Or that does not make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just really feels like that. It’s that it’s that kind of subtle. And if you do not 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 pay attention to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. When you’re no longer doing this, 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 anybody pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve known for quite a long time that I am a lucky 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 determines 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, 1 talk show to reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, must step up our game. The way you measure up your game isn’t 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 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 group all the time. Do not waste your time at 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 possible.

What I know is you got to take responsibility for the space. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That is the basic, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I mean, I understand that every thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action will create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world is going to come back. It is the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It is 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 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 is like this all of the time. It is like this. It’s like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct ratio to the center of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the divine ness of yourself, from the connection to source energy. What created you is how out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you can align with that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, when your character comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is authentic power. And that is the only real power that is cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are likely 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 frequently you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It is just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it’s time. How frequently you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you were meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give?
