5 Oprah life lessons to get you through the week

American media mogul Oprah Winfrey is one of the best examples of a world figure that started from humble beginnings and rose through the ashes to become one of the most successful people in the world. Through the years as the world’s queen of Talk TV, she has given millions of people hope and courage through her motivational wisdom. Here are five truths to get you going this week:

1. You are responsible for your life

“If you’re sitting around waiting for someone to fix you, to save you and help you, you are wasting your time.”


2. Ward off negative energy in your life

“I have to take responsibility for the energy I allow to be brought into my space. You cannot continue to move forward in your life to the level you need to be if you’re surrounded by energy that brings you down.”


3. Be thankful, even for the smallest things

“When you think you don’t have anything I always say go back to your breath.”


4. Forgiveness could be your “Aha” moment

On an Oprah Winfrey Show moment that changed her life, Oprah said this definition of forgiveness was even bigger than an “Aha moment”:

“He said forgiveness is giving up the hope that the past could be any different.”


5. Give and receive good karma

“If there are a lot of negative people in your life, l don’t look at them, look at the energy you are creating to attract them.”
