I still remember the day when I have heard Oprah Winfrey for the first time. I was 25, broken hearted, it felt like my life was over. Her voice was like an angel sound. Her words were coming deeply into my soul, healing every cell of my body from all the suffer I have had come trough. Her speech was made for me. I have asked myself ” How comes this woman knows exactly how I feel? “. She gave me the hope for a better life. She literally woke me up from a nightmare of my life.
6 years passed by and she is still the most inspiring person in my life, my hero, my hope, my angel. There is so much to learn from her. When nothing goes right she is the one to give me hand with help.
These are 5 rules of happy fulfilling life of Oprah to live by:
1. Know who you are
In her speech to the Spelman College Graduation Students Oprah made a point how important is to know who we truly are. This is the big task in life, to find out what is our purpose. Do you know where are you going? Do you have any sort of vision of yourself?
” Be on the driver seat of your life, because if not, the life will drive you”.
2. You are here for a reason
You were not born just to live the life day by day. The life has much deeper meaning. Find out what is your purpose. Why are you here? You were born to do amazing things in life. You have talent and all the tools to create a better world. You have potential to make a better future for yourself.
3. Create the life you want
Oprah is the real example that you and only you are creator of your own life. You have to decide that if the reality you live in does not satisfy you anymore, it is time to make a drastic step to change it. Take an ownership of your own life. “Be the master of your own life. Be the captain of your soul”.
” The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams”
4. Always do right things
This is a very good lesson for all of us from Oprah: No matter what your job is, no matter what do you do in life- always do right. Search for excellence. Be good to others. People will notice you. You will stand out from crowd. You will become a brand. Your life will never be the same.
5. Live your life to the fullest
In one of her shows Oprah asked: What is the highest vision you hold for yourself?
Have you ever thought about this? Do you know the answer?
Live the life. Use all the potential you have got. Create amazing things.
You can do it. No matter where are you know, no matter of your circumstances you can always stand up, and if you can not stand up- ask for help. Life can be amazing for you, sun can shine bright if you only let it. Use the time you have got. You do not know how much you have left.
