Weekly inspiration: Oprah Winfrey’s 5 powerful motivational quotes to inspire your journey!

The world has been buzzing about Oprah in the past few days, ever since her – now infamous – interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle aired on CBS. But, the truth is, the world has always been buzzing about Miss Winfrey, as she is considered by many to be the most influential woman in the world.  

Born into poverty, Oprah overcame many hardships, including a teen pregnancy and childhood molestation, to become a world-beating media mogul and the richest African-American woman in history. With a net worth of over 2.7 billion, it is no wonder why we have picked Oprah Gail Winfrey to be the one that begins our weekly #nuinspiration series.  

Below, you can find our favorite Oprah quotes, that have a lot to teach us about how to deal with hardship, stay true to who you are and create the life we’ve always wanted! 

“Create the highest, grandest vision possible for your life because you become what you believe.”

Winfrey was born into poverty in rural Mississippi to a single teenage mother and later raised in inner-city Milwaukee. She has stated that she was molested during her childhood and early teens. She became pregnant at 14 but her son was born prematurely and died in infancy.  Looking back on her past, we can see that she never let her struggles define her, or limit the potential for her life in any way. 

We become what we think! You might have heard this before, and it simply means that how we interpret our experiences, and the story we tell ourselves in our head, can either help us achieve the success we want, or keep us trapped in our current circumstances. 

 

"The reason I've been able to be so financially successful is that my focus has never, ever for one minute been money."

Money is essential, but it shouldn’t be the main thing that drives you. There has to be a stronger purpose that anchors what you’re doingor is the beacon that everything is connected to. If money is the only factor, when you hit bumps in the road (and you will), money often is not a strong enough motivator to keep you focused and persisting through. Being focused on something  important, a purpose, a why, a true solution, a vision that’s connected to the company, its products and your personal conviction is a much better focus that can stand the tests of time and that you can get behind. 

“The thing you fear most has no power. Your fear of it is what has the power. Facing the truth really will set you free.”

It’s our sense of fear that derails success more often than actual failed attempts at success. The sensation people experience in the face of taking action to achieve their dreams – business, personal, spiritual, whatever — is usually not true fear. It’s F.E.A.R. an acronym for False Evidence Appearing Real. F.E.A.R. is an illusion. 

Something we fabricate in our own minds and pretend it is real. It’s a fairy tale we tell ourselves that keeps us from doing what we really want. The journey is what you’ll relish, and it just might take you somewhere better than you initially hoped. No matter what, each journey teaches you what you need to know to take the next one.  

“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.”

If people aren’t grateful of what they already have, they endlessly crave for more. More money. More houses. More cars. More everything. There’s no stopping in this endless cycle. Being grateful for what you have is an incredibly powerful muscle that can be strengthened. The key benefit is that it helps build, preserve and maintain healthy life. This is not only limited to the present, but you have the potential to have a positive outlook on your past memories and the future outlook. 

The benefits of being grateful, shift over the course of your gratitude practice. It will begin with having a more positive outlook for the past, or current day. Over time, with practice, you will begin to have gratitude for what has yet to happen in the future, which in turn, will bring you peace and fulfillment! 

“You are responsible for your life. You can’t keep blaming somebody else for your dysfunction. Life is really about moving on.”

Blame means less work as when we blame, we don’t have to be held accountable. It’s really the opposite of being responsible and all the work that that entails.  And spending time constantly defending ourselves is really a part-time job that also leaves us shut down to what others have to offer us in terms of lessons and growth. Growth comes when we stop playing the “blame game”, forgive ourselves and take control of our thoughts, actions and future!
