What I Know for Sure
As a creative force, student of the human heart and soul, and champion of living the life you want, Oprah Winfrey stands alone. Over the years, she has made history with a legendary talk show – the highest-rated program of its kind, launched her own television network, become the nation’s only African-American billionaire, and been awarded both an honorary degree by Harvard University and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
From all her experiences, she has gleaned life lessons—which, for fourteen years, she’s shared in O, The Oprah Magazine’s widely popular “What I Know For Sure” column, a monthly source of inspiration and revelation.
“There are many reasons why individuals of all ages and backgrounds are drawn to Oprah Winfrey. She has the ability to reach you with words and topics that few people can do, and it has made her a beloved force in the world for the past 3 decades. In her book WHAT I KNOW FOR SURE she is able to take the messages she has shared over the years through television and her magazine and put them together in a book so that we can read, reflect and savor them.
One of the most powerful things that Oprah talks about in the book is the importance of our time. She says in the book that she doesn’t like to waste time, because she doesn’t like to waste herself. She like to make every moment count, but she realizes at this point in her life the importance of savoring each moment, allowing what we are doing to sink in and be appreciated. I am still learning that in many ways, but it is a great reminder for us all to make sure that life is not too full that we don’t enjoy it.
The other thing that really got me is how she defines herself. Oprah’s journey with weight has been something she has discussed publicly and seen be a topic of discussion for others. In the book she says that she no longer allows a number on a scale to determine her value, her worth or who she is. Another great nugget for us: make sure that we don’t allow the superficial to be the thing that we define ourselves and others by. We are so much more than a number or a look. We are a whole being that is worthy of love, and the sooner we recognize that the sooner we can live it.
Full of amazing nuggets that you will be able to savor yourself and share with others, WHAT I KNOW FOR SURE is a keeper for anyone who wants to discover the secret to living their best life.”
