She certainly knows how to succeed! Oprah Winfrey has advice that everyone must remember well!
What advice is that?
Have you ever looked at an old painting and felt as if you had gone back in time – to the extent that you could feel the clothes you were wearing at the time?
There is one photo of me, taken when I was twenty-one, that makes me feel just like that. The skirt I wore on it cost forty dollars — more than I had ever spent on a garment before — but I bought it for my first interview with a great celebrity: Jesse Jackson. He gave a speech at the local high school, telling the students: “Say no to drugs, let hope survive!” – and I was given the task of reporting on it. The boss did not think that the event was worth reporting on, but I insisted (well, I prayed) that I would assure him that I would bring a story worthy of breaking news. And that’s what I did.
I loved telling other people’s stories, extracting the truth of their experience, and distilling it into wisdom that could inform, inspire, or benefit someone else. Yet, if I had wavered before the first hurdle and given up on that story, I would never have been where I am today.
If I had known then what I know now, I would never have spent a single moment doubting my path.
Whatever challenge you face, you need to keep in mind that you are holding the brush as the canvas of your life is painted with everyday experiences, behaviors, reactions, and emotions. If I had known that when I was twenty-one, I would have spared myself a lot of suffering and doubt. It was a revelation for me when I realized that we are all painters of our own lives – and that we can use paint and brush strokes as much as we want.
So when life gets tough, the best I can do is ask myself a simple question: What does this have to teach me?
It is a blessing when you manage to survive every trouble, when you go further step by step, when you are in a position to climb the mountain of life knowing that the top still lies in front of you. Every experience is a valuable teacher.
There are no difficult periods, only periods that teach us something. Every obstacle is there for a reason and leads us to the final destination.
We all have moments when we sink low, which requires us to stand up, in our very center, and know who we are. When your marriage falls apart, when you lose the job that defined you, when the people you were counting on turn their backs on you, there is no doubt that you need to change the way you think about a situation in order to improve it.
I know for sure that all our obstacles have their meaning. The difference between success and stagnation lies in the openness to learn something from those challenges.
