Oprah Winfrey is an American producer, author of the famous book – The Path Made Clear, and philanthropist. She is best known for “The Oprah Winfrey Show” broadcast on American television and was the highest-rated television program of her time.

Oprah believes we all have a purpose of life—and we are born with it. But don’t expect the clarity to come all at once, to know your purpose right away. To fulfill the highest most truthful expression of yourself as a human being. Ask yourself, what makes you alive. You will have questions and doubts about your path, but if you hear a tiny voice inside of you, you will make a difference.

“Real integrity is doing the right thing, knowing that Nobody’s going to know whether you did it or not.”

Oprah Winfrey

It doesn’t matter how far you might rise at some points you are bound to stumble because if you are constantly doing what we do, raising the bar. If you are constantly putting yourself higher and higher, the law of averages, not to mention the myths of Icarus predicts that you will at some point fall. And it’s completely okay to feel bad but at the same time learn from experience which is enhancing you to be more of yourself.

“Where there is no struggle, there is no strength.”

Oprah Winfrey

Oprah further says your purpose doesn’t have to be tied to your career. I have many friends who told me they knew they were meant to have children before they even understood what it was to conceive. I’ve always believed that accepting the call to be a mother is the choice to become the ultimate spiritual teacher. Because mothers live in service and sacrifice to their children.

“Turn your wounds into wisdom.”
