I guess everyone know Oprah, she’s a talk show host, actress and producer. And I’m sure that everyone heard about “The oprah winfrey show”.
Oprah represent the successful powerful, and the brave women, she is one of the women who made everything from nothing, she’s one of the person who always care about self-improvement, literature and spirituality. I’m not here to talk about how great she is, but to talk about her book “What I know for sure”.
This book was one of the books that I wanted always to read, something in the title made me curious about what oprah does know for sure, I mean what a person like her knows for sure, what she could learn, and how she become who she is after everything, what I knew for sure that all the answers to my questions are there in the book.
It’s a book where everyone could have a new vision to life, a totally different vision than what you think of life especially if you had enough of everything, for me the book is a break which take you somewhere else and brings you back with new faith and hope to keep forward.
The funniest thing is the book has no summary on the back but once you see the author’s name, you don’t care about it. Also I loved how Oprah end’s her book with a quote “I know for sure: Your journey begins with a choice to get up, step out, and live fully.” Oprah winfery
I knew that Oprah was smarter than writing a summary only for her book and she did a summary for whole life, the first time I heard the sentence what I know for sure was on her last episode from her show saying that what she knows for sure we all are called, everybody has a calling, and your job in life is to figure out what that is and get about the business of doing it.
I believe that everyone in life has a message and a mission to do and it is why we are different, but they are things in common in this word and once we keep them we are in the right way to do what we want.
The first chapter of the book started with “Joy” and the last one is “Power”, and between these two chapters you will find “. Connection, gratitude, Awe, clarity…”
And I loved the order of the book, I think that best decisions in life start with a joy and they must end up as a power, and between them is the way to be powerful.
If I could say something about this book it’s a life lesson where we should learn to be generous with ourselves and others, and share what we have with the world also it’s about appreciating what we have and who we are. And keep being positive about ourselves and others.
My favorite parts are where Oprah said:
- Life is full of delightfull treasures, if we take a moment to appreciate them.
- I know for sure that i don’t want to live a shut down life–desensitized to feeling and see i want every day to be a fresh start on expanding what possible.
- You don’t have to waste an other day on that road. You can begin again
