You can have it all, just not at the same time

In an interview with People magazine about her partnership with Weight Watchers, Oprah said she could eat anything she wanted, but not at one time. Looking deep into her words, the meaning of that statement goes beyond nutrition. That’s how life is; you can’t have everything at the same time. Life goes on in stages. You can have two Lamborghinis, three Bugattis and four Ducatis, but you won’t be able to drive them at the same time, right?

Take a day off

Oprah once commented that she used her Sundays as spiritual renewal days. She also said Sunday is the day she does nothing. Okay, we may disagree here based on the days we want to take off, but mind you, Lady O isn’t telling you to laze around. All that that means is you should often take breaks and enjoy some time alone. There should be days when you stay away from your business or job and just focus on calmness.

Oprah has been talking about this issue for years and she still maintains her stand. In one of her interviews, she said that when human beings show you who they are, believe them.

You are powerful

Have you ever been in a situation where you tried to do something valuable and people still criticized you? If yes, then you and Oprah are in the same club and she’s got something to tell you – whether it’s at work or within your community, don’t let anybody define who you are.

Don’t let anyone set the boundaries on how powerful you are. You should know your strength and you should know that it comes from a source. Whenever you connect to this source, you brew with energy and feel happy. Just focus on connecting to that source and forget about everything else.
