OPRAH WINFREY’S STORY

“There is no such thing as failure. Failure is just life trying to move us in another direction” – Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey is a classic example of someone who was able to turn the tables and overcome life’s challenges to achieve extraordinary success in life.

Oprah Winfrey had a disastrous upbringing and had to suffer abuse, hardships during her early years. At age 22, she was fired from her show at local Baltimore station and moved to daytime TV which to anyone else would have been a step-down. But Oprah Winfrey turned this around to become a household name having the number one talk show and became an international sensation.

When everything fell apart she had the determination to keep moving forward and all the soul searching paid off as she rose to be most powerful business woman and a billionaire.

Lesson: Perseverance is the key – if you believe what you are doing is right, keep at it and move forward. Don’t be afraid of failure. In Oprah Winfrey’s own words “It is not a failure if you enjoyed the process”
