In honor of Oprah Winfrey’s INCREDIBLE speech at last night’s Golden Globes I am sharing some of my all-time favorite Oprah quotes to inspire, uplift, and motivate you to make 2018 YOUR best year yet!
26 Powerful Oprah Quotes- Inspiration To Live YOUR Best Life
As a young girl, I would come home to my sweet mother each weekday after school and without fail she would be watching and soaking up all the goodness she could from The Oprah Winfrey Show. Truth is I can be pretty certain that many of the wise words spoken to me by my mother were in fact paraphrases of Oprah’s teachings. And, still today Oprah’s words of wisdom through her books, Super Soul Sundays, and most recently her motivational speech at the Golden Globes help light the way for me to live my best life. Today I am sharing some of my all-time favorite Oprah Winfrey Quotes.
Oprah Quotes about Living a Fulfilled Life-
1 “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”
2 “True forgiveness is when you can say, “Thank you for that experience.”
3 “You can have it all. Just not all at once.”
4 “It makes no difference how many peaks you reach if there was no pleasure in the climb.”
5 “Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure. ”
6 “Forgiveness is giving up the hope that the past could have been any different.”
7 “I believe that every single event in life happens in an opportunity to choose love over fear.”
8 “The essential question is not, “How busy are you?’ but ‘What are you busy at?’ ‘Are you doing what fulfills you?”
9 “Turn your wounds into wisdom.”
10 “What I know for sure is that what you give comes back to you.”
11 “Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.”
Motivational Oprah Winfrey Quotes-
12 “You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.”
13 “Live from the heart of yourself. You have to make a living. I understand that. But, you also have to know what sparks the light in you so that you, in your own way, can illuminate the world.”
14 “The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams.”
15 “It doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from. The ability to triumph begins with you—always.”
16 “You don’t become what you want, you become what you believe.”
17 “The great courageous act that we must all do, is to have the courage to step out of our history and past so that we can live our dreams.”
18 “Challenges are gifts that force us to search for a new center of gravity. Don’t fight them. Just find a new way to stand.”
19 “The true meaning of courage is to be afraid, and then, with your knees knocking and your heart racing, to step out anyway—even when that step makes sense to nobody but you. I know that’s not easy. But making a bold move is the only way to truly advance toward the grandest vision the universe has for you.”
20 “I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you. ”
21 “Devote today to something so daring even you can’t believe you’re doing it.”
22 “We often block our own blessings because we don’t feel inherently good enough or smart enough or worthy enough. What this show has taught me … you are worthy because you are born and because you are here.”
23 “I will tell you that there have been no failures in my life. I don’t want to sound like some metaphysical queen, but there have been no failures. There have been some tremendous lessons.”
The BEST Oprah Quotes from the Golden Globes-
24 “What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have.”
25 “…She lived as we all have lived, too many years in a culture broken by brutally powerful men. For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men. But their time is up. Their time is up.”
26 “I’ve interviewed and portrayed people who’ve withstood some of the ugliest things life can throw at you, but the one quality all of them seem to share is an ability to maintain hope for a brighter morning, even during our darkest nights.”

I completely agree with “be thankful for what you have.” It’s those that focus on a glass half full that never quite feel that they have enough.
