What Oprah knows...

When I was reading about this, I realized that it would be fun if I can list down all the things I've know for sure. But those I put down on my list of course are all based on my personal thoughts. I might probably going to do this. Maybe on the weekend I will start doing this little project. Came to think of it, there are lots of things we've known for sure but don't you think it'd be better if you know exactly the points of your thinking? Those points that you believe is true...no matter what people think. Those points do not necessarily have to be a rocket scientist thought but just a simple thoughts on life, lesson learned, love and many other thought that you have on your mind. and since it is based on your own experience, you will always truly believe on those points that you put down on your list.
The Top 20 Things Oprah Knows for Sure

  1. What you put out comes back all the time, no matter what. (This is my creed.)
  2. You define your own life. Don't let other people write your script.
  3. Whatever someone did to you in the past has no power over the present. Only you give it power.
  4. When people show you who they are, believe them the first time. (A lesson from Maya Angelou.)
  5. Worrying is wasted time. Use the same energy for doing something about whatever worries you.
  6. What you believe has more power than what you dream or wish or hope for. You become what you believe.
  7. If the only prayer you ever say is thank you, that will be enough. (From the German theologian and humanist Meister Eckhart.)
  8. The happiness you feel is in direct proportion to the love you give.
  9. Failure is a signpost to turn you in another direction.
  10. If you make a choice that goes against what everyone else thinks, the world will not fall apart.
  11. Trust your instincts. Intuition doesn't lie.
  12. Love yourself and then learn to extend that love to others in every encounter.
  13. Let passion drive your profession.
  14. Find a way to get paid for doing what you love. Then every paycheck will be a bonus.
  15. Love doesn't hurt. It feels really good.
  16. Every day brings a chance to start over.
  17. Being a mother is the hardest job on earth. Women everywhere must declare it so.
  18. Doubt means don't. Don't move. Don't answer. Don't rush forward.
  19. When you don't know what to do, get still. The answer will come.
  20. "Trouble don't last always." (A line from a Negro spiritual, which calls to mind another favorite: This, too, shall pass.)
