Oprah Winfrey sets a wonderful example of a person of passion. From her early years in broadcasting to her 25 amazing years with her own network show, she lived and worked true to these words.

How passionate are you? What is it like for you on Sunday evening or on Monday morning as you embark on the day ahead?


Pay particular attention to your daily levels of passion, energy and excitement. They are barometers for a fully engaged life.

Be prepared to make some needed changes and to become your own “weather forecaster”, paying attention to these barometers so you can have that feeling of living a powerful and passionate life.

Please consider replying to this message and let me know what you plan to do differently and what results you produce from these changes.

#70: “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.”

– Oprah Winfrey

I watched the final three episodes of Oprah’s 25 years on television – and remembered how big an impact she has had on so many people. Her mantra has always been “live your best life” – and she always provided programming to help people do just that.

This quote, however, indicates the importance of accepting and being grateful for all of our blessings. It points to the current abundance in our worlds and in our lives, and shows how being thankful seems to attract even more good things.


Create a list of all the things in your life that you are thankful for, and keep asking yourself “what else?”

I hope you get writer’s cramp! 🙂
