Don’t’ be afraid to dream big

“Create the highest, grandest vision possible for your life because you become what you believe.”

If you can dream it, you can achieve it - and nobody knows that better than Oprah. Despite growing up in a poor rural community, she went on to become a billionaire whose name is known all over the world. She didn’t allow her circumstances to put a limit on her dreams.

Find your passion

“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.”

Without passion, you will have little to no satisfaction in almost every job you do. Finding your passion and purpose will motivate you to get up in the morning regardless of what challenges come your way.

Become an expert in your field

“The number one lesson I can offer you is…to become so skilled, so vigilant, so flat-out fantastic at what you do that your talent cannot be dismissed.”

If you want to stand out from the competition in the working world, you need to be the best at what you do. Always work on your skills and talent. Never stop learning!

“Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping stone to greatness.”

Failure is a part of life and if you don’t fail, you aren’t learning. Failure is a bitter pill to swallow but there is a lot to learn from your mistakes. You can only grow and get better.

Do your best

“Doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.”

Too often we put too much pressure on ourselves to achieve certain things. But just doing your best in every situation is enough to propel you forward.
