What I know for sure
No matter what challenge you may be facing, you must remember that while the canvas of your life is painted with daily experiences behavior reaction and emotions, you are the one controlling the brush.
Before reading this book I knew Oprah Winfrey as the Anchor of popular TV show. A lady with her common looks and uncommon way of hosting a show made it matchless worldwide. I remember, I first heard about her in my class room where my English teacher asked us to say few lines on her. Being on the first bench I was the first to answer. I don’t remember any of us would have spoken any words about her leaving, me even more curious about the lady. I goggled to know her whereabouts; she is the anchor or Oprah Winfrey show and is visiting India for the very first time. My quest ended up there. But little did I know that she is good author and has published many of her write ups. One of her book ‘I KNOW FOR SURE’ was suggested by a friend stating it as mood up lifter. Winfrey has written a book –this info was enough to get me excited and it is motivational as well, WOW. Soon, I had the book in my hand. The title only appeared thought-provoking to me and I know for sure, I will like it.
It took me three days to finish this book written without acknowledgement letter and praise words. I know for sure she must not need them as her moral purpose is to enlighten the society and people around the globe. So she does well. Every line and story in this book is thought provoking, leaving you to understand your purpose of being alive. WHY I AM HERE? WHAT IS MY PURPOSE OF BEING ALIVE? WHAT ALL I HAVE ACHIEVED? WHAT STONE IS LEFT UNTURNED IN MY LIFE? And many more! I feel, each book is written with a purpose, some to motivate, some to educate, some to make laugh, fall in love and some to make you think of you being alive. Every page I turned has something vivid in it be it a story of a 13 year old boy who happily died or a person who survived defeating death. it has a kind of story telling that will lingers for a long time in my mind and inspired me to keep moving no matter what.
You are here for a purpose and you just living if it’s not fulfilled. Doesn’t stop keep learning, and if you think you know enough than you have lived your life. Your purpose of being on this planet is over. These lines make sense to me.
I knew Opera Winfrey only as successful host of a show before I read this book. But knowing her past life gave me adrenaline rush. Life has been a roller coaster ride to this lady and she has overcome all the problems, shining. I owe her my respect.
All I learnt is ‘we shouldn’t make opinion about other unless we know their story of fight and struggle to win.
