Oprah Winfrey is one of my idols who proved that hard work and consistency can take us a long way, irrespective of our looks. She made a mark in the so-called “man’s world” and proved that anything is possible. After being rejected, she was told she wasn’t fit for television and she would never make it on TV and she is now one of the most influential women in the world.
Here are 12 most empowering, motivational and inspirational quotes by Oprah Winfrey that will improve your outlook towards life.

Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping store to greatness.
You are responsible for your life. If you’re sitting around waiting on somebody to save you, to fix you, to even help you, you are wasting your time. Only you have the power to move your life forward.
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.
Difficulties come when you don’t pay attention to life’s whispers. Life always whispers to you first, but if you ignore the whisper, sooner or later you’ll get a scream.
You become what you believe.
No experience is wasted. Everything in life is happening to grow you up, to fill you up, to help you to become more of who you were created to be.
Turn your wounds into wisdom.
You get in life what you have the courage to Ask For.
The key is not to worry about being successful, but to instead work toward being significant – and the success will naturally follow.
Do that one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it.
If it doesn’t feel right, don’t do it. That is the lesson, and that lesson alone will save you a lot of grief.
