Description

As a creative force, student of the human heart and soul, and champion of living the life you want, Oprah Winfrey stands alone. Over the years, she has made history with a legendary talk show - the highest-rated program of its kind, launched her own television network, become the nation's only African-American billionaire, and been awarded both an honorary degree by Harvard University and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. From all her experiences, she has gleaned life lessons—which, for fourteen years, she's shared in O, The Oprah Magazine's widely popular "What I Know For Sure" column, a monthly source of inspiration and revelation.

Now, for the first time, these thoughtful gems have been revised, updated, and collected in What I Know For Sure, a beautiful cloth bound book with a ribbon marker, packed with insight and revelation from Oprah Winfrey. Organized by theme—joy, resilience, connection, gratitude, possibility, awe, clarity, and power—these essays offer a rare, powerful and intimate glimpse into the heart and mind of one of the world's most extraordinary women—while providing readers a guide to becoming their best selves. Candid, moving, exhilarating, uplifting, and frequently humorous, the words Oprah shares in What I Know For Sure shimmer with the sort of truth that readers will turn to again and again.

    This book had so many parallels to my life such as striving to live a spiritual life and having aborted religion, growing up in the south and raised under southern baptist religion, being that little girl sitting on the first pew because my grandfather was the preacher, believing that I had to marry my children’s father because I was pregnant with his child out of wedlock, the disappointment of working like a dog to prove that I am worth it to supervisors who did not appreciate my worth, going through a divorce that my mom didn’t know about until I disclosed it after physically separating from my husband because I knew that she wasn’t ready for my truth, playing the role of having the perfect family and marriage only to bury the deadness that I felt inside, and this is only to name a few experiences... I could go on but I won’t. I’m just realizing that this isn’t a therapy session...lol! However, I felt like Oprah was speaking to me personally as it related to many of her life experiences because I either experienced these things or currently experiencing them. I feel as if this book reflects who I am presently, in the past, as well as who I strive to be in my future. I’m appreciative of Oprah’s transparency and I feel guidance in the words and wisdom that was shared. The crazy thing about this is that I purchased this book a couple of years ago and had not finished but 1/4 of it only to pick it up 3 days ago to come to its end and it never lost my interest. Not that it did before however, I believes that all things occur when they are supposed to. Maybe I’m more receptive now and not only that in a different space that’s ready for change. I’m ready for newer and better things. I’m also excited about reading more of Oprah’s work....You may not be in the pulpit Oprah but you’re still preaching just as you did while you were in grade school. The only difference is that it’s truth... Thank you! With pure Love, ~Leila Daniels

    This is a kind book. From my eyes. Beginning of 2013 I lost my husband suddenly. My baby brother suddenly that July. My nephew bright me the Achlamist to read at this broken time. I've been lost for 2 years. I've had many life lessons... Loosing parents young, we lost our home to a fire. But first time alone responsible for my own happiness. I use courage every day. Thank you Oprah! Go! Me!

    I keep this audio book in my car and play it when I need a lift or to come back to my center. Her advice is universal; she has come from being a poor young girl in the South and through sheer perseverance and a zillion lessons, she is now a self made empire. We all have much to learn from this generous soul who discusses topics such as friendship, living beyond your financial means and staying open enough to learn the lessons the universe is trying to teach. This book is a five star experience. I consume it in small bites.

    The book was an absolutely AWESOME, inspiring, motivational read! I couldn't wait to pick it up daily to get the wisdom nuggets Oprah gave in each Chapter. I never read books twice but this one is defiantly a must read again! Thanks Oprah for your transparency, wisdom and years of dedication to humanity❤️

    The book was very informative and helps you take a step back and evaluate your life. I feel a sense of being refreshed and strive to make positive changes in my life and my loved ones since reading this book. It is a quick read but filled with quality advice that everyone can use in their everyday life.

    I'm sad that this book is over this book literally CHANGED MY LIFE!!!!! Newly divorced with a 2 year old daughter... Mothering full time, Working full time, and running a business full time! I needed time out for myself to renew and refresh my soul and this BLESSED MY SOUL ABUNDANTLY! I've always loved Oprah and wanted to be on her show one day--I just felt a connection with her and this made that feeling stronger! Blessed! Life changing! What I know for sure is God has blessed Oprah with a gift and I'm Grateful to God for her and her wisdom!
