Good Quote by Oprah Winfrey



"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
(1954 - ...)
Coming from poor surroundings and being sexually abused at young age, Oprah Winfrey was ranked as the world's most influential woman and the richest African American of the 20th century. She won the Miss Black Tennessee beauty pageant and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, but it is through her talk show "Oprah Winfrey Show" that her influence has been greatest. The talk show has influenced and inspired people not only in television but also in society in general. Popular as talk show host, she started her own production company, founded "O, The Oprah Magazine", established "Oprah & Friends" radio channel, launched "Oprah.com" website , and started "Oprah Book Club". She is making more and more money from her many business.

FW:
How many of us never satisfy with our own life and always ask for more ?
Do you feel that your current income and your saving are not enough, always have a lot of needs to be fulfilled ? Do you want to have a more expensive thing (e.g. house, car, hand phone, shoes, etc) even though you've already had one (or even more than ones :P) ? Do you envy other's family/status/achievement and expect his/hers is yours ? Stop complaining now, stop focusing on what you don't have and be grateful for what you have. I'm sure you have lot of things to be thanked for. Thank for your healthy body, your lovely family, your good friends, your comfortable house, your happy memories, your talent, your ability, your peaceful mind, and lot of other things. Just think what your are most grateful for in your life and you know your life is blessed :)

This becomes easier and easier to do as we age. At least that's been my experience. :-)

That's true....so we should be grateful for what we have and we should acknowledge our God because He is our provider. Without him, where do we get our strength, our ability and our opportunities to attain what we have.

Great Article. I personally made my own Daily calendar sheet template in Publisher and added a box for "Today's Gratitude Journal"...it is great for me because I can just add a snippet or two to my journal entry and it gives me the opportunity to document daily what I am grateful...the moment or two of comtemplation for that exercise is grounding and rewarding.

It is difficult to think this way when one has been accustomed to so many material things. It is only when people experience or suffer some form of loss that they start to get the epiphany of their lives. Maybe, because there is no choice or a miracle happens and wham! And the realization - there's so much already to begin with.

Cheers!

We should work hard in anything or work that given to us as a responsibility. To get extra income also is a responsibility in the end we can give our family the best. And at last, the extra that we got we should give back to the needed as sign of thankful...

every material things is vanity. If we focussed on those things its useless and endless. Contentment and following GOD's way of life are the key to have a happy life.

Yes money gives power but such can also destroy.
