Oprah on Taking Responsibility for Your Life | Oprah's Lifeclass | Oprah Winfrey Network



okay we're here in life class again after last night knowing when you know better you do better we're ready to move on to what I think is another powerful lesson that I started to get when I was a really young girl having been raised by my grandmother and then it's six years old being separated for my grandmother being moved to Milwaukee and suddenly in a foreign environment for myself I remember walking into that new space and recognizing that in many ways I was alone which is a terrible feeling if you're six years old but I have always had the deep understanding for myself that if anything was going to move forward in my life that I was going to have to be responsible for making that happen and I know that to be true now and can articulate it as you are responsible for your life and if you're sitting around waiting on somebody to save you to fix you to even help you you are wasting your time because only you have the power to take responsibility to move your life forward and the sooner you get that the sooner your life gets into gear this is what I know from doing 25 years and thousands and thousands of interviews on The Oprah Show it does not matter where you come from I have seen people come out of the desert walk across the desert being born in the most dire of circumstances doesn't matter what your mama did whether she did or had a PhD or no D what matters is now this moment and your willingness to see this moment for what it is accept it forgive the past take responsibility and move forward
