Brought up amidst poverty, racism and sexual abuse, Oprah Winfrey’s journey to success has been nothing short of an inspiration. Here are 4 things the world can learn from this proud black lady:
1.    Self-Reliance
Not many can battle through the hardships of life as Oprah did. From securing a full scholarship in Tennessee University to diving into a TV show format that was not in trend, she wrote her own destiny and so should you.
2.    Stay Optimistic
At the time when many lose hope, she fought. Fought to witness the world changing and respecting the talent she had. Her ultra successful talk show is a testimony that patience pays.
3.    Oratory Skills
If you validate what you speak, people will hear and so, people heard her. Oprah’s excellent speaking skills have helped her run an engaging talk show like the ‘Oprah Winfrey’s Show’ for almost three decades.
4.    Breaking Barriers
Every individual needs to take the onus of responsibility of playing their part right to bring about the change they want to see in the world. Oprah has broken the glass ceiling by escaping the barriers of society and making it big.
