Oprah Winfrey Leaves the Audience SPEECHLESS | One of the Best Motivational Speeches Ever

[Music] everybody is feeding yourself on the hysteria and the negativity you gotta stay in the light but one of the reasons why i was so excited is about a wrinkle in time because the message is that the darkness is spreading so fast these days you must become a warrior of the light and the reason that's so meaningful to me is because that's how i've led my whole life for these times the darkness is there to show you your light look at what has happened so if you put the focus on look at what happened with the darkness that showed up in parkland and the darkness that showed up on the streets of ferguson the darkness that showed up in many many many many many many homes in chicago with shootings and uh senseless murders it brings out the best in people it brings out the best and so that's what it's there we live on a planet where there is darkness and light i deeply believe is not that do unto others as you would have them do unto you what you do is already done that moment in the color purple where she says everything you ever try to do to me already done to you so the law the third law of motion in physics says that what you're putting out is coming back all the time regardless of whether you know it or acknowledge it or not i say to the my girls all of the time that your real work is to figure out where your power base is and to work on the alignment of your personality your gifts that you have to give with the real reason why you're here that's that's the number one thing you have to do is to work on yourself and to fill your self up and keep your cup full keep yourself full now i used to be afraid of that i used to be afraid particularly from people who say oh she said she's still fella hassan she's so close herself and now i embrace it i i consider it a compliment that i am full of myself because you only when you're full i'm full i'm overflowing my cup runneth over i have so much i have so much to offer and so much to give and i am not afraid of honoring myself you know it's miraculous when you think about it my life is fueled by my being and the being fuels the doing so i come from a centered place i come from a focused place i come from compassion i come from a willingness to understand and to be understood and i come from wanting to to connect i mean the secret of that show for 25 years is that people could see themselves in me all over the world they could see themselves in me and even as i became more and more financially successful which was a big surprise to me i was like oh my god this is so exciting but what i realized is through the whole process because i'm grounded in my own self that although i could have more shoes my feet stayed on the ground although i was wearing better shoes these are kind of cute today too so i could keep my feet on the ground even though i could get more shoes and i could understand i could understand that it really was because i was grounded i've done the was doing and continue to this day to do the consciousness work i work at staying awake the reason why i was number one for 25 years is because i figured out early on there is no story anybody has ever heard that somebody else hasn't experienced nothing and i also figured out probably maybe the first or second year that all pain is the same that a mother in somalia feels the same way as a mother in seattle when she loses her child and the common denominator in the human experience is our emotions and our feelings and the more vulnerable and open you are willing to be with your story the more actual understanding you create with other people and the more powerful you become people don't think less of you for sharing your story they think more of you for having the courage to share it what inspired me was an is continues to be what continues to inspire me is a primal and fundamental desire to fulfill the highest expression of myself as a human i don't want to die not having completely burnt out every single possibility of my humanity i just i just want to when when i leave this planet i want everybody did that used it all up not another thing i could do there wasn't another person i could have given of myself to there wasn't another deed i could have done there wasn't anything that you just wanted you want to say i want to fill it up you want to take this whole human existence which when you think about it godfrey is really pretty damn miraculous it is it is it is when you think about what it means to be a human being on the planet earth right now that's pretty awesome so i just wanna i wanna i wanna take that to the max i wanna say no need to come back as a human the day first day i went to school i was in a classroom by the time i was uh you know six years old didn't go to school i was six years old because i lived my grandmother that time sure but she had taught me how to read read the bible bible stories so i went into the classroom knowing nicodemus shadrach meshach and abednego i could spell all of those words i thought i was you know i was preaching to the to my kindergarten teacher so she was like who is this girl so i was never placed in an environment where i was ever made to feel inferior i always felt like i'm the smartest kid in this room and because i was never placed and never put in a position where i was made to feel less than i didn't grow up feeling less than you know and the rest as they say is history and the rest they say is history and it's all about what you believe you know i say this to uh when i do something on my network now call life class the fundamental key to success is what you believe is true for yourself not what you want not what you desire is what do you believe you know you can say i want to i want to be the most successful person in the world but if you believe that there's a glass ceiling and you're going to have a hard time kicking through that glass ceiling you will be defined by the glass ceiling and the great beauty and gift of my life is that i was never defined by the box that other people tried to put me in [Music] the energy of your intention is what determines your life most people don't think about their intention they just think about what they want to do most people don't think about why they want to do it but what's going to come back to you the energy that's going to come back to you is the real why of why you did it what drives you to keep working so hard you could you know you and i are in the 60s category and so when you're in your 60s you know you've lived more than you're going to live yeah realistically so when you realize you've lived more than you're going to live you can say why not relax a little bit why not just ease up why have you decided to even work harder than you did before because i think david that everybody you know the thing that works for me all these years whether it was the magazine or which i still have or whether it was the show i could i understood that there's a common denominator in the human e
