Oprah Winfrey is one of the most successful Americans to have ever lived. She is an actress, hosts a highly rated television show that bears her name, and has her own best selling magazine. When Oprah speaks everyone listens. When she recommends a product, folks buy it.
Oprah Winfrey is a billionaire. Oprah has had to fight hard for what she has. She was born in a backwater village in rural Mississippi. She fought her way through racism, rejection, sexual molestation, juvenile delinquency, and out of wedlock childbirth.
How did Oprah Winfrey overcome these obstacles? She has said, "Failure is really the Almighty's way of saying, 'Excuse me, you're moving in the wrong direction." In other words, the way out of trouble is to get on the right road - now.
