Be Grateful for What You Have; Don’t Focus on What You Don’t Have

Oprah Gail Winfrey (born 1954), former host to the highly-rated The Oprah Winfrey Show (1986-2011), currently chairwoman and CEO of Harpo Productions and the Oprah Winfrey Network, major owner of Weight Watchers, is considered one of the wealthiest and greatest African-American philanthropists. Forbes has estimated her net worth at $3.0 billion. Winfrey transformed the talk show genre by focusing the discussions around literature (she introduced the Oprah’s Book Club which revolutionized the book industry), self-improvement, and spirituality. Winfrey consistently appears on lists of the “most powerful or influential women in the world.” She was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2013 and has honorary doctorate degrees from Harvard University and Duke University.
