Oprah’s Lifeclass on Gratitude 


“Focus on what you have and you will always have more” ~ Oprah.

Five years ago today, my sister-in-law and I saw Oprah live when she brought her Lifeclass to Toronto, Canada. As a lifelong Oprah fan, this was a dream come true. Only when Lifeclass began did we know that the theme would be gratitude. I knew immediately we were meant to be there. 

I reflected back on my notes from the Lifeclass on Gratitude and share a bit of my food for thought with you. 

* Gratitude Journal – What five things are you thankful for everyday. Power in the words.

* Change your state of being and start to be grateful. 

* You see your life as a gift. Look for the blessing.

* Gratitude – you can change your contentious. If you are thankful for what you have, you will always have more. Life in the present. Embrace the now. 

* PAIN – Iyanza Vazant – Pay Attention Inward. Get grateful in all paths along life. Each stop will teach us along the way. Pay attention to how we respond to the stop.

* Gratitude – We cannot be grateful and hateful simontanously.   

* Giving thanks helps you connect to what you deserve ~ Tony Robbins

* Wherever there is appreciation, there is duplication. ~ Bishop James

* Gratitude = abundance ~ Deepak Chopra

* Gratitude can be a lifesaver when you do not have anything else. 

* Change the story from pain to a gift

* You get what you tolerate. Change your story. ~ Tony Robbins

* When you are a giver, you will always have gratitude 

* Operate from a new belief life happens not to me but for me. If you have been down that road, you can reach people that others cannot. Share your story ~ Tony Robbins 

* Everyone’s story is either an absolutely warning or an example. 

* Everything we go for, we learn something ~ Bishop T.D. Jakes

* The energy and attitude you bring to your past and how you describe it. ~ Oprah 

* Saint and sinner exchanging notes. Use our keys to open up our prisons and to do something great to escape. Who you are matters and gives people HOPE.

* Flood yourself with positive moments. Give them an experience 

* “Live to give” – I am more than my circumstances ~ Tony Robbins

* Attention, Appreciation, Affection – ways to give to children ~ Deepak Chopra

* Energy you bring to the room – your presence is enough ~ Iyanza Vanzant

* I am the universe – infinite potential

* Best lesson on gratitude – go back into your own life where you can be more grateful and appreciative 

* All is a gift. Hope you can leave here and rethink how you see your life. 

* Clear understanding others are teachers – appreciate people everyday 

* Whatever I seed will grow. 

* Your inner vision makes your special.

* Always remember everything connects to gratitude. 

Grateful I had the opportunity to enjoy this special day and thankful it has kept me focused on finding gratitude in the simple joys of life. 

What are you grateful for?
