Winfrey believes that living a happy and successful life comes down to 4 simple things.

Here is some advice from Oprah Winfrey on how to feel more confident, find your purpose, make other people feel special, and live with intention.


Oprah believes that finding your passion and purpose is key to realising your fulfillment and satisfaction and living your best life.

According to IncAfrica Winfrey’s personal success and fulfillment came from finding her true purpose and passion, and using her platform to be of service. 

“Don’t worry about being ‘successful.’ Strive for the truest, highest expression of yourself… and then use that expression in service to the world.” Winfrey said, per IncAfrica.

“If the paradigm for which you see the world is, ‘How can I be of service with my talent? How can I be used in service?’ then I guarantee you, no matter what your talent or offering, you will be successful.” she said.


Winfrey appears to ooze confidence and she believes that confidence comes not from strength, but from vulnerability.

“Most people think vulnerability is weakness. I live in the space of vulnerability… and that is what has made me so successful.” Winfrey said. 

“I think vulnerability is… the cornerstone of confidence. Allow yourself to take the risk, to be open, to live as a whole-hearted person. Do that, and you recognize that you’re just like everybody else, and that gives you the confidence to be yourself.” she says.


Oprah says that we need to be clear on what we are doing. Clearly understanding our intentions and stating our intentions makes it easier to stick to our intentions. 

However, clarity is something you have to seek. You can only find clarity, and gain focus, if you actively search for them. You can apply this approach to nearly everything in your personal and professional life.

Clarity is key for Winfrey. IncAfrica says that Winfrey always starts meetings with three key questions:

  • “What is our intention for this meeting?”
  • “What’s important?”
  • “What matters?”


Everyone wants to feel like what they say and do makes a difference and has meaning.

Throughout her years of interviewing people, Oprah has gained exceptional listening skills.  The Queen of Talk believes that people want to feel special and valued.

“What I started to hear was that what people are really saying was: ‘Did you hear me, and did what I say mean anything to you?” Winfrey said. 

“And so I started to listen with that in mind, with that intention of validating that your being here, your speaking to me… is important because you matter.” she says.
