Oprah's Lifeclass Lesson 25 : "You've Always Had the Power"


I am grateful that i have attended Oprah's Lifeclass (Season 1) through webcast. I have learned some life lessons from the show on every topic that she have discussed every session. Below are some of the questions that i have pondered on the Lifeclass by Oprah.


1. You have the power—and the responsibility—to make your life better. How will you own that power?

I believe that i possess some powers that are inherent or acquired and i use that power to be in control of my life because i believe that i am responsible for shaping my life and whom i will become in the future. I must be able to preserve this power and continue to hone it and use it wisely for my own benefit.

2. Who would you be, and what would you do, if you had no fearful beliefs?

I would have become a great speaker or writer should i have gained enough confidence and had no fears and doubts.

3. Look at your life: This is a portrait of your beliefs. What is beautiful about it? What's troubling? What will you change—because you can?

What's beautiful about my life is the presence and the support of my family and friends. They are always supportive of my dreams and goals and they serve as my inspiration to move forward despite of adversities that comes my way. What's troubling me is my fear and doubt of my capabilities and the use of my power. Sometimes i feel that i am not enough, not capable and incompetent. Since i believe that i can do something if i trust myself, then i have to move out of my comfort zone and start to renew my life so i will be able to achieve my dreams and attain success in life.


4. How do you define "success"? What has truly made you happy in the past? Are you pursuing your version of success, or someone else's? Can you choose yours?

Success is the attainment of my goal or dream may it be simple or ambitious. My previous accomplishments has made me truly happy both in my personal life and career. I follow my own version of success and at the same time i also follow other success coach because i can learn a lot from their wise ideas and they are more accomplished people. I can choose to go with my own definition of success and also with my success coach life lessons.

5. Describe your highest hopes. Now ask, "What would be better"? Keep asking this until you can't imagine anything better. That's your new dream.

My highest hopes is to become somebody who is respected and expert in my field of expertise and to become a better person who has achieved and proven something.

6. How are you going to sustain your hope and faith when times get tough? Do you have a plan in place for nurturing yourself in the moments your faith wavers?

When times get tough i have to remain strong and believe in myself. I should never give up but instead i have to rise up from where i have fallen.. I must be able to move on since life is indeed a cycle, there are moments in life that i feel down and sometimes i feel good. Life is good so i have to live my greatest life.

7. Do you still define success according to how much stuff you have, or how admired you are? Notice that this is the ego's definition. Gently put it aside, and notice what your spirit defines success.

Success is not only defined or measured by material possessions but by the quality of life that you're living at the present. I have to ask myself, am i the same person now as compared to 3 years ago or even 3 months ago? have i gained valuable virtues and values and learned from my lifes' lesson? Am i truly a renewed person? or am i living my greatest life? Then, if the answer is yes, i could say that i am successful person.


8. What's one step you can take toward your vision of a fully realized life? Is there one small thing that’s part of your ideal future that you can take today?

To be able to achieve my highest ideals and aspirations, i have to renew my life in all aspects and hold on with virtues and values as they are integral part of my success. I think one of the factor of future success is to benevolent and that is the virtue that i would like to practice today. I have learned that sharing is good thing to do and it will bring back something good to me in any way on the future. I may never know what the future shall bring, but i can predict on it as to what i do in the present.

9. What's the most important thing you've learned over these 25 lessons?

I have learned that life is truly worth living and fighting for. Life may be full of adversities, but i should not take it as a hindrance but i should take it as a challenge to fight for. Life is good and i must never give up hence, to do my very best. I am blessed in life
and i must be a blessing to others also.

I am looking forward for the 2nd season, early next year for another knowledgeable and inspiring life lessons. The lessons that i have learned are valuable for my values formation and for creating the kind of life that i deserve. Everyday is a journey and i must live on the present, learn from the past and prepare for my future.
