Oprah is a Savage Daughter!

Have you ever thought that you just lived the same year twice? Noticing that you are in the same place today as you were last year or the year before? I swear I am going into year TWO of feeling like this, I can't be alone.

"You are responsible for your life." -Oprah Winfrey

I had repeated the same problems, my challenges only seem to be more challenging, my thought process started to feel like a "you're crazy" GIF. Just looping over and over and over.

Total deja-vu, so much had changed. So much was different - yet everything was the same… I had been working like crazy, putting in a crazy amount of hours but nothing was different than it was the year before. There was no growth and nothing had improved. It was time for a change.

When I realized this, in that pivotal moment, I realized that it wasn’t that I was not working hard enough but because I had not been taking 100% responsibility for my life.

It’s a powerful lesson that Oprah says she learned at an early age. If you want to move forward in life, only you can make it happen by taking responsibility. Watch below as Oprah shares her story.
