What I Know for Sure Reviews
O Alto Valor da Simplicidade
Para espanto de muitos, Oprah Winfrey, que certamente terá acesso a tudo ou quase tudo que o dinheiro pode comprar, reserva as suas 5 estrelas para a Simplicidade:
Um pôr do sol na companhia de amigos
Um passeio com os cães a rebolar livremente pela relva
Ler um livro à sombra da sua árvore predilecta
Andar descalça pela relva acabada de aparar
São apenas alguns dos momentos que mais aprecia no seu dia a dia...
Uma leitura que nos leva a reavaliar a Vida!

Beautiful & inspiring.
"What I know for sure is that there is no strength without challenge, adversity, resistance, and often pain".
"Who could I have become if I had finally done the things I always wanted to do".
"The gift of deciding to face your mortality without turning away or flinching is the gift of recognizing that because you will die, you must live now".
”Books, for me, used to be a way to escape. I now consider reading a good book a sacred indulgence, a chance to be any place I choose. It is my absolute favorite way to spend time. What I know for sure is that reading opens you up. It exposes you and gives you access to anything your mind can hold. What I love most about reading: It gives you the ability to reach higher ground. And keep climbing.” One of the quotes I ❤ Hmmmm I wonder why 🤔 ...(hint) books 🤣🤣🙈

I listened to this book on audio because I wanted Oprah's voice in my head to cement the lessons she imparts. It was one of my better ideas. I'll be returning to this wisdom often. Sure, it's everything you've heard before if you're a fan of Oprah, but the advice she offers can't be heard too many times for those of us working to lead a fulfilling life.
Osoba dosljedna sebe... Vrijedi ju "poslusati".
في أحد المقابلات التلفزيونية سألها المذيع: أخبريني ما الشيء الذي تعرفينه على وجه اليقين؟
ليست المرة الأولى التي تخضع فيها للكثير من الأسئلة، ولم يحدث أن وجدت نفسها عاجزة عن الرد تماماً، ولكن كانت هذه المره استثنائية وبسببها ولد هذا الكتاب.
تطرقت أوبرا في هذا الكتاب للأمور التي تعرفها على وجه اليقين من خلال مواقف عاشتها، وأحداث تعرضت لها في حياتها وكانت سبباً في أدراكها للأمور وجعلها ما هي عليه اليوم.
كتاب خفيف وممتع في نفس الوقت، ستتعرف فيه أكثر على هذه الشخصية الملهمة، نقاط ضعفها وكيف حولتها لمصدر ...more
I'm from Chicago, and in Chicago you pay attention to Oprah. In fact I think that's a law in the city. Oprah controlled the local television airwaves in the pre-HD era, and you heard her voice all over the place. In the audiobook for "What I Know for Sure", Oprah narrates, and that was a golden decision. Here you get Oprah's occasional sing-song phrasing that, well, if it didn't make her famous, it came along with her fame. That trademark is used throughout the book. The book is like a summary o ...more
Bueno, este libro me tapó la boca.
No tenía demasiadas esperanzas de encontrar algo interesante, principalmente porque pertenece a dos géneros que muy pocas veces me gustan –autobiografía y autoayuda– pero me encontré sonriendo, pensando mucho con lo que dice, marcando frases como loca y hasta planeando conseguirlo en castellano para regalárselo a mi mamá.
Conocia a Oprah principalmente a traves de series u otros programas de televisión norteamericanos donde la nombraban –siempre como una voz ...more
