Wisdom of Sundays Book Contest
“We have what we need to fulfill our destiny. But I do think that we have to bring it out. And you can’t bring it out being against yourself.”
– Joel Osteen
Attention Book Lovers 🙂
I have been meaning to pick up a copy of Oprah Winfrey’s recent book, The Wisdom of Sundays; Life-Changing Thoughts from Super Soul Conversations, for several months. When I was in Ashland, Oregon a few weeks ago, I finally bought the book. It is excellent!
Here are a few snippets from the book that resonated with me:
“Every right decision I’ve ever made has come from listening to my gut. Every wrong decision was a result of me dismissing the small, still voice within me.”
– Oprah Winfrey
“Everything comes up so it can be healed.”
– Gabrielle Bernstein
“If you’re in a situation that is pressing on you…ask empowering questions. The Universe will answer these questions in a language and in a way that you can understand. There will be inter-prompting, there will be intuitive hits, nudges, signs, symbols, dreams. It’ll come in the language of the individual soul and heart.”
– Michael Bernard Beckwith
“You’re never angry for the reason you think you are.”
– Iyanla Vanzant
“When you acknowledge and are grateful for whatever you have, it allows more to be drawn to you and changes the way you experience life.”
– Oprah Winfrey
“Trade your expectation for appreciation. Your whole life changes in that moment.”
– Tony Robbins
“Are you substituting busyness and all the chaos that goes along with busyness for being effective?”
– Bishop T.D. Jakes
