And then On May 30, 1997, Oprah Winfrey gave the commence­ment address to Wellesley College, in Wellesley, Massachusetts. “She told the graduates that she’d learned five important lessons that made her life better,” Janet Lowe wrote. Winfrey said:

* Life is a journey. Everyday experiences will teach you who you really are.

* When people show you who they are, believe them the first time. This is especially helpful with men. Don’t force them to beat you over the head with the message.

* Turn your wounds into wisdom. Everyone makes mis­takes. They are just God’s way of telling you you’re moving in the wrong direction.

* Be grateful. Keep a daily journal of the things you are thankful for. It will keep you focused on the abun­dance in your life.

* Create the highest, grandest vision possible for your life because you become what you believe.
