Oprah Winfrey - Oprah Winfrey Thinks Anything Is Possible

Oprah Winfrey believes she can do anything.

The TV talk host has her own TV channel and says she enjoys the freedom it gives her because she can make her own dreams come true as well as other people's.

She said: "The great benefit of having your own channel is that you can be walking down the street. The other day I was in a restaurant, and there was the most handsome waiter. I was like, 'Well, what are you interested in doing? You have a very good TV face.' I look at everything. If I have an idea, it feels like a huge paint box. So I have moved from 'Oh my God, what am I going to do?' to 'I can do anything.' "

Although she is the most successful woman on TV, Oprah still accepts some of her projects may failure but she doesn't look at it as a bad thing.

She told Parade magazine: "What will be a failure is if nobody comes and watches this network. What others will perceive as failure is if some shows don't succeed. I'm concerned about the bigger overall picture: my belief that people are basically good and want to see the good in them reflected through their experiences and the shows that they watch. This is a Gamble I'm taking. I believe that the banal state of television, the kind of insipid space that we're in - that you can have as many channels as we have and not find anything that really interests you - means that to a great extent we've lost our way."
