Who is Oprah Winfrey? I heard her name many times, but I didn't know what kind of person she is until I listened to her commencement speech at Stanford University on You Tube. As soon as she appeared on the stage, a cheer went up from the students, and she amused audiences by saying funny jokes. Her talk was very powerful and she immediately swept them along with her. According to Wikipedia, her title is a talk show host, actress, producer and philanthropist.

Here's the passage from her speech I was impressed the most. "And how do you know when you're doing something right? How do you know that? It feels so. What I know now is that feelings are really your GPS system for life. When you're supposed to do something or not supposed to do something, your emotional guidance system lets you know."

I understand what she was saying. All of us can feel whether we are doing the right thing or not. As she mentioned, we should train ourselves to find out what we want to do the most. After listening her speech, I thought she's the most influential opinion leaders in the US.
オプラ ウィンフリーって誰?私はこれまで何度かその名前を聞いたことはあったが、どのような人物なのか、スタンフォード大学の学位授与式でのスピーチをYouTubeで聞くまで知らなかった。彼女がステージに姿を見せるや否や学生の大きな歓声が涌き起こった。そして面白いジョークを言って聴衆を笑わせた。彼女の話は、力強くそして人々の人気を一気にさらった。ウィキペディアによると彼女は、TV番組司会者、女優、プロデューサー、博愛主義者という肩書きを持っている。

以下は、私が彼女のスピーチの中で印象に残った抜粋です。「自分が本当に正しいことをやっているってどうやってわかるの?正しいことをやっている時はそう感じるのよ。今はっきり言えるることは、感情は、私たちの人生におけるGPS (問題解決プログラム) なの。あなたが何かをやるべき時、又はやるべきでない時、あなたの感情を司るシステムがそれを教えてくれるの。」
