I can do anything: Oprah Winfrey
London, Dec 24 (IANS) TV mogul Oprah Winfrey is on a positive streak these days, and has started believing that nothing is impossible.
Now that she has her own TV channel, she enjoys her creative freedom to the hilt, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
‘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.” said Winfrey.
The 56-year-old is ready to face failure with her new channel, and her spirits are high.
‘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.’
