“It’s great to have a Private Jet” – Oprah Winfrey

You’ll agree with me that there are secrets to success, there are joys of success, so there are pains of success too. But what are  Oprah’s views?

According to Oprah, among the joys of success is the pleasure of owning a mansion and a private jet.

During a speech to Duke University’s graduating class, Oprah talked about these secrets and joys of success.

It’s great to have a nice home. It’s great to have nice homes!…” she told the students. “It’s great to have a private jet. Anyone that tells you that having your own private jet isn’t great is lying to you.”

For her,  flying in a private jet is one of the great material perks that money can buy. (Apparently Oprah’s ride is a $42 million custom-build Global Express XRS built by Bombardier Aerospace).

However, more importantly, she went on to explain that  “you haven’t completed the circle of success until you help someone else move to a higher ground and get to a better place.”

Oprah thinks it’s great to have a private jet if you can afford it, but then, she also thinks it’s necessary to help other people succeed. What do you think?
