BRADES, Montserrat – Entertainment and Intellectual Property attorney Warren Cassell’s book on the 40 success habits of media maven Oprah Winfrey, hits bookstores on Tuesday.
O’Habits: 40 Success Habits of Oprah Winfrey and the One Bad Habit She Needs to Stop! is the first book by the Montserrat national and is now available on amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.
According to Cassell, who owns Cassell & Lewis law offices on Montserrat, after watching thousands of hours of the Oprah Winfrey Show, reading just about every issue of O magazine, and other books about the most successful woman in the media, he began to formulate the idea for the book.
“Brian Tracy, one of America’s foremost authorities on developing peak performance and individual achievements, notes that “the most important discovery in the field of psychology and success is that fully 95 percent of everything that you think, feel, do and achieve is the result of habit”. There a lot of people who write about Oprah but there was no literature that looked at the specific steps or habits she adopts that enabled her to be so successful,” explained the author. “I wanted to examine what has made Oprah as successful as she is in a way that others could pattern and practice in their daily lives regardless of their professional or personal needs.”
But nobody – not even Oprah – is perfect, and O’Habits also uncovers an Oprah bad habit too. While she has proven to be an excellent mentor among her own gender, many men find Oprah….well…just plain intimidating. Says Cassell, who is an admitted Winfrey devotee, “I was and continue to be inspired by Oprah, but I would love to see her reach out more to the male audience.”
“Men can learn a lot from Oprah, not just about how to better run their businesses, but also how to run their lives and become better husbands, fathers, and global citizens,” says Cassell himself a successful talk show host.
For more than 20 years Oprah Winfrey has been an integral part of the lives of millions of television viewers around the globe. Oprah provides a panoramic worldview to the masses – from diet crazes to international tragedies, couch-jumping actors to world leaders – Oprah has informed, entertained, and influenced. Covering an enormous range of topics: adultery to Apartheid; gay rights, civil rights, women’s rights, and animal rights; politics and prose; celebrity and controversy, Oprah Winfrey has set the bar high.
But as extraordinary – if not more so – as the popularity and power of her talk show, is the power of the persona herself. Oprah Winfrey leaves behind a legacy; one that has motivated a race, empowered a gender, and inspired humanity to make the world a better place one act of kindness at a time. She is renowned as one of the most influential people of the millennium, and her influence has impacted not only public opinion and pop culture, but individual lifestyles worldwide.
In O’Habits: 40 Success Habits of Oprah Winfrey and the One Bad Habit She Needs to Stop!, author Warren Cassell examines the characteristics that have catapulted Oprah to the top, and which readers can adopt so that they too can enjoy a level of success and happiness in business and in life.
