Oprah Winfrey was the closing speaker at Essence Festival 2016’s Empowerment Stage on July 2, where she told a captivating story about the six trees she thought would spell success.

‘I used to dream the dream driving through the white peoples’ neighborhoods. You’d see their fancy houses. Sometimes they had gates, but all of them had trees,’ Winfrey told the packed Essence Fest crowd – according to Nola.com.

‘I thought, “Oh, rich people have trees. Some people want pocketbooks and cars, but I want me some trees.” About three years ago, I was sitting in my kitchen window, making coffee in the morning and I saw the six trees.’
