Mindful Monday: Oprah’s Inspirational Stanford GSB Interview

Oprah's Stanford GSB Interview

I spend a lot of time on YouTube, and my favorite YouTube channels are those that feature inspirational content. I recently came across a video that Stanford’s Graduate School of Business posted where they interviewed Oprah and asked her questions about her life, her career, and what she is up to now. Here is the full interview:

I was only five minutes into watching the interview when I just had to add it to my favorites. I busted out my favorite notebook and started taking notes. I highly recommend watching this interview. Don’t be put off by the long length of the video. You’ll be hooked on her every word and the time will fly by. Here are some of my favorite quotes from Oprah in the interview:

  • “There is no doing without being.”
  • “Be fueled by your contributions to the world.”
  • On deciding how she would pursue her career: “I will not be used by television, I will use television.”
  • “Choose how to use your platform.”
  • “You don’t have anything to give that you don’t have” [My Favorite]

Oprah is a prime example of someone who follows her intuition and who uses the Law of Attraction. Even when she gets things “wrong,” she knows that every experience is an opportunity to learn and grow and she learns her lesson and keeps it moving.

There are so many inspirational Oprah videos on YouTube. I also highly recommend checking out her video from her Masters Class episode where she talks about how she got the role of Sophia in the movie “The Color Purple.” It so inspiring!

Comment Below: What were your favorite parts of the interview? Who else in TV or entertainment do you look to for inspiration?

Abundance is a tricky word. When you typically think of abundance, you associate it with finances and money. However, abundance can appear in many forms. For today’s Mindful Monday, we are focusing on how to recognize abundance when you see it and then learn how to accept it. As I’ve touched on before in other posts, the Law of Attraction is very real, and “like attracts like.” If you don’t accept abundance when it comes to you, the Universe will say, “Oh ok. You already have enough! No problem. We will send the abundance to someone else.” Be open to receiving and you’ll see more abundance flow your way. Here’s an example from my own life. It just happens to be a financial example, but I’ll give more examples of other ways of how abundance can show up at the end of the post. Continue reading
