OPRAH WINFREY: THE MAP
OPRAH WINFREY: THE MAP
How many times have you witnessed someone get close to achieving a goal, only to see it suddenly fall apart? Or they reach the top of the mountain but can’t seem to hold on. Maybe you too have struggled with near-misses and dreams that didn’t quite materialize. Self-sabotage can be a devastating cycle. Oprah believes the variable between winning the race and faltering at the finish line lies with one of the guiding forces in her life: Intention. She says, “Those who sense your truth and your authenticity will rise up to support you. But most importantly you must believe with your whole heart that you are capable of achieving your goal. So first ask yourself Why? What is the real intention? Then ask: How will I execute the action?” In this podcast, Oprah sits down with such legendary spiritual teachers and writers as Gary Zukav, Gabrielle Bernstein, Brené Brown, Stephen Colbert, David Brooks, President Joe Biden (VP at the time) Marianne Williamson, Daniel Pink, Carole Bayer Sager, Cheryl Strayed, Reverend Michael Beckwith, Meagan Good, Devon Franklin, Janet Mock and Goldie Hawn. They share their own personal trajectories and the inner map they followed which led them to the ultimate fulfillment of their dreams. Interviews with these talented writers, speakers and thought leaders are excerpted from Oprah’s Emmy Award-winning show Super Soul Sunday. You can also find this compilation and other insightful conversations, in Oprah’s best-selling book The Path Made Clear.

Stop Interviewing Out-of-Touch Celebrities
Hi Oprah, In your most recent super soul conversations you were hanging out in your garden in Maui interviewing an out of touch celebrity. This celebrity talked about how she was able to move to her second home during the pandemic. She went to the grocery store, did laundry, cooked, and cleaned! Can you believe it?! She talked about how she had time to experiment with new recipes and spend more time with her family. This is a huge privilege for her and many out of touch celebrities. The lower and middle income class are working nonstop, some are working in the public sector and are exposed to Covid-19. While continuing to do the daily tasks of going grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning, taking care of kids. I am a teacher working all the time. I have colleagues who are parents and teachers and they need to make sure their kids are doing online learning successfully while being a good teacher and parent. Please wake up and realize what the rest of the world is going through and stop interviewing celebrities who have had so much time to find themselves in their second vacation home. Thank you.
What a profound podcast Thank you Viola
