I’m sure you know who Oprah Winfrey is. She’s an actress, tv host, producer, fierce lady boss and one of my hero’s. She hosted The Oprah Winfrey show for 25 years, and she’s helped me find my purpose. In this blog, I’ll tell you all about how she did that.
The Oprah Winfrey Show
As a child, I loved watching The Oprah Winfrey Show. In her show, she often had guests who had a life issue. She’d help them get clarity on their problems by saying all kinds of smart and wise things.
Every day after school, I’d watch the Oprah Winfrey Show. I admired Oprah for her knowledge and wisdom. Also, I thought that it was so cool that she was changing people’s lives on her show. I soaked up all the tips and tricks that she gave everyone and tried to apply them in my own tiny life.
(I of course also loved all
the episodes where she was like: ‘you get a car, and you get a car and you get
a car”. But that is not the point J.)
The thing that I loved the most about Oprah and her show, was that she was changing people’s lives and their take on life. With her advice, she was helping people be better versions of themselves. She helped the people in her show, but also the millions of viewers at home.
Your heroes are your heroes for a reason
The fact that I was watching Oprah Winfrey as a young girl, was a clear indication that I’m also meant to help people. I truly believe that your heroes are your heroes for a reason. They show you the path that you’re also meant to walk.
When I was feeling lost and confused about what I was meant to do in life, I asked myself who I admired and why. I realized that I had always loved Oprah Winfrey. It was because she was so inspiring and helpful. She changed people’s lives for the better. I wanted to do that too. I realized that I admired her because we have a similar path.
We’re both on this earth to help people get in touch with what they’re meant to do. Oprah Winfrey has even published two books about finding your purpose in the past years! Speaking about having the same path!
Through my interest and admiration for Oprah Winfrey, I was able to find out what my Soul Purpose is, and now I can help other millennial women uncover theirs. How amazing is that?!
Who do you admire?
Maybe you also have someone that you looked up to as a child. Or you currently admire someone dearly. Ask yourself why that is. Who knows it might even lead you to your Soul Purpose!
Now, I’d like to hear from you: who did you admire as a child and why?
