Leadership 101

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you’ll know that the last Oprah Winfrey show aired just last week. After twenty-five years as the queen of the talk shows, Oprah Winfrey has gone on to create something new.

Your Labor Of Love Can Bloom Beyond Your Imagination

Often we start out with our business or project as a labor of love, and we cannot see where it will eventually end up – or even dream how big it could possibly become. I’m sure that when Oprah Winfrey started out with her talk show, she had no idea that one day she would first become not only the queen of talk shows, but would become a brand in herself and a worldwide household name.

Golden Dragons Support Others

With great power comes great responsibility – that’s been said and it is true, and she has stepped up fully to that responsibility by creating her own network and providing a new platform to help others bring their messages to the world. This is the very essence of what it means to be a Golden Dragon.

Oprah’s stage was a place for people to be seen and to be heard. For authors who were chosen for her book club, it was an opportunity for them to suddenly be seen by millions of people. They often saw themselves becoming household names almost overnight. Despite the good she did for so many others however, what Oprah had created with her show was really based around Oprah , and anyone else was simply a guest on the Oprah show.

Golden Dragons Evolve And Grow

She knew that it had to change, and so both she and it has evolved beyond that in order to create a platform for many others to now step into the spotlight with their gifts. First it was Dr.Phil, now Nate Berkus, and how many more will Oprah’s legacy provide the platform for? She has used her power, her wealth, and her influence to serve others and to help others become more – and that, my friend, is the very essence of being a Golden Dragon.
