At the end of the show, Oprah asks her Master Class guests and many others, “What do you know for sure?” It’s a profound question. What do any of us know for sure? We have a body of thoughts, feelings, emotions and memories of past actions. This collective pool that creates our existence is not always good for us or entirely bad for us. The thoughts, feelings and memories aren’t even accurate. They are convoluted with stories we tell ourselves. These stories, perceptions really, begin to develop the day we’re born based on the situation we were in at the time. The stories helped us get through life as a child but might not be serving us well now. And most of us don’t know we can update them. You can literally update your apps. Change your mind and change your life for the better. Here is what I know for sure at this point….
We are not perfect individuals. No one is better than anyone else. We all have a purpose and a reason for being. The best we need to be is the fulfillment of that individual purpose. And, we are already good enough and everything we need is either with us currently or on its way showing up at exactly the right moment. Living your purpose is both the price and the reward for being here.
