When it comes to the most important questions in life, nobody else can find the answers for you.
It is completely an inside job.
This can be difficult to comprehend; because when we feel like we know what our truth is—but then our friends debate us, our family disagrees with us, and overall the external world seems to be telling us something different than what we think we know—it becomes something that is quite easy to start to doubt. And, we start to doubt ourselves.
Here, Oprah tells Colbert that it doesn’t matter if millions of people think she should run for president, because she only listens to her own alignment with God—and if it’s not telling her to run for president, then she isn’t going to do it.
So, when even just a few people disagree with you, just remember Oprah. Even millions of people having an opinion doesn’t sway her. The only thing that gets a say in her life is her own alignment to God and her truth.
Talk about powerful!
