An Evening with Oprah
Have you ever seen Oprah live? There is nothing like it! I’ll share with you my experience. Two days before the live Oprah event, my wife Lien, and I entered and won a pair of tickets to, “An Evening with Oprah” at the Scotiabank Saddledome.
We did not win nose bleed seats, we won floor seats and each ticket was valued at $400 a piece. We were lucky to win this amazing opportunity to see an icon, amazing speaker, person of influence and ambassador to the world, Oprah Winfrey.
As you can imagine the seats were awesome! The crowd was buzzing and was ready to see the queen of day time talk come take the stage.
As Oprah hit the stage she was wearing one of Alberta’s and the City of Calgary’s most recognizable symbols. The Stampede Cowboy Hat! The crowd erupted just like you’d expect. What a great showman. Wild cheering when on for five minutes. She had the crowd right where she wanted us and there was no turning back from the amazing evening ahead.
Oprah started the evening by telling everyone her story. Where she came from and what she went through. How she grew up and overcame life’s circumstances. All the good she saw and experienced. The bad things she had to endure as she was growing up.
She explained how she went from radio to becoming a news anchor and then the ultimate, having her own talk show! Then she explained how she decided to start her own network. The OWN network is one of the most recognizable networks on television now.
As the evening when on Oprah brought out an Canadian icon George Strombolopolous to do a Q and A with the talk show queen.
The evening continued as George asked Oprah questions and she answered them. The talk sounded scripted but none the less the insight Oprah’s words provided was amazing.
Throughout the evening Oprah had some awesome words and questions that would make you reflect on your own life. Word and questions like, “Why are you here? Finding this answer is the ultimate question.”
Another sentence that stands out is, “That little voice is where we are all equal, the voice speaks to us equally.”
What does that voice say to you? Does it tell you to help people when they are in need? Does it tell you to get your freedom and pursue the life you want to live? Check out this post about getting your freedom.
Questions Oprah Asked
As Oprah talked I could not help but fee she was talking to me only. Her voice resonate within me. Much of what she was saying lined up with Eckhart Tolle books, “A New Earth” and “The Power of Now“.
I have read the books and have listened to the 10 week class, which went reviewed the book chapter by chapter. Oprah conducted the talk with Eckhart Tolle.
As I listened to Oprah tell her story and later answering question’s by George Strombolopolous, I wrote these 10 questions down.
- What is the calling for my life?
- How do I defines me?
- What attributes connect me to my purpose?
- What does the voice inside me say to myself?
- Want do I believe about myself?
