The three things that I want to leave with you just these 3 things I could do 10 I could do whole life class but just these three things will carry you if you let them first and foremost.
knowing who you are being able to answer this question who am I what do I want. you know many times when I go out of the country I am baffled by that question to explain what is your occupation as today for 10 minutes well am I more than a talk show host? am I business women? I am business women I am more than a business women am I entrepreneur? or more than entrepreneur so why just leave it blank or self employed some not asking for the roads that you play as daughters I am not asking that question what are the roles that you play as daughter as a friend as a sister you gonna be a lawyer you going to teach you going to be a pharmacist as he the bigger question of who am I who am I really why my answer is I am a gods child. I am.
I am that which is born of all that. I am spiritual I am a spiritual being having human experience come telling that breath of the ancestors yet but trailing the breath of the angels and and understanding that because I am connected to the source of all that is all that is possible if possible for me that's why I am and what do I want I don't want to just be successful in the world.
I don't want to just make a mark and have a legacy the answer to the question from years I want to fulfill the highest tourist expression of myself as a human being I want to fulfill the promise that the creator dream while making the cells that made up me. what do I want you must have some kind of vision for your life even if you don't know the plan you have to have a direction in which you choose to go I never was the kind of women who like to get my car and just go for a ride I had a boyfriend would say let's just go for a ride I want to know where are we going do we have less nation is there a plan or we just right what I have learnt is that's a great metaphor for life you want to be in driver's seat of your own life because if you're not life will drive you sir knowing who you really are in the space and time that we embody that's number 1 what do you want.
who are you you must find a way to answer Martin Luther King said that not everybody can be famous but everybody can be great because greatness is determined by service . Now we live in a world where everybody wants to be famous and where we admire people for just being famous question mark with think being known brings has value the truth is all that will fade in time in 3 years you won't be able to name the housewives a banana.

Service using the spoken word in service to community in the world using your knowledge information about HIV and AIDS and medicine and service to the world enable if and if you look at all the most successful people in the world water whether they know it or not they have that paradigm of service everybody is talking about Mark Zuckerberg,and I appeal service Daisy Rapid service through the word two people through songs for many years I was really just happy to be on TV and people would stop and so you on TV Yaman TV arriving on TV it's a nice dog and it was about the time they receive my honorary doctorate from spellman around 1993 so I don't know if if that had something to do with it. I thought of myself as dr Winfrey driving back and I took long look at what it was I was doing on on TV and then made a decision that I was no longer going to be just be on TV but I was going to use TV as a platform as a force for good and not be used to be on TV .
