Oprah appeals to me because her success speaks to the Big Idea that family discipline is mandatory in order to accomplish what one sets out to do and plan to help others. Family may be the team you belong to as we travel along the way. I believe her Big Idea is and has always been helping others. Oprah has received many blessings due to her generosity. It is inspiring to see her success, I have seen many things in my lifetime and her success is at the top of my list of my favorite things. I like that future generations will pattern themselves after the examples she set. She is a pioneer, then quickly raises the bar.
The questions I might like to ask her are how have you been able to stay convicted over these many years? Tell me Oprah, what would you like to tell the youth in the African American communities though out the USA? As a future teacher, what suggestions might you have to utilize your many successes to lead and encourage the next generation of leaders?
For my final project, I plan to dig a little deeper to identify some of Oprah's most basic skills and her source of power to assist and empower me for a most powerful project. For instance, she is well spoken, intelligent, quick on her feet with questions and responses. Also, she has a strong constitution to back up her confidence, she is fearless and just steps out on faith.
