Hate Mondays? So, What Are You Going to Do About It?

This week marks 30 years since the first broadcast of The Oprah Winfrey Show on US TV. And, it remains the highest-rated talk show in American television history.

Dubbed the “Queen of All Media”, Oprah Winfrey famously went from poverty to a $3 billion fortune, and is regarded by some to be the most influential woman in the world!

So, what can we take from Oprah’s rag-to-riches success as we start work on yet another work week?

Have the courage to create your dream career despite obstacles – Oprah knew she wanted to get into broadcasting, she left college early, and went on to become the first black female news anchor before she was 20.

Be authentic: Oprah’s ground-breaking professional yet “emotional ad-lib delivery” saw audiences warm to her, and helped take the Chicago AM show from last to first place ratings within months of starting the job. The Oprah Winfrey Show was born!

Identify and take good opportunities: Oprah takes every opportunity she believes is necessary to achieve her goals. From hosting a talk show, to acting, to bringing her company online Oprah ventures into the unknown or reinvents herself when the right opportunity comes knocking.

Ask how you can be of service: Not just for hotel staff, asking how you can be of service to others (internally!) through your career can give you a sense of meaning and focus even when the chips are down – remember even Oprah’s been fired!

As Oprah says:

“You become what you believe. You are where you are today in your life based on everything you have believed.”
