Oprah: What's Your Legacy?

Oprah - Build Your Legacy

Oprah Winfrey says that no amount of money can fill your life with substance, and calls on us to offer ourselves in service and think about the legacy we're building.

Transcript:


"You're nothing if you're not the truth. The biggest reward is not financial benefits, though it's really good, you can get a lot of great shoes. Nothing wrong with great shoes. But, those of you that have a lot of shoes know that having great shoes, and a closet full of shoes, or cars, or houses, or square footage, doesn't fill up your life. It doesn't.

"I go, 'I know, I know, I know that, but I really need to think this school is going to be my greatest legacy.'

"So I go, 'Yes ma'am.'

"She said this and I leave this with everyone in the room, graduates, friends of graduates, family. She said, 'Your legacy is every life you've touched.' Your legacy is every life you've touched. Feel everything with love, because every moment you are building your legacy."
