Who is using you?

Oprah Winfrey recently recounted at Smith College the story of the time when she found her TV show was being used by the Ku Klux Klan for their own recruitment purposes!  From that day onward, she vowed NEVER to be used again, by anyone, for anything.

Instead, she committed to using her show to shifting towards being useful, to giving service.  In the video below, she gives her full speech, and I thought it was pretty moving. Take a look…

“Knowing WHY you want to do something, not just doing it. Understanding the intention of the doing could also change the paradigm”

What paradigm could you change in a similar way?  Remember, “what got you here will not get you there”!
