    243. Oprah Shares “The Letter from Glennon that Freed Me”

    enSeptember 21, 2023

    Podcast Summary

    • Revolutionizing industries with solutions to common problems3rd Love transformed bras with half cup sizes and virtual fitting rooms, while Pampers ensured gentle care for babies with Swaddlers diapers and wipes. Oprah found happiness by letting go of attachment through her experience with 'Beloved'.

      Both 3rd Love and Pampers offer solutions to common problems in their respective industries. 3rd Love revolutionized the bra industry with their half cup sizes and virtual fitting room, solving the issues of size exclusivity and guessing what bra fits best. Pampers, on the other hand, provides gentle protective care for babies with their Swaddlers diapers and wipes, ensuring skin health and leak-proof protection. Oprah Winfrey shared her personal experience with detached attachment, a strategy for finding happiness by letting go of attachment to specific outcomes or ideas. In her case, she learned this lesson through the failure of her film "Beloved." Overall, these brands and Oprah's insights emphasize the importance of finding solutions to common problems and learning from experiences to grow and improve.

    • Offering gifts and intentions, letting go of attachmentsFind peace and fulfillment by offering gifts, letting go of expectations, and being present in love with each offering

      Life is about offering gifts and intentions, and letting go of attachments to outcomes. The speaker learned this lesson after creating a movie that didn't reach a large audience, but touched those who received it deeply. She also applied this philosophy to her work with young girls, learning to let go of her expectations for their futures and instead offering them opportunities to grow and succeed in their own ways. The speaker emphasizes the importance of being present and in love with each offering, and then letting go completely, without judgment or expectation. This approach has helped her find peace and fulfillment in her work and relationships.

    • Helping during a crisis: Go directly to the sourceDuring a crisis, the most effective way to help is by going directly to the source and ensuring funds reach those in need efficiently

      During a crisis, the best way to help is by going directly to the source and providing immediate assistance. When the fires hit Maui, the speaker was personally affected and felt the need to help her community. She went to the shelters and asked what people needed, starting with basic necessities like underwear and towels. However, she soon realized that there was no efficient way to get funds directly to those in need. Inspired by Dolly Parton's "My People's Fund" after the Gatlinburg wildfires, the speaker decided to establish her own fund with the help of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and his team. They researched and negotiated with a firm to manage the funds on the ground, ensuring that all donations went directly to those affected. The importance of quick and direct action during a crisis cannot be overstated.

    • Overcoming Criticism and Staying True to HerselfOprah Winfrey faced backlash for a charitable donation but remained focused on self-awareness, inner strength, and helping others. She emphasized the importance of knowing oneself to avoid negativity and encouraged investing in happiness with Vuori clothing.

      Despite facing harsh criticism and vitriol, Oprah Winfrey remained true to herself and continued to spread positivity and help others. During a charitable event, she proposed starting with a large donation and inviting others to join, but was met with intense backlash. The experience reminded her of the importance of self-awareness and inner strength, especially in the face of cyberbullying. She emphasized the potential harm of the "dark triad" and encouraged people to know themselves to avoid getting lost in negativity. Despite the negativity, Oprah focused on gratitude, prayer, and helping her neighbors. She also expressed her love for Vuori clothing, which offers comfort and versatility, and encouraged listeners to invest in their happiness by trying it out with a discount at viore.com/hardthings. Overall, Oprah's resilience and commitment to helping others serve as an inspiring reminder to stay true to oneself and spread positivity.

    • Lesson from Oprah's trial: Gratitude and trusting the processOprah learned to develop a thicker skin and become more confident in her identity during a trial by focusing on gratitude and trusting the process, now she helps people directly by transferring funds into their accounts.

      Oprah Winfrey's resilience and ability to overcome negative criticism and adversity stem from her faith and the lessons she learned during a pivotal moment in her life. Prior to this, Oprah was deeply affected by every negative comment and would try to confront those who criticized her. However, during a trial in 1998, she was forced to endure six weeks of having her truth tested and learned the importance of gratitude and trusting the process. Maya Angelou advised her to say "thank you" during difficult times, as the rainbow would only be visible on the other side. This experience helped Oprah develop a thicker skin and become more confident in her identity. In her current work, she applies this mindset to help people directly by bypassing traditional methods of distributing aid and instead transferring funds directly into their accounts. Despite still reflecting on the experience, she remains committed to moving forward and making a positive impact.

    • Trials lead to self-discovery and growthTrials can help us understand ourselves better and lead to personal growth and liberation through self-awareness and love

      Life's trials and challenges serve as opportunities for self-discovery and growth. As the speaker shared, everyone encounters trials, whether personal or external. These trials force us to question our identity and help us separate ourselves from the circumstances. The speaker's experience during her trial led her to a newfound understanding of herself, and she emerged with a deeper sense of self-awareness. It's essential to remember that everyone has their unique journey, and it's okay to feel hurt and disappointed when faced with adversity. However, it's also crucial to recognize that these experiences can lead to personal growth and liberation, especially when we learn to offer and receive love freely. The speaker's experiences with her parents' passing further emphasized the importance of love and freedom in coping with loss and navigating life's challenges.

    • Finding Meaning in Grief and Loss or Transformative Power in ChallengesThrough personal connections or collective action, find meaning and growth in life's challenges. Some find comfort in grief, while others find new purpose. Passionate goals and actions can lead to transformative change.

      The way we experience grief and loss can vary greatly from person to person. While some may feel unmoored and lost, others may find newfound freedom and a deeper connection to their loved ones. In Oprah's case, receiving an email from Glennon helped her receive her mother's spirit in a way she hadn't thought possible. Meanwhile, the work of grassroots environmental activists, like the Goldman Environmental Prize winners, demonstrates the transformative power of setting passionate goals and making a difference in the world. And even in the midst of difficult times, there's always room for laughter and joy. So, whether it's through personal connections or collective action, remember that there's always a way to find meaning and growth in life's challenges.

    • Focus on progress and gratitude, not envy or comparisonReflect on personal growth and express gratitude to live a fulfilling life, trusting in one's abilities and authenticity.

      Oprah Winfrey, in her conversation with Glennon Doyle, emphasized the importance of focusing on progress and gratitude rather than envy or comparison. She shared her practice of reflecting on how far she's come instead of fixating on the destination. Oprah also highlighted the power of being authentic and trusting oneself, as she believes that preparation and planning are important for some situations but intuition and being present can guide us through others. She encouraged everyone, including Glennon, to trust in their abilities and embrace their uniqueness. Overall, the conversation underscored the importance of self-reflection, gratitude, and authenticity in living a fulfilling life.

    • Friends may deny your humanityThose experiencing denial of their humanity should assert their worth and value, not show humility.

      The concept of denying one's humanity should not be taken lightly or trivialized, especially for those who have experienced it. Oprah Winfrey shared her feelings of being fully herself and accepted by her audience, but acknowledged that not everyone has that experience. In a discussion about a book excerpt, the idea that friends might be "denying your humanity" was brought up. However, Oprah felt that the suggestion of humility for the person experiencing this was misplaced. She believed that those whose humanity has been questioned should not be the ones to show humility, but rather, they should assert their worth and value in relationships. Ultimately, the decision to sacrifice one's self-respect or end a relationship depends on what one is willing to accept.

    • Managing Family Expectations as a Successful Family MemberSetting clear boundaries and managing expectations is crucial for successful family members to maintain their personal growth and well-being, while still honoring family ties.

      Becoming the first successful family member can bring immense pressure and expectations, making it essential to manage relationships carefully. Oprah Winfrey shared her experience of feeling like a "national bank" for her family, with everyone asking for financial help. She recalled how the requests escalated from $500 to $5,000 as she grew more successful. This experience left her feeling unseen and denied her humanity. To address this, she organized a dinner where she set up trust funds and contracts for her family members, clearly defining what they would receive. By taking this action, she was able to humbly remove herself from their financial expectations and focus on her own well-being. This experience underscores the importance of setting boundaries and managing expectations when becoming the first successful family member. It's crucial to remember that while family ties are strong, one's personal growth and well-being should not be compromised.

    • Finding joy in trials and broadening the scope of mothering loveMothering love is an energy to offer, not a fixed identity. Finding joy in trials and broadening the scope of love can lead to mental and spiritual evolution.

      Happiness is not solely dependent on the absence of unhappiness, but rather a balance of both. The speaker shares her experience of feeling contentment and even finding joy in the midst of trials, and how the idea of mothering love being an energy to offer rather than a fixed identity has resonated with her. Despite the challenges she faced in her past, she has reached a point of mental and spiritual evolution where she knows she will be okay, even during difficult times. The speaker also emphasizes the importance of broadening the scope of mothering love and using it as a floodlight for all, rather than a laser beam for a select few.

    • Finding positivity in difficult relationshipsDespite challenges, it's possible to transform negative experiences into something positive and give back to the world.

      Despite the challenges and complexities of relationships, particularly the one between a mother and daughter, it's possible to find ways to turn difficult experiences into something positive and give back to the world. Glennon Doyle's letter to her daughter Oprah is a powerful reminder of the resilience and grace that can come from overcoming adversity. Even when one doesn't receive the mothering love they deserve, they can still become a beacon of light and transform their experiences into something valuable for themselves and others. It's a testament to the human spirit's ability to heal and grow, and a reminder that every experience, no matter how difficult, can hold the potential for transformation and legacy.
