Just pulled myself away from a pile of clean laundry and Oprah long enough to get this super-duper new idea out to you that came from Oprah and her guest, Russell Simmons. Hold onto your hats, people; this could rock your world.
Simmons, a great American entrepreneur who began Def Jam records and has his lucrative hands on many ventures has just announced: "To be a leader, you've got to be a servant."
Wow. Wonder where he got that novel idea?
To this, Oprah says to the audience: "Did you hear that? I know; it's an 'AH-HA' moment! 'To be a great leader, you've got to be a servant!'"
Yeah, well, a while back, Someone once said, "If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of all." (Mark 9:35, but also Mark 10:44, John 13:15, 1 Corinthians 9:19 ... you get the idea.)
These two are just having an ecstatic spirit-fest on that stage like they have excavated universal truths.
Oprah clarified, though, that you've got to be attached to The Source before the law of attraction can work for you, as in The Secret. Mr. Simmons agreed and says that there are as many ways to God as there are people.
This reminds me of my pastor who says, "I'm just glad he made A Way, let alone demanding a thousand ways. Why is it so hard to accept the way?"
