Media mogul, Oprah Winfrey revealed in a conversation with Hoda Kotb for the podcast Making Space, three most important people in her life.
These three good friends are Maria Shiver (Journalist and ex to Arnold Schwarzeneger),TV presenter Gayle King and personal trainer, Bob Greene.
She said; “When we met, there was an immediate spiritual connection. The first time I saw Maria was in the bathroom at the television station we both worked for at the time. I was working early shifts at the time and was up all night. Maria was washing her face and so we struck up a conversation. It was a very simple, yet groundbreaking moment for me. Because that’s where the deep and intense friendship I have with her started,”
“I meet a lot of people, but in the end there are only a few with whom you really have a deep connection. So that’s Maria, Gayle and Bob. Of course I also have other friends and acquaintances, but these three are the most important to me. Real friends are more useful than lots of ‘nice’ friends, who don’t give home when you really need them.”
Hmm,i think we can all learn a thing or two from Oprah – you don’t need too many friends to be successful in life.
