The media mogul talks about OWN challenges and living her best life.
In the November issue of Harper's Bazaar, Oprah Winfrey strikes a few poses for the magazine's fashion spread. Photographer Terry Richardson captured the media mogul in business-sharp outfits while her interview speaks on Winfrey's challenges with the Oprah Winfrey Network.
"When you have reached the peak of a mountaintop, which is where I was with the Oprah show, you have absolutely no worries," she says about taking on the project. "I'd been in the right space at the right time, and I'd done that in the best way possible for 25 years. But you have two choices: You can come down from the mountain and spend the rest of your days thinking it was so beautiful there, or you can create a vision, look upward, see the next mountain and start the climb all over again."
She could have easily quit as the networks' ratings were faltering and after ending The Oprah Winfrey Show in 2011, but instead she sought bigger dreams. So when it comes to her mantra, "live your best life," Winfrey admits she's still working on herself.
"Ah, yes," she says. "I'm a work in progress when it comes to practicing my most famous motto. Like this morning, I had the intention to meditate for 20 minutes, but I really only made it about 12. And then I said, 'OK, don't beat yourself up; you did the 12.'"
