How Oprah Reached The Masses – How To Reach The Masses

 

One of the biggest challenges the Big Soul of our Tribe faces is:

 

“I have so much to share– I need to reach more people”

 

That’s a challenge because of what follows directly after it:

 

“…so how do I do that?”

 

A frustrating reality for Visionaries like yourself could be that “only” 15 people show up at your workshop – when you envision 1,500, 15,000 or more…

 

So here is some wisdom that can really help you with this challenge.

 

When you understand that ONE person, ONE soul is an entire world – everything changes.

 

When you see ONE person – and you help that ONE person with your brilliant message, you changed the world.

 

Think about it:

 

Not even Oprah has the entire world in her weekly viewership! She has millions – but not hundreds of millions or Billions…

 

And she might even think: I need to reach the masses!

 

So if Oprah has this challenge – we’re in good hands 🙂

 

The point being, the “world” doesn’t exist en-masse – it exists in ONE PERSON.

 

And that ONE person who is helped will tell others about you. And if they don’t, your Karma will.

 

So remember, to reach the masses – just focus on ONE person, and you’ll be changing the world every single day.

 

Be awesome and start by sending this blog to ONE person you know would who would gain a ton from it.

 

Comment below what your big take-away was – the whole tribe would LOVE to hear from YOU.

 

In your corner and by your side,

  1. Mark and Shannon,
    I don’t disagree with you, that the whole world is one person and one person is the whole world. I’d like to share with you one of my favorite examples of how quickly (and easily[??]) a person or an idea can grow. In my imaginary world, people don’t stay home because of a little rain, or because grandma has the flu, because the message you are delivering has come to them with such high praise that they are reluctant to miss your next presentation while you are in town. You travel around telling people your idea and they keep coming out to see and hear you.
    How did it all start? You decided to go down to the coffee shop and tell someone who looked like they needed a little cheering up on a cold Sunday night. That person not only heard and received your message they told two friends about it, who showed up the next Sunday night to hear you, and there the story begins. Easy enough to imagine that happening, isn’t it?
    So those folks each tell two more friends and the next Sunday night you have not only the two friends from the previous week but you have 4 more who heard about you and your message from the two who showed up on the second Sunday. Pretty soon the coffee shop manager loans you their meeting room so your “fans” don’t clog up his whole restaurant because the crowd keeps telling just one more couple of friends each week. They all keep showing up because your message is broad enough and compelling enough that you can spend hours explaining the details without boring the audience.
    By the end of the second month, as the crowds grow, you have 128 people listening to you, more than the coffee shops’ little meeting room can hold, so a lot of them are in the parking lot straining to hear through the open fire exit door. At this rate, your weekly crowd grows to nearly 10,000 by the end of two and a half months, and in 6 months your “fan club” would be somewhere in the territory of 30 million people. At just one “meeting” per week, assuming you started in the first week of January of the year, your audience has literally grown to everyone on earth by the middle of September.
    Is it reasonable to expect your reach to double every week? Probably not if that means people arriving live, in person, at one particular location, but even so, if it took you all year to rise to about 32 people (that’s about one eighth the growth rate of the prior example), and keep growing at that rate, the second year would end with over 2000 people and the rise from there is very rapidly reaching into the 130,000 by the end of the third year. Is that worth 3 years of your life? Well, let’s put it this way: You would need to rent the largest football stadium in town every week to accommodate your growing following, and for one meeting a week it still isn’t a “full-time job”, is it?
    Now, make one small adjustment. Put all of this into an email campaign. Virtually none of the expense, admittedly a much higher drop-out rate, but you can touch a very large portion of the planet in the same time frame. Is that worth a one-day-a-week effort? In other words, don’t be too quick to abandon those small numbers in the first few months. Maintain your enthusiasm worthy of the value of your message, and be responsive to your fans.
    Seems like a plan to me. How about to you? Worth a try, don’t you think?
    Sincerely,
    Stafford “Doc” Williamson

    1. Thanks for the thoughtful response Stafford! Love your thinking.
      Would love to connect more with you. Great minds!

  2. Great timing. My take away from this is that everyone is a divine being, and deserves undivided attention. When I am fully present and focused on the person that I am with, energies soar, words flow, and miracles happen! To be reminded of that ripple effect really ignites joy in my heart.
