Oprah Defines What It Means to Be a Master

Season 6

Oprah's intention for Oprah's Master Class has always hinged on one understanding: "All stories are connected," she says. "There is nothing that anyone who's living on earth has ever felt or known or experienced on a soul level that hasn't been felt or known or experienced by someone else."

The guests who share their stories on the series may be notable figures, but, to Oprah, what makes someone a master has less to do with success and more to do with progress.

"I define a master as someone who has fully stepped in and owned the full progress and trajectory of their life," she says. "Anyone who can do that is a master, and their ability to share their stories only helps the trajectory of others who listen."

Oprah's Master Class returns in August.
