Iyanla Vanzant's Glossary for the Soul

Aired on 08/10/1999 | CC tv-pg
In 1999, spiritual life coach Iyanla Vanzant shared a vision for a new way of speaking the truth. To Iyanla, the words we use to describe ourselves are woefully inadequate. That's why she introduced what Oprah called the "glossary for the soul."

For example, instead of the word "problem," use the phrase "divine opportunity." Instead of calling something "hard," call it "challenging." Watch as Iyanla explains how word choice shapes your world.
