“I would rather flirt with failure than never dance with my joy,” says author Wes Moore, who appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Network talking about his book The Work, about finding your path to purpose. In the interview, Moore says that what you would do regardless of work is what your purpose is and what should be your life’s work.
Oprah is joined by decorated veteran, entrepreneur, Rhodes scholar, and New York Times best-selling author Wes Moore for an inspirational conversation about discovering and pursuing your life’s purpose. Wes shares the lessons he learned as a combat officer in Afghanistan, a White House Fellow, and a Wall Street banker during the financial crisis. He opens up about his journey of self-discovery, service, and risk-taking that led him to walk away from financial success to create a more meaningful life for him and his family. Wes and Oprah also discuss his new book, The Work, which calls on readers to find their own paths to purpose.
