5 Clips From Wes Moore’s Super Soul Sunday Conversation With Oprah That Could Change Your Life

Wes Moore’s conversation with Oprah on Super Soul Sunday is one of my favourites to date. It’s just full of such profound wisdom about life, fulfilment and purpose and I find myself going back to the episode whenever I need a dose of inspiration. I finished reading his book ‘The Work, My Search For A Life That Matters‘ last week (book review coming soon) and just wanted to share these clips with you all in the meantime.

  1. I first came across Wes Moore when I heard his clip from the show about not letting the opinions of those that don’t matter too much, matter too much. That statement has stayed with me since.

    Also, his reflections on Wall Street (though I haven’t read his book), I would say are somewhat accurate, I remember during graduate recruitment fairs whilst at uni and these employers would paint these glossy pictures of what it felt like to work in the city. Though this is a very personal opinion, it ain’t all that – which then leads to Wes’ point about your work and occupation and the difference between the two.

    Many thanks for sharing, I look forward to the book review.

    1. … was getting conscious of my comment about the city not being all at. Just to add, its all about perspectives, just like everything, there’s the good and the bad.

      1. I completely know what you mean! I think there are people whose talents is well suited to the financial industry for sure. The problem is when people force themselves to do work that doesn’t align with them. I actually found it interesting that Wes worked in an investment bank twice before he finally left and he was very honest about the financial security the job gave him and how it allowed him to take care of his family. So there’s definitely different approaches to it. xx
