Oprah Winfrey delivered this inspiring commencement speech at Harvard University this summer.  She shares her truths and emotions when her network was experiencing failure ("I felt I was stuck in a hole.").

She explains what it is like to rebound after a very public failure.  "If you are constantly pushing yourself higher and higher, you will at some point fail." She goes on to explain that "failure is just life trying to move us in another direction."

Watch her speech (the story begins at minute 5:05) and hear this accomplished woman speak to us about writing the story of "who you want to be."
