The Moment offers some inspirational messages about following career goals despite age, previous failures, or difficult circumstances. It highlights the importance of putting aside or overcoming personal fears of failing and other mental blocks, which are often the main reason people are unable to accomplish what they want in the professional world. Also interesting are the details shared about the skills professionals need in each field, which range from mastering equipment to strong listening skills in order to perform well.

The Moment is motivating, but the show's real value comes from underscoring some of the obstacles that come with trying to return to a career later in life, including not being up-to-speed with the necessary skills, and having to compete with younger and better trained candidates. The required sacrifices people must make to be successful, like making large financial investments, working nonstop hours, and moving far away from loves ones, are also pointed out. But these messages are positive ones, because they remind us that in life there are no guarantees, and that success isn't only defined by getting a dream job.
