“I’ve found that nothing in life is worthwhile unless you take risks. . . Fall forward. Every failed experiment is one step closer to success. You’ve got to take risks. You will fail at some point in your life. Accept it. You will lose. You will embarrass yourself. You will suck at something. There is no doubt about it. . . Never be discouraged. Give everything you’ve got. And when you fall throughout life . . . fall forward.”
~~ Denzel Washington
Denzel Washington is one of my favorite actors. He plays some of the best characters. I have watched “Man on Fire” over and over again. It’s a great story, but Denzel’s acting is exceptional.
Today’s quote from Denzel Washington expresses an important thought about life. We may have bad times, failures, times when things don’t go our way. The key, Denzel expresses is that when these things happen, we have to Fall Forward! What does he mean by falling forward?
If you think about football for example, when the players have the ball and are running with the ball toward the goal line, they will often get tackled. Even though they try their hardest, give it all they’ve got, they will sometimes fall. But if you notice them, when they are falling, they do everything they can to FALL FORWARD. They fight to move the ball forward toward the goal line to get even the smallest inch closer to the goal.
When we have our goals defined, when we know what we want, we sometimes have to take risks. When we fall, and we often fall. The key to our success is to fall forward. Move a little closer to our goal.
Go Out Today, Take Risks, Take Big Steps. If you Fall, Fall Forward!
