I came across this commencement speech given by Denzel Washington at University of Pennsylvania back in 2011.
“Fall forward.” he says, “Every failed experiment is one step closer to success.”
Indeed, Denzel Washington’s words have a message not just for graduating students, but for all of us. His words can be applied to all walks of life. You’ve got to take risks!
Take a few minutes to listen to this edited clip of his speech. The full speech can be viewed here.
