On today’s episode, Denzel Washington encourages you to take risks, bring your ideas to life, and fall forward through your failures.

There’s no use playing small. Dreaming big takes no more energy than dreaming small. Yes, you will fall and you will fail. But it’s the way you look at falling and failing that makes the difference. Falling is an opportunity to get back up and keep going. Failure is not a loss, it’s a lesson. It means you’re trying. Don’t quit. Sooner or later, things will work out.
