    I’ve been listening to a Denzel Washington speech repetitively lately and the beginning of it has really been of true value to me and a real wake up call to my life and getting me back to who I used to be. It starts off with “I found that nothing in life is worthwhile unless you take risks, nothing.” This is so true, without taking risks any particular individual will be mediocre at best!

    It is basically the same as #26. “Nothing in life is worthwhile unless you take risks. Fall forward. Every failed experiment is one step closer to success.” Denzel Washington

      July 30, 2019 at 8:50 pm

      Glad you enjoyed the article James
      Yes, sometimes we need to remember who we truly are rather than being timid and mediocre.
      I love that quote, thank you for sharing
      Let us take risks and be the best that we can possibly be
