Denzel Washington: aspire to make a difference
Key points from Denzel Washington’s speech
Boy, you are going to travel the world and speak to millions of people.
Fail Big. Take chances, professionally.
Don’t be afraid to go outside the box, don’t be afraid to think outside the box.
Don’t be afraid to fail big, to dream big.
But remember, dreams without goals are just dreams and they ultimately fuel disappointment.
So have dreams, but have goals, life goals, yearly goals, monthly goals, daily goals.
And understand that to achieve these goals, you must apply discipline and consistency.
We don’t plan to fail, we fail to plan.
Remember that just because you’re doing a lot more, it doesn’t mean you’re getting a lot more done.
Don’t confuse movement with progress.
Anything you want good, you can have. So claim it, work hard to get it.
When you get it, reach back, pull someone else up.
Don’t just aspire to make a living. Aspire to make a difference.
