Happy Thursday Do Gooders! Today we are taking some pointers straight from Denzel Washington’s commencement speech for UPenn. These quotes are directed at those yearning to reach for something greater than themselves but are either stuck in fear or uncertainty. We hope you find a sense of encouragement in these words and feel the urge to start the “Do Good Project” you’ve been dreaming of!
TOOLS, TACTICS, & TIPS 1.“There is no passion to be found playing small and settling for a life that’s less than the one you’re capable of living.” 2. “To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.” 3.“Imagine you’re on your deathbed and standing around your deathbed, are the ghosts representing your unfulfilled potential. The ghost of the ideas you never acted on. The ghost of the talents you didn’t use.” .
