Great Leaders Are Comfortable With Failure

Early in Denzel Washington career, he auditioned for a part in a Broadway musical; a perfect role for him, he thought, except for the fact that Denzel didn’t get the job. But here’s the thing about the story. He didn’t quit; he didn’t fall back. Denzel Washington walked out of there to prepare for the next audition, and the next audition, and the next audition. He prayed and prayed, but continued to fail, and fail, and fail, but it didn’t matter because you know what? There’s an old saying according to Denzel Washington “if you hang around a barbershop long enough, sooner or later you will get a haircut. You will catch a break.”

 In 2010 Denzel Washington starred in a play called Fences on Broadway, and he won a Tony Award for his outstanding performance; but here’s the kicker, it was at that Court Theater, the same theater where Denzel Washington failed in his very first audition.  

So this begs the question

 Do you have guts to fail? Or are you living your life so cautiously that you are not even trying anything new and if that’s the case you have already failed by default according to JK Rowling. 

You Will Fail At Some Point
