Denzel Washington: Commit To Your Dreams, and Never Give Up

Denzel Washington - Keep Working

Denzel Washington gives a passionate speech about the importance of committing to your dreams, and of never letting hardships stop you from pursuing your goals.

Transcript:


"It's not easy. If it was easy, there'd be no Kerry Washington. If it was easy, there'd be no Taraji Henson. If it were easy, there'd be no Octavia Spencer. But not only that, it if were easy, there'd be no Viola Davis. If it were easy, there'd be no Mykelti Williamson, no Stephen McKinley Henderson, no Russell Hornsby. If it were easy, there'd be no Denzel Washington.

"Keep working. Keep striving. Never give up. Fall down seven times, get up eight. Without commitment, you'll never start. But more importantly, without consistency, you'll never finish. Ease is a greater threat to progress than hardship. Ease is a greater threat to progress than hardship, so keep moving, keep growing, keep learning. See you at work."
