Denzel Washington is 1 of my very favorite actors.
Winner of 2 Academy Awards, he has been described as a passionate artist who reconfigured "the concept of classic movie stardom", associating with characters defined by their grace, dignity, humanity, and inner strength.
The most inspiring and sought after university commencement speaker, forthcoming is the link to 1 of Denzel's most heartfelt motivational dissertations:
A few key excerpts:
° "Put your slippers wayyyyyyyy under the bed at night, so in the morning you start your day by kneeling and praying ~ thank you for grace, mercy, understanding, wisdom, love, kindness, humility, peace, and for prosperity."
° Echoing Christ Yeshua's "pray as you have already received it", Denzel teaches "say thank you in advance for what’s already yours."
° "True desire in the heart for anything good is God’s proof to you, sent beforehand ~ to indicate that it’s already yours."
° "That itch that you have, whatever it is that you want to do, whatever it is you want to do to help others to grow and to make money ~ anything you want, you can have."
° "So declare it. Claim it. Work hard to get it. And when you get it, reach back and pull someone else up."
° "Each one ~ teach one."
° "Put God 1st" ~ The Way Maker, The Miracle Worker, The Promise Keeper, The Light in the Darkness!
