This inspiring video from Denzel Washington was from a few years back, but I pull it out every now and then when I really need a fire lit under my butt.
Speaking to a group of young, aspiring actors, writers, and filmmakers, the legendary actor pushes them to truly treasure their gifts that they’ve been blessed with. To not misuse or depreciate that gift by not establishing actual goals, or being undisciplined or inconsistent, but to really utilize, value, and share that gift. And if there’s anyone who can speak on this, it’s definitely Denzel!
I still appreciate this clip personally, because it reminds me that to not be disciplined and consistent with my goals and dream, is misusing the gifts that God has blessed me with. It also reminds me to be grateful for those gifts, and to use those to hopefully impact other people. I hope it does the same for you all!
