WATCH THIS EVERY DAY – Motivational Speech By Denzel Washington [YOU NEED TO WATCH THIS]

[Music] to get something you never had you have to do something you never did les brown's a motivational speaker he made an analogy about this he says 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 and they're standing around your bed angry disappointed and upset they say we we came to you because you could have brought us to life they say and now we have to go to the grave together so i ask you today how many ghosts are going to be around your bed when your time comes put god first put god first in everything you do everything that you think you see in me everything that i've accomplished everything that you think i have and i have a few things everything that i have is by the grace of god 40 years ago march 27 1975 it was 40 years ago uh just this past march i was flunking out of college i had a 1.7 grade point average i was sitting in my mother's beauty pilot and i'm looking in the mirror and i see behind me this woman under the dryer every time i looked up she was looking at me just look at me in the eye i didn't know who she was and i said you know she said somebody give me a pen give me a pencil i have a prophecy march 27 1975 she said boy you are going to travel the world and speak to millions of people now mind you all flunk out of college i'm thinking about joining the army i didn't know what i was going to do and she's telling me i'm going to travel the world and speak to millions of people well i have traveled the world and i have spoke to millions of people but that's not the most important thing the success that i had the most important thing is that what she taught me and what she told me that day has stayed with me since [Music] i've been protected i've been directed i've been corrected i've kept god in my life and has kept me humble i didn't always stick with him but he always stuck with me so stick with him in everything you do if you think you want to do what you think i've done then do what i've done and stick with god fail big that's right fail big today's the beginning of the rest of your life and it can be it's going to be very frightening it's a new world out there it's a mean world out there and you only live once so do what you feel passionate about passionate about take chances professionally don't be afraid to fail there's an old iq test was nine dots and you had to draw five lines with a pencil within these nine dots without lifting the pencil the only way to do it was to go outside the box so don't be afraid to go outside the box don't be afraid to think outside the box don't be afraid to fail big to dream big but remember dreams without goals are just dreams and they ultimately fuel disappointment so have dreams but have goals life goals yearly goals monthly goals daily goals i try to give myself a goal every day sometimes just to not curse somebody out simple goals but have goals and understand that to achieve these goals you must apply discipline and consistency in order to achieve your goals you must apply discipline which you've already done and consistency every day not just on tuesday and miss a few days you have to work at it every day you have to plan every day you've heard the saying we don't plan to fail we fail to plan hard work works working really hard is what successful people do and in this text tweet twerk world that you've grown up in remember just because you're doing a lot more doesn't mean you're getting a lot more done remember that just because you're doing a lot more doesn't mean you're getting a lot more done don't confuse movement with progress my mother told me yeah because you can run in place all the time and never get anywhere so continue to strive continue to have goals continue to progress you'll never see a u-haul behind a hearse i'll say it again you'll never see a u-haul behind a hearse i don't care how much money you make you can't take it with you the egyptians tried it they got robbed that's all they got you can't take it with you with you and it's not how much you have is what you do with what you have we all have different talents some of you will be doctors some lawyers some scientists some educators some nurses the most selfish thing you can do in this world is help someone else why is it selfish because the gratification the goodness that comes to you the good feeling the good feeling that i get from helping others nothing's better than that well one of two things but nothing's better than that not not jewelry not big house i have not the cars but the it's the joy that's where the joy is in helping others that's where the success is in helping others finally i pray that you put your slippers way under the bed tonight so that when you wake up in the morning you have to get on your knees to reach them and why when while you're down there say thank you for grace thank you for mercy thank you for understanding thank you for wisdom thank you for parents thank you for love thank you for kindness thank you for humility thank you for peace thank you for prosperity say thank you in advance for what's already yours it's how i live my life that's why i why i am one of the reasons why i am today say thank you in advance for what is already yours true desire in the heart for anything good is god's proof to you sent beforehand to indicate that it's yours already i'll say it again true desire in the heart that itch that you have whatever it is you want to do that thing that you want to do to help others and to to grow and to make money that desire that it's that's god's proof to you sent beforehand already to indicate that it's yours and anything you want good you can have so claim it work hard to get it when you get it reach back pull someone else up each one teach one [Applause] don't just aspire to make a living aspire to make a
