Put God First – Denzel Washington Motivational & Inspiring Commencement Speech

 

In delivering the commencement speech at Dillard University, Academy Award-winning actor Denzel Washington told the college graduates to put God first in everything they do, adding that everything he has accomplished in this life was due to the grace of God.

During his speech he shared with the 218 graduates four key points of advice: ‘Put God first in everything’, ‘fail big’, ‘you’ll never see a U-Haul behind a hearse’ and ‘saying thank you in advance of what is already yours’

‘Today is the beginning of the rest of your life and you only live once, so do what you feel passionate about,’ Washington told the graduates.

‘Take chances, professionally. Don’t be afraid to fail.’

He continued: ‘Don’t be afraid to dream big, but remember dreams without goals are just dreams and they ultimately fuel disappointment. So have dreams but have goals.

‘To achieve these goals, you must apply discipline and consistency everyday. You have to work at it.’
