Denzel Washington Speech To Actors: Dreams Without Goals Disappoint


In this motivating speech, Denzel Washington talks to an acting class about finding that “itch” within you, that burning desire that wants to be something great. He says that this itch is a calling from God, and is proof to you that it’s yours already, you already have it, claim it. Washington is also clearly a major fan of goal setting, as he states, dreams without goals remain dreams, and ultimately fuel disappoint. And therefore, dreams must have an end-goal attached to it, that fuel discipline and consistency. Last of all Denzel Washington talks about the power of gratitude, and says to get on your knees and thank God every morning.


“Understand that gift, protect that gift, appreciate that gift, utilize that gift, don’t abuse it, treasure it… It’s not how much you have, it’s what you do with what you have”  – Denzel Washington
