Kerry Washington On Success And Inspiration


Scandal star Kerry Washington has really become a beaconing star in the film, theatre and now television world. The self-made woman does it all: She is a busy mother, wife, actress and is an avid fitness junkie who also attends church regularly. She is heavily motivated and like she claims in this clip, that her motivation comes from her inspiration, which is something outside of herself that comes from a place of ‘love’ that makes her feel like her best self.

This intriguing interview was done by Self Magazine and they nailed the questions perfectly for the always elegant Kerry Washington who gave some great insight on her life, her success and how ‘asking for help’ has been one of her biggest assistants to become a very successful individual. She is a very empowering woman with a lot of inner wisdom. Kerry explains that every one of us are completely unique and how we each have something or some gift that we can offer the world. And that’s also why she believes that asking for help is incredibly important, because that allows us to be our best self.


“I don’t think I’m even close to fulfilling my potential. And I think also that, unlike a pianist or a flutist, an actor has an instrument that is constantly changing.” – Kerri Washington
