    “Success? I don’t know what that word means. I’m happy. But success, that goes back to what in somebody’s eyes success means. For me, success is inner peace. That’s a good day for me.” – Denzel Washington

    • Steven Morris says:

      I like that.

    • playboibear says:

      @James Cob, what are you talking about is something wrong with your eyes or hearing, he clear states that no matter what you do put God first, in this video he also stress the importants of reaching out to help others and not just yourself, a selfless act, so how is it that you see him as an illusionist as you call him, when in this video he doesn’t talk about his money as something that is the most important thing to him

  • Luyanda says:

    “Without commitment we will never start. Without dicipline and consistency we will never finish.” I like that.

  • Mince Hogan says:

    This guy has got to be hands down one of the most kind and likeable famous people on this planet…….a true ICON

    • Hector Velez says:


    • Big O says:

      Go to a different country not the us and you will find people that have everything it takes to be a celebrity of high class high morals and rich but in 3rd world countries opportunities are limited and almost no one gets them. There’s amazing people all over the world and it’s the ones that don’t get the opportunity to take action that are those people. I’m an American citizen too

    • Taylor True says:

      I agree completely. I also notice the dislikes. This speaks volumes about the type of world we live in, the impossibility to please everyone, and absolutely underscores the importance to not care.

    • Alison Toppin says:

      I can listen to him all day long. Amazing man.

    • Nuno Coelho says:

      Absolutely ..the message is out there is up to us to go get it

  • EastSide Eddie says:

    I absolutely love this guy. Best actor ever, and understands life and reality. Quite a role model.

  • Dave Pearen says:

    Denzel is one guy who thinks for himself. Big time respect.

    • Alejandro Galindez says:

      A tip guys! Here is something that I have to remind myself about from time to time:Self discipline;being able to keep commitments,promises and meet deadlines are ESSENTIAL to success

    • Adis Debeljak says:

      @Alejandro Galindez The harsh truth for the viewers of this video:watching motivational videos does not bring closer to success.Successful people spend their time working and/ or learning new skills instead of binge watching motivational videos everyday.Also motivation is a myth.
      You don’t need motivation you just excute the action

    • Adis Debeljak says:

      @Alejandro Galindez Watching motivation gives you the false feeling that you are already working towards your success.Stop it and do the work!

    • Barbora says:

      @Adis Debeljak I don’t like my job,I don’t like working for other people,I want to be my own boss. so I stay there and endure because it’s motivation for me to get my ish together so I never ever ever have to seek approval to take a vacation again.

    • Adis Debeljak says:

      @Barbora If you have any idea what you want to do as a side gig,you should just start as soon as possible.Start developing it after work,maybe just 1hr a day? I have a side gig and after 2-3 years it started matching my salary income.4th year now it is double my salary income but I’m still doing both.The best part?i don’t take anything attitude from my boss and I put him in his place when he needs to be checked.keep in mind,I’m also working 12-14 hrs a day 7 days a week. it isn’t easy, but it’s worth it.

  • David Leung says:

    For those of us unfamiliar with the steady voice of a father’s wisdom and strength, I heard Denzel and Will with deep hunger of spirit. It struck me that each man’s eyes were bright and alive, so I stopped, and focused, and listened to their words. Rolled them around my mind. Felt like power. Felt like being fathered. Felt strong. Feels true. Thank you.

  • Nicky Banks says:

    Not just an amazing actor,he’s a real person who has a strong desire 2 say how it is and how he feels,his heart is on his shoulders ❤ and not afraid of showing it x

  • Erik Lindhurst says:

    Denzel Washington is a class act. I admire him.

  • francis Robinson says:

    This man has to be the most inspiring of all. Not enough people have seen this video. God bless Denzel

  • Lindsay Jackson says:

    I have always loved Denzel Washington as an actor, but he is truly an inspiring man.

  • Kat says:

    I just love Denzel. Love his movies. Love to hear him speak. Always have. Always will. 🙂

    • Denzel Washington says:

      Hello Kat,
      thanks a lot for your comment, this is my private page here on YouTube that I use in comment back my fans on here, so as to appreciate them for their love and support all these years. So what’s your name and where are you currently chatting from? And for how long have you been supporting me as a fan?

  • Michael Hicks says:

    “In everything you do, put God first.” – Denzel Washington

  • Steven Rowitt says:

    Denzel is a truly inspirational man. He always acknowledges the grace of God in his life.

  • Eric Gadberry says:

    Denzel is beyond a national treasure. Humans like this are one in billion. He could do anything he wanted, he chooses to inspire.

    • RoisinT2 says:

      He truly is a treasure. Treasure for a mankind.

    • L B says:

      Yes…The Choice.

    • Haj68iou1 3&1 says:

      He telling you your just as special you can be anything he chooses to use his platform to inspire or give back . We watch what we’re not we’re not because we look at celebrity’s paths and hold them higher than are own paths everyone can be great …

    • keeping it real says:

      Do you realize he is saying there is no one in a billion, he is saying is all you have to work. I guess only the top 1% only work hard. These speeches are bullshit, it matters what opportunities you have and by most of all…..chance. There are a lot of hard workers out there but chance has let them down.

    • RoisinT2 says:

      @keeping it real There are always excuses. Expecially to them who would like/want to get all from others, not work for it them selfs.

      Of course not everyone can be President of the US or actor like Denzel etc. But still, you can make it for you, if you just sit and complain this and that you never going to get anything that is for sure.

  • Jad's YT says:

    “At the end of the day, it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished. It’s about what you’ve done with those accomplishments. It’s about who you’ve lifted up, who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve given back”._ Denzel Washington

    • Haj68iou1 3&1 says:

      I like your post but it’s not what you give back it’s what make you better I might not have anything physical to give but I can offer the best of me

    • Nicole James says:

      @Haj68iou1 3&1 and the Best of you is the most important thing to GIVE!!!

  • Rick Saunders says:

    Denzel never let success go to his head
    Plus he is not a weird Hollywood type
    Great actor, person human
    And I’ve never heard nasty things about him

  • Michael Dorner says:

    I love the positive vibes coming from successful people who came from nothing…. It’s very easy to judge those who have money but it’s harder to accept that from which is scares or absent within an obvious wisdom

  • Jay Smith says:

    If we only had more like Denzel, what a different world we would live in.

  • Rose Peters says:

    Denzel Washington’s potential is limitless. I achieved success with the easy steps below.

    • Rose Peters says:

      Many need to know this. A known podcast in the US taught me how the rich seek the ideas of FinanciaI ConsuItants to help earn success. That’s the secret the rich don’t teach you. I took this step and my finance breathes so good now 🤑

    • Rose Peters says:

      Growth in finance is assured with the help of a FinanciaI consuItant. I engage in various source of income with the ldeas of my consuItant and it yielded great returns.

    • Ryan Philips says:

      Opportunity is a scarce commodity. I will partake in this; there’s no limit to what you can achieve in life (including success) if you put your mind to it. Luckily I stumble into this.
