Denzel Washington recently received an NAACP Image Award for outstanding actor in a motion picture (Fences). I’ve pulled out the inspirational catch phrases from Denzel’s acceptance speech that emphasized the value of commitment, consistency, and hard work.
Never give up
Without commitment you’ll never start.
Without consistency you’ll never finish
It’s not easy
Keep working, keep striving, never give up
Fall down 7 times, get up 8
Ease is a greater threat to progress than hardship
Keep moving, keep growing, keep learning
See you at work
