*Denzel Washington provided a vital ingredient to his success while speaking to a group of young actors.
In a short video uploaded to YouTube on May 26, the two-time Oscar winner took time out to emphasize how the importance of spirituality, a trait that has served him well in his own career.
“True desire in the heart for anything good is God’s proof to you sent beforehand to indicate that it’s yours already,” Washington stated in the clip, which was posted on Tyrese Gibson’s Facebook page by the actor/singer himself on Sunday. As of Friday morning, the video had been shared more than 100,000 times, according to thegrio.com.
Washington, who currently stars in the Broadway revival of “A Raisin in the Sun,” through June 15, goes on to express his hope that the young actors find time each morning to get on their knees and pray. As for what it takes for them to make their dreams a reality, the 59-year-old entertainer said, “Dreams without goals remain dreams. Just dreams. And ultimately — fuel disappointment […] Goals on the road to achievement cannot be achieved without discipline and consistency.”
Washington’s spiritual foundation can be traced to his father, who was a Pentecostal minister. In an December 2007 with Readers Digest, the actor confessed that he “definitely” considers himself a spiritual person and reads the Bible “every day.”
