ENGLISH SPEECH DENZEL WASHINGTON - Put God first (English Subtitles) with Английский subtitles   Complain, DMCA

Thank you so much for all the love, for all\nthe warm.

Thank you all for accepting me.

Well, I always start my talk with some disclaimer­.

And that disclaimer is that I never claimed\n

Because where ever I go I share a story with\never­yone.

I believe in the power of words.

Many people speak before they think.

Words can make you, break you, they can heal\n

So, I always try to use the positive words\nin my life.

Wherever I go, they call it adversity, I call\nit opportunit­y.

They call it weakness, I call it strength.

They call me disable, I call myself differentl­y\nable.

There are some incidents that happened in\nyour life.

And those incidents are so strong that they\nchan­ge your DNA.

Those incidents and accidents are so strong\n

They deform your body but they transform your\nsoul­.

Those incidents break you, deform you but\n

And the same thing happened to me.

And I am going to share what exactly happened\n­to me.

I was 18 years old when I got married.

I belong to a very conservati­ve family, a\nBaloch family.

My father wanted me to get married and all\n

say ‘YES’. and of course, it was never\na happy marriage.

Just about after 2 years of getting married,\n

Somehow my husband fell asleep and the car\nfell into the ditch.

He managed to jump out, saved himself.

But I stayed inside the car and I sustain\na lot of injuries.

My right arm was fractured, whist was fractured,­\n

And because of the rib cage injury, lungs\n

That’s why I have to wear the bag where\neve­r I go.

But that injuries changed me and my life completely­.

As a person, my perception towards living\n

My backbone was completely crushed.

And I got paralyzed for rest of my life.

So this accident took place in a far-flung\­n

aid, no hospital, no ambulance.

I was in the middle of nowhere.

While they were dragging me out I got the\n

And now there was this debate going on, should\n

The was one four wheeler jeep standing in\n

They said, put her in the back of the jeep\n

And I still remember that bumpy ride.

They threw me in the back of the jeep and\n

That is where I realized that my half body\n

I finally ended up in a hospital where I stayed\n

Doctors have put a lot of titanium in my arms\n

That’s why, In Pakistan, people called me\n

Sometimes I wonder how easy it is for me to\n

And somebody has rightly said that when you\n

cry, that means you are healing.

Those two and a half months, in the hospital,\­nwere droughtful­.

I will not make a story just to inspire you.

I was on the verge of dis-pare.

One day the doctor came to me, and he said,\n

but you ended up being a housewife.

You won’t be able to paint again because\n

You won’t be able to hold the pen again.

Next day, the doctor came to me and said,\n

Again, Next day the doctor came and said,\n

that you have in your back, you won’t be\n

I still remember, I ask my mother, why me,\n

I couldn’t walk, I couldn’t paint, fine.

I cannot be a mother and we have this thing\n

Having children, I am going to be an incomplete­\n

People are scared that they think I will get\ndivor­ced.

We all try to chase this tunnel.

Because we see lights at the end of the tunnel\n

My dear friends, in my situation, there was\n

And that is where I realized the words have\n

My mother said to me that this two sell-pass.

God has a greater plan for you.

And all in that distress and grief, mom’s\n

I was trying to put my smile on my face all\n

It was so hard to hide the pain which was\nthere­.

But all I knew was that I will give up, my\n

I cannot see them crying with me.

So what kept me going was one day I asked\n

but I am tired of looking at these white walls\n

I want to add more colors to my life.

Bring me some colors, I want to paint.

so the very first painting I made was on my\ndeathb­ed.

It was not just an art piece or not just my\npassio­n.

What an amazing therapy it was.

without saying a single word, I could paint\nmy heart out.

People used to come and say, ‘wow, what\na lovely painting’.

so much color, nobody sees the grief in it.

So that’s how I spend my two and a half\nmont­hs in the hospital.

Lying, never complainin­g or whining but painting.

and I realized that I have developed a lot\n

There were a lot of infections all over my\n

So Doctor wanted me to lie down on the bed\nstrai­ght.

For not six months, for not 1 year, but for\n

one room looking outside the window listening\­n

be a time when we will be going out with the\n

That was the time, where I realized how lucky\n

That is the time where I realized, the day\n

to make them realize how blessed they are\n

There are always turning points in your life.

There was a rebirthday that I celebrated­.

After two years and two and a half months\n

That was the day where I had the rebirth.

I was a completely different person.

I still remember the day I sat on the wheelchair­\n

live this, knowing that I am never going to\n

I saw myself in the mirror. and I talked to\nmy self.

And I still remember what I said.

I cannot wait for a miracle to come and make\nme walk.

I cannot sit in the corner of the room crying,\n

So, I have to accept my self, the way I am,\n

So, I applied the lip color for the first\ntim­e.

And I erased it. and I cried and I said what\nam I doing.

A person on a wheelchair should not do this.

This time I put it to myself.

Because I want to feel perfect from within.

And that day I decided I am going to a life\nof myself.

I am not going to be that perfect person for\nsomeo­ne.

I am just going to take this moment and I\n

And do you know, how we all begin?

That day I decided, I am going to fight my\nfears.

Fear of the unknown, fear of known.

so I wrote down one by one, all those fears.

And I decided I am going to overcome those\nfea­rs one at a time.

You know what was my biggest fear.

I was trying to cling on this person who didn’t\nwa­nt me anymore.

But I said no, I have to make it work.

But the day I decided that this is nothing\nb­ut my fear.

I liberated myself by setting him free.

And I made myself emotionall­y so strong that\n

I sent him a text and said, ‘I am so happy\n

And he knows that I pray for him today.

My biggest fear number two was I won’t be\n

But then I realize, there are so many children\n

So there is no point of crying, just go and\nadopt one.

I gave my name to different organizati­ons,\ndiff­erent orphanages­.

I didn’t mention, I am on the wheelchair­,\ndying to have a child.

so I told then this is Muniba Mazari and she\n

But I want to adopt and I waited patiently.

Two years later, I got this call from a very\n

They said, ‘Are you Muniba Mazari’.

And When I said ‘Yes’, I could literally\­nfeel the labor pain.

Yes Yes, I am going to adopt him.

And when I reached there, the man was sitting\n

Don’t judge me, I am in the wheelchair­.

You know what he said, ‘I know you will\n

You both will be lucky to have each other’.

And that day, he was two days old and today\nhe is six.

You will be surprised to know the bigger fear\nthat I had in me.

I used to hide myself from people.

When I was in bed for two years and I used\n

I used to pretend that I am not going to meet\nanyo­ne.

Because I couldn’t stand that sympathy that\nthey had for me.

They used to treat me like a patient.

When I used to smile, look at me and said,\n

I was tired of this question being asked.

Well, a lady at the airport asked me, ‘Are\nyou sick’.

And I said, well, besides this spinal cord\ninju­ry, I am fine.

Those were really cute questions.

They never used to feel cute when I was on\nthe bed.

so I used to hide myself from people knowing\n

Today, I am here speaking to all these amazing\np­eople.

Because I have overcome the fear.

You know when you ended up being in the wheelchair­,\n

People on the wheelchair­, who are differentl­y\n

People think that they will not be accepted\n

So, I decided instead of starting an INGO,\n

will not help anyone, I started to appear\nmo­re in public.

I have a lot of exhibition­s for Pakistan,\­n

campaign for brands like tony and guy.

I have done some really funny breaking the\n

There was this one by the name clown town\n

So, when you accept yourself, the way you\n

I became the national goodwill ambassador­\nof UN women, Pakistan.

And now I speak for the rights of women and\nchild­ren.

We talk about inclusion, diversity, gender\n

I was featured in BBC 100 women for 2015.

One of the Forbes 30 under 30 for 2016.

And it all didn’t happen alone.

You all are thriving in your careers.

You have bigger dreams and aspiration­s in\nlife.

Always remember one thing, on the road to\n

Do not think that you alone can achieve things.

No, there is always another person, who is\n

forefront, behind you, supporting you.

No matter how much I say that I couldn’t\n­find a hero.

I still want to recognize those three people\n

and I get inspiratio­n from them every single\nda­y.

The women who believe in me even when I was\n

And every time, I looked at her saying.

She used to look at me and said, it’s too\nsell pass.

One day you will say that Oh my God, that\n

She never cried in front of me.

She always said that there will be haters,\n

and there will be you to proving them wrong.

Whatever I am today, I am nothing without\nh­er.

Thank you, mama, I wish you were here.

Thank you for making me, who I am today.

You know, what we human being have a problem.

We always expect each from lives.

We have this amazing fantasy about life.

This is how things should work.

If that doesn’t happen, we give up.

So my dear friends, let me tell you one thing.

I never wanted to be in a wheelchair­.

Never thought of being in a wheelchair­.

I was always aspiring to do bigger things.

and I had no idea, for that, I have to pay\n

This life is a test and a trial.

I never supposed to be easy and why you are\n

And life gives you the lemon. and you made\n

Because you were expecting each from a trial.

Trial make you a stronger better person.

Everything is OK. but giving up is not be\n

They always say that failure is not an option.

When you fail, you get up and then you fail,\n

We want our self to be perfect.

Perfect life, Perfect relationsh­ips, Perfect\n

Nothing is perfect in this world.

We all are perfectly imperfect.

You were sent here not to become perfect people.

Those people who tell you how to look perfect\n

Trying to fight this fear of looking imperfect.

I still remember I got this complement­s, years\n

OMG, look at you, you are so fair, you are\n

Only the perfect eyes can see that.

Only the perfect eyes will see that.

Only the perfect eyes will see that.

And all those imperfecti­ons you have to listen\nto your hearts.

You don’t have to look good for people.

You don’t have to be perfect just because\n

If your soul is perfect from within.

This is all what you need to be.

Our society has made a very weird, very weird\n

We think too much about what people say.

We listen to ourselves too little.

You know what makes you perfect.

You know what makes you perfect when you try\n

You know what makes you perfect.

And how beautiful pain is that it connects\n­with people.

No other medium can connect you other but\npain.

That’s why I always say I am in pain.

Today, just because I am in pain and I am\n

Being the head of CSRF of company we conduct\n

where so many kids died because there they\n

And I personally believe that just because\n

so we give them money, we give them medical\nt­reatment.

And I also work for the beautiful people we\n

The transgende­r community of Pakistan.

You know, what connects me with them.

When I go and hug them they never judge me\n

She called herself electricit­y.

And I said are you electricit­y.

She came to me and the first time I hugged\n

Because to people, we are so imperfect.

So how beautiful these imperfecti­ons are.

Because of these imperfecti­ons, you can connect\n

And People asked me, ‘Don’t you get tired\n

I have stopped worrying about the things that\n

Things and people who were meant to be with\nme are with me.

And sometimes somebody’s absence makes you\na better person.

I always say that people are so lucky that\n

Well, the breath you just took now was a blessing.

There are so many people in the world who\n

Embraces each and every breath you are taking.

We live this one routine of the day for 75\n

If you are still thinking why you have been\nsent here.

If you are still juggling with the concept\n

You go out and seek for people who need your\nhelp­.

You add colors to their lives, you add values\nto their lives.

You become that sponge which removes all negativity­.

You can become that person who can emit beautiful\­n

And Because of you, this person didn’t give\nup.

That is the day, when you live, Always.

We were talking about gratitude.

I cry all night when nobody sees me.

Because I am a human and I have to keep the\nbalan­ce.

And I smiled all day because I know that if\n

And you will always always always ended up\nwith having more.

But if you will cry, if you will crip for\n

You will never ever have enough.

Sometimes we are too busy thinking about the\n

Cherish the blessings that we have.

I am not saying that I am not healthy that\nmake­s me unlucky.

It is hard when I say I can’t walk.

It’s hard when I say I have to wear that\nbag.

Because never giving up is the way to live.

So well, end my talk, on a very short note.

I will repeat, Be kind to yourself.

and then only we can be kind to others.

There will be turmoil, there will be trials.

But that will only make you stronger.

The real happiness does not lie in money or\nsucces­s or fame.

I have all this and I have never wanted this.

Real happiness lies in gratitude.

So be grateful and be alive and live in every\nmom­ent.

Thank you so much, everyone.
