Morgan Freeman

Morgan Freeman, one of America's most beloved actors, reveals the lessons he learned throughout his prolonged rise to success and discusses the hand of providence that brought him there.

Morgan's early enthusiasm for performance helped him nurture his natural gifts, but a career in movies was sidetracked by his time spent in the United States Air Force. Realizing that the heightened reality of the movies from his childhood did not translate to the real world, he left the military to become an actor.

Despite his struggles with poverty, hunger and a lack of any perceived progress, Morgan declared who he was: an actor. Looking back on these challenges, Morgan shares his revelation that—with providence as your guide and with a determination to just keep moving—your life will unfold as it should.
