Motivational speech by Shahrukh Khan

Success is a wonderful thing but it tend not to be sort of experience that we learn from.

We enjoy it perhaps even we deserve it, But we don’t acquire wisdom from it and may be that’s why It cannot be passed on either

Me being successful does not mean my kids are going to be successful 

Even if I teach them everything that I know and How to do it I feel talking about success is completely a big waste of time.

Me being successful does not mean my kids are going to be successful 

Even if I teach them everything that I know and How to do it I feel talking about success is completely a big waste of time.

Instead let me tell you a very honestly

Whatever happened to me happened because I have been always been terrified of failure.

I don’t want as much to succeed as much I don’t want to fail

I come from  a very normal lower middle class family

I saw lot of failure

My father was a beautiful man and most successful failure in the world.

My mother also failed to stay long enough with me to see me become a big movie star

We were quiet poor actually and let me tell you poverty is not an ennobling experience at all.

Poverty entails fear and stress and sometimes depression I watched my parents go through this several times.

At an early age when my parents died I equated poverty with failure I just didn’t want to be poor.

So when I got chance to act in flims It wasn’t out of any creative desire.

I say this honestly It was purely out of the fear of failure and poverty Most of the flims got were discard of better known actor and the producers could not find anyone else to do them.

I did them all to make sure that I was working to avoid unemployment the timing or something was right.

I worked very hard there were people around it and I became a big star.

The flims became the hits

Which means ?

Sometimes our success is not the direct result of actions and let nobody tell you that,

Success sometimes just happens

Really……   it is accidental and we have to take credit for it

I do it sometimes cheerily out of embarrassment

So I believe the true path of success is through the fear of failure

If you aren’t scared enough of failing

You are unlikely to succeed

It’s not pleasant to fail it’s though All of us experience it.

You will to, if you haven’t already. So use it to succeed

How I have done is a few points I like to say and then I’ll end this monologue

Firstly it’s not the absence of failure that makes you a success

It is your response to failure

That actually helps to buffer

The reverses that you experience

I personally have one response to failure- Pragmatism

A recognition and belief that if one approach does not work, then the other will or might

A recognition and belief that if one approach does not work, then the other will or might

Here’ I have done so

Failure also gives me an incentive to greater exertion

Harder work

Which invariable leads to later success in most cases

Repeated failure has taught me

To stop pretending I am someone else

It’s given me the clarity to stick to the things that’s really matters for me instead of distracting me from my core.

Failure’s also gets you to find who are your real friends are the true strength of your relationship only gets tested in the face of strong adversity.

Overcoming some of my failures Has made me discover

That I have a strong will

And more discipline then I suspected it has helped me to have confidence in my ability to survive,

Failure is an amazing teacher.

There is a very well-known story of very successful man, and the reporter asked him

 

How it is that you always succeed ?

He said: Right decisions

Then reporter said how do you make a right decisions

He says: With experience

Then reporter says how do you get so experience

He says: Wrong decisions and failure

So do fail and it’s alright to fail

You have to know and learn that

Life is not just the checklist of acquisitions, Attainments and Fulfillment

Your qualifications and CVS don’t really matter
Instead life is difficult and complicated and beyond anyone’s control.

The humility to know this will help you survive in vicissitudes.

But I don’t want to sound dark,

My hope for all of you is that you retain a lifelong love of learning that you never cease to dream exciting and inspiring dreams and when you fail

You fail enough to succeed the next time

Don’t be afraid of being afraid

Be afraid of not facing your fears and failures
