Perfecting your craft is one of the main keys in being successful.
Nearly all monster stories depend for their success on Jack killing the Giant, Beowulf or St. George slaying the Dragon, Harry Potter triumphing over the basilisk. That is their inner grammar, and the whole shape of the story leads towards it.
I firmly believe that unless one has tasted the bitter pill of failure, one cannot aspire enough for success.
Those who cannot work with their hearts achieve but a hollow, half-hearted success that breeds bitterness all around.
Creativity is the key to success in the future, and primary education is where teachers can bring creativity in children at that level.
For success of any mission, it is necessary to have creative leadership. Creative leadership is vital for government, non-governmental organisations as well as for industries.
Tell me, why is the media here so negative? Why are we in India so embarrassed to recognise our own strengths, our achievements? We are such a great nation. We have so many amazing success stories but we refuse to acknowledge them. Why?
Success comes to those who dedicate everything to their passion in life. To be successful, it is also very important to be humble and never let fame or money travel to your head.
After a point of time, when you get success and fame, money and everything, the purpose of life has to be redefined. For me, I think that purpose is to build bridges. Artists can do that very easily, more than politicians.
I don't think about my previous success. I'm happy that the work I've done has been very successful.
I have had unsuccessful films, but I learned a lot from those films. I give my failures as much importance as my success.
Our choices are quite different: what attracts Salman and Shah Rukh are, I think, quite different from what attracts me. So in that sense, we are quite different, but I think we are fortunate to have had the kind of success that we've had.
I saw a lot of people have success handed to them that then exploited it. They didn't protect it or cherish it.
In general, when you have success on the field, you're more popular, and you have that fame that comes with it. You realize you're in the public eye more, and you've got to be a little bit more careful about some of the things you're doing out in public and make sure you're smart about the things you say.
