He was the new king of Bollywood who did nothing wrong this year. From his superhero act in Krrish to the bronzed oh-so-smooth master thief in Dhoom 2, Hrithik Roshan was the star with his head firmly on his shoulders. He has tasted failure earlier and the refused to fly when he delivered this yearís biggest hits.
The hero is not the one who stands tall. I have always believed that the one who holds the promise to rise up again after every fall is the true hero. When they said that I was finished, I started again. I am sure there are going to be many such moments in my future. I think I will enjoy each and every one of them just as much.
I dare to dream. Nothing is impossible if you have vision. I am very clear about my goals and firmly believe in the maxim that you will never get anywhere if you donít know where to go.
Suffering leads to success. All of us have to face our share of struggles. I had to work through a debilitating stammer and a bad case of scoliosis. But I lifeís not about holding the best cards, but how well you play them. Today I realize that I am a star not inspite of my shortcomings, but because of them.
Compete only with yourself. I have learnt to take one step at a time. I am a climber. In my climb there have been some potholes but I have made my path up the hill. Right now, I have competition from some folks around me. But someday, I will be my own competition. I still have to learn to master this thought, and that I will. I am enjoying the stage I am in right now.
And learn to laugh. Thatís the secret ingredient for a happy life Ė a sense of humour. If you donít have the ability to laugh at yourself, and realize it is all just a game, then youíve lost already.
