Well, it’s all about King Khan himself. A personage with magnetic, charming and astound ‘personality’, has stolen more hearts than any other. He started his career at a young age of 23 and did a lot of plays in a number of television series. He, then decided to enter Bollywood. Today as a part of this industry he holds most of the prestigious designations as an Actor, a Producer and a Television presenter and climbing to this stage of life was not so easy for him. He has struggled hard enough to be there. Abdul Rehman or SRK, The Bollywood Badshaah or The King of Bollywood is truly an icon to which one can look up to for an inspiration.
There are reasons why you should be doing so.
- Being Positive (His positivity)
Yes, this is that little pesky thing we have heard a lot in our lives. But for him, this was his first step towards being a star. In the past, when he was struggling with an impecunious life he once muttered out these words, “I will rule this city one day.” Well this is not merely a statement. It was the soul for what he is today. He even enacted that very famous dialogue of ‘Om Shanti Om’:-”Agar kisi cheez ko dil se chaho toh puri kayanat usey tumse milane ki koshish me lag jaati hai.”
2. Do What you love and Love What you Do
SRK is one of those actors, who earned a degree in acting without any formal training. He was so ‘Real’ when it came to acting. His school days are a witness to his acting as even his teachers used to fall for his acting. He believes in not doing something that he doesn’t like but in doing something what he actually loves. Because that something represents HIM for being SOMETHING out of it.
3. Believe in Yourself
SRK quotes,” You should stand for what you believe in. People who mind won’t matter and people who matter won’t mind.”
Little Abdul had framed a mental picture where he was in Bollywood and he believed in it. Even his mother believed in it, had faith in that little picture. But the people in his society would disregard it as they believed it was impossible. Nothing demarcates him in front of his strong belief.
4. Work Hard
We learn this at every stage of our life. Some make this as a practice and some fail to do so. Life is full of acceptance and rejections. This doesn’t put an end to anything. When it comes to life, you just have to go on. Well SRK struggled a lot. He has built up his career on many rejected roles for which he had striven much, but he was determined upon his dream and a hard lifestyle never deter him. He achieved the brand title all because of his hard work, passion and self belief. And today ‘HE IS THE SUPERSTAR’.
5. Aim High but Be Down to Earth
Yes, this should be the primary motto of all Richie Riches out there but sadly some are not. But no worries! SRK is really down to earth. He is a charming persona and knows how to treat people. He has a good rapport with everyone working around him. He never lets anybody feel like he is having many cars, bungalows etc. Never ever! He believes that these are just tokens you get after your hard work and your ego should not get attached with them. He believes in ‘Treat people the same way as you want the same with yourself.’ And if in any case there is a heated discussion or someone is angry or upset then no doubt he knows how to placate them. At the end of the day, he is the one to win all the hearts and trust by the friendly treatment that he gives to others.
6. Indulge in your Work
Most people work but very few indulge in it. Indulging in the work that you have started has got its perks inside. SRK is known for his acting, charm and personality. He is famous for the act of being a lover. Be it a passionate one or obsessed one, an angry one or the romantic one. Any role he is in, he does it with a magic touch of perfection. And that is why his work is appreciated.
7. Be Greedy
It’s true that greed can take a wise up or bring a dim-witted down. It’s what all your greed is about. SRK believes that a person should be greedy for knowledge, intelligence, money and love. He is greedy for perfection, for wits, for the opportunity of making money. Always stand apart and take the initiative of your life and when an opportunity knocks on your door in life you should be awakened enough to grab it.
8. Be grateful
SRK never expected anything out of anybody. Whatever he gets, he names it as the God’s gift. He has got the talent, name, fame and success. But in case of money, he never ran out for it. And talking about materials, whatever he wished or wanted it just came to him. He projects an example of everything out of nothing, as he lived upon his principles and those sayings in the popular book, ‘The Secret’.
We have many things with us. For our lives and the moments, our experiences, friendships, achievements and failures, for everything we should be grateful towards each person who had participated in our success.
