If there is one person who personifies greatness, it is this man. An ordinary orphaned Delhi Boy coming to the city of dreams and ruling the film industry in India is not shot of a disney fairy tale. Times have changed, he has become wealthier but the one thing he has taught us is to chase our dreams with conviction and zeal.

2. Embrace Your Strengths

I remember an interview of Khan form the 90’s with a well renowned journalist. He was quoted saying when asked about how he was handling new found success, he replied ” If I had been arrogant I would have been so right when I was my mom’s favorite”.

One thing which has remained constant about the actor is his belief in himself. Many people did not believe in his potential at that time, but nobody can question his stardom or acting skills. This is the kind of attitude which makes all the difference in life.

3. Never Stop Experimenting

If you look at his career graph he is the most versatile performer of the industry. Despite his commercial success he has not shied away from doing ground breaking roles ( Swades, Chak De !, My Name Is Khan). There is no constant formula for success. But one must learn that we need to creatively experiment in order to explore ourselves. This is what the king of Bollywood has taught us.

4. It is Never too Late-  So Don’t Give Up
