Addressing the audience at the 40th National Management Convention organised by the All India Management Association, Shahrukh Khan attributed his stupendous success to the fear that he has of losing or coming second. The actor also said that it is the fear of failure that constantly pushes him to work harder, more than he needs to at this stage of his career.
Khan said “I am scared of losing. I am scared of coming second. I am scared of not making it big. So, I have such a fear of failure that I work harder when even I don’t need to. I work longer when I don’t have to.”
“I never rest on my laurels because I feel that this will be taken away one day. I have this fear that if I don’t work hard enough I will lose what I have attained and not be able to continue to do so. I don’t have blood pressure, neither am I a heart victim, but I need to just work hard.”
“Failures also get you to find who your real friends are. The true strength of your relationship gets tested in the phase of strong adversity. I lost lots of friends post Ra.One, apart from losing a lot of audience too. And after Chennai Express, I haven’t made any new friends but I have a whole new set of enemies now.” Shahrukh added.
The superstar also tweeted late last night after the National Management Convention.
