SHAHRUKH KHAN’s speech at Yale: Don’t be afraid of being afraid!

SURVIVAL!

You have to know and learn that life is a not just a checklist of acquisitions, attainments and fulfillments; your qualifications and CVs don’t really matter. Instead, life is difficult and complicated and beyond anyone’s control. The humility to know this will help you survive its vicissitudes.But I don’t want to sound dark. My hope for all of you is that you retain a lifelong love of learning, that you never cease to dream exciting and inspiring dreams, and when you fail, you fail well enough to succeed the next time. Don’t be afraid of being afraid; be afraid of not facing your fears and failures.

In the end I will read out a text message I got today from my kid: “Papa, Chuck Norris has trained his dog to pick up its own poop because Chuck Norris will not take s**t from anyone.” So remember, you are fortunate enough to be a funambulist who has an amazing set of punching bags. Cherish them and failure is your fiendish friend. Keep him close and don’t take no s**t from anybody!

Bless you all and thanks for listening.
