They lead glamourous lives, travel the world, and are an inspiration to millions around the world. But behind that glitz is years of hard-work, and numerous difficulties that they have bravely overcome. Here's what they learnt along the way.
“You should not take success and failure too seriously. You learn this with experience and maturity. Of course, you get upset, you feel disappointed by failure – that’s normal. Having said that, to survive you need to shrug off the failure, and move forward.”
“Whenever I feel bad, I use that feeling to motivate me to work harder. I only allow myself one day to feel sorry for myself. When I’m not feeling my best I ask myself, ‘What are you gonna do about it?’ I use the negativity to fuel the transformation into a better me.”

“Life just keeps moving. You have to keep your blinkers on. Find what you do best and keep moving.”
“I define my success, I acknowledge my failures but I also acknowledge that I haven’t failed, my attempts have. There is a big difference. When people don’t know how to differentiate between the two, everybody piles on with the insecurity of being called a failure. That is a very big mistake that people allow others to make on their behalf.”
“I feel sometimes when you follow your gut and instinct and you don’t feel afraid, I think god blesses you… It is said that luck follows those who follow their instincts, and I have just followed my instincts.”
