Life teaches you many lessons as you go along. We asked familiar faces from the TV industry about that one value that has helped them stand in good stead and which they’d like to pass on to others. Here is what they had to say.
Be a good human being first and then a good professional. Be good to people and they will be good to you in return. Have a big heart and be generous too. If you are focussed on learning and understanding things in life, grasp knowledge not mere technicalities.”
I’ve noticed that most people are insecure about who they truly are or they’re scared to let the world see their true self, so they become pretentious. So, I would teach them to be true to themselves, to let go of the fear of rejection and to just be themselves. Only that can give mental freedom and make one truly happy.”
I would say maintain a positive mental attitude. It brings you inner peace and removes negativity, frustration and anger. It makes you a better person, personally as well as professionally. A positive attitude helps you survive through all odds. Optimism is important; when you feel positive, it shows in your personality and work as well.”
I would teach someone to think before they speak. Words once spoken can never be taken back. They can hurt a person more than one can imagine. Another thing I would like to instill in others is patience. It’s the most important value in life. A person without patience can never be at peace. Patience is needed in every sphere of life, be it in a relationship or career.”
If I had to impart a value, I would teach people to be humble in life. Before chasing other things, one should be a good human being. Once you become a good person, the rest will follow.”
