When I was little girl, I dreamed of being a Bollywood actress. But then one day when I woke up, I was told I would never walk again. I was confined to a wheelchair.
I was sleeping in the back seat of my parent’s care when we were in a horrible car accident.
My dreams were shattered.
I did school plays and street dramas, but Bollywood seemed impossible.
I was in a wheelchair.
But then, just a few months ago, when I was visiting India, I saw a commercial for auditions for a reality show. And the winners were going to get their own Bollywood movie.
At first I tried to ignore the commercial because I thought it wasn’t for me.
But then my sister convinced me that I had to at least try. This was my one chance to try and live my dream. I couldn’t just let it go so easily.
So my sister and we literally showed up at 7AM at the auditions. And after that, everything was like a dream.
Week after week, I began to clear audition after audition.
I made it to the top 75 in a country of over 1 billion people.
But then the next round was a Bollywood dance round.
Sitting in my wheelchair, I danced my heart out. But it wasn’t enough.
The judges said I couldn’t dance.
Time to wake up. The dream was over.
But, over the years, I have learned that its not failure that sets you apart. We all fail. It is what you do after that that can make a difference.
I once read that Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team for lack of skill. Marilyn Monroe lost her acting contract after just 1 year because she was wasn’t beautiful enough, she wasn’t talented enough. And Albert Einstein was expelled from school and his teachers described him as mentally slow. But all of these people went on to achieve great things because they didn’t let their failure become fatal. They continued to try. They weren’t quitters.
And you know what?
I am not a quitter.
I am not going to let my failure become fatal. I am going to continue to strive and run after my Bollywood Dream.
And I invite you to join me on this journey. I encourage you to share my video and help get it into the hands of those who can make my dream a reality. Thank you!
I also hope this inspirational speech and motivational video encourages you to never quit despite failure and to continue to pursue your impossible dream. Failure is not an option.
