Deepika, who is an athlete herself, shared an empowering message on her social media in which she talked about failure, humility, passion and dedication. Get some first-hand inspiration by reading her quote:
“When I was growing up my father said to me, 'To be the best, always remember the three D's - Discipline, Dedication and Determination. Follow your heart. Do what you are passionate about.'
Sport has taught me how to handle failure. It has also taught me how to handle success. It has kept me grounded. It has taught me humility.
Two years ago I struggled with depression. I was sinking. I almost gave up. But it was the athlete in me that gave me the strength to fight and never ever give up!
And so I want to say to every girl and every boy and every woman and every man...play a sport...because it changed my life...and it will change yours too!
Sport has taught me how to survive! It has taught me how to fight! It has made me unstoppable!
