I always try to learn from my failures: Saqib
There have been some hits and some misses in his career, but Saqib Saleem has learnt to embrace failures. The actor says failure – the first step towards success – is the best teacher. "Failure is the best teacher. It teaches you a lot in life and makes you who you are. It is a part of life. Yes, you feel bad when you fail but, I think I make sure I motivate myself even more and work harder to achieve my goal in life," said Saqib.
"Even after failures, I keep trying till I succeed in what I wish to achieve," added the actor, who opened up about his struggle with failures in Chandigarh. He ventured into Bollywood in 2011 with Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge and gained popularity with films like Mere Dad Ki Maruti and Dishoom.
Saqib, who hails from Delhi, also featured in projects like Bombay Talkies, Hawaa Hawaai, Dobaara: See Your Evil and Race 3. "I consider failure as a part of life and I always try to learn from my failures. It is not every time you get success. Yes, it is true everyone aims to achieve success, but failures are the first step towards success."
Looking back at his own life, he said: "If you don't face failures, you will never know the value of success is what I believe."
