She’s Priyanka Chopra and here is my take on her top 10 Rules For Success.
Rule number 4 is my personal favorite, And I’m curious if you’re good which one you guys like the best. Also as Priyanka is talking; if she says something that really really resonates with you, Please leave it in the comments below and put quotes around it So other people can inspired as well. Enjoy!
Rule #1: Set Goals For Yourself
I don’t want to be called an actor. I don’t want to be called a star. I don’t want to have a label. I want to have a legacy. I want to be known as someone who has goals and achieves them, And whatever they might be, wherever they might be. I want to be limitless.
I want to breake stereotypes I want to go where no man or woman has gone before. And it might be a scary path And it might be a path that no one’s taken, But at least it’ll be just mine. I had the worst self-esteem when I was a kid I was made fun of because of the way I talked, Because of where I came from, I was made fun of on every level And the only way you can change that is setting goals for yourself, and saying “I’ll be the best version of me.”
“I don’t want to be called an actor. I don’t want to be called a star. I don’t want to have a label. I want to have a legacy.” – Priyanka Chopra
When I was 18 and I started doing movies I gave myself a year and a half. And I said, if I don’t; If I sense that I’m not good at what I’m doing And I don’t see something opening up for me, I’m going to go back to college. I always had a plan B I still always have a plan B. And that’s what I always tell young people, that You know, life doesn’t end, it just keeps moving. You have to put your blinkers on And find what you do best and just keep moving.
Rule #2: Don’t Be Conventional
America suddenly sat up and said ‘Oh’, this is a great business module. To take an international superstar and put them into something and that just elevates the popularity. Because today it’s not just about the domestic entertainment, it’s global. So now everyone wants that. But the women, because we’re beautiful.
Interviewer: -That you are.
And the “exotic, beautiful, Indian girl”, it’s an easier fit. I’ve gone to the left and decided never to do it. Because I did a show which is on my shoulders, I’m doing a movie in which I’m not the side chick, I’m the main villain of the movie, which is different. Who would debut as a villain? My first debut will be a villain, an antagonist. But to me, that strikes me as exciting. I don’t like being conventional. But I was tried to put into that box so much. That was the first place I was put into. All the movies that came to me was that. In fact Baywatch, I was being spoken to for another part.
And it was written for a man, that I told you last time So, I like my terms a little bit But the exotic, gorgeous, pretty girl in amazing clothes is so the fit of where people tried to put me. And I hope that doesn’t happen to anyone else coming in Because it’ll really ruin all the work I’ve done.
“My first debut will be a villain, an antagonist. But to me, that strikes me as exciting. I don’t like being conventional.” – Priyanka Chopra
Interviewer: So you’re like on the phone; “Deepika, let me just lay down the rules here”.
No, no, no, everyone can do what they want. We need to stand as a force to reckon with because our industry is that. Our industry is one of the most prolific in the world.
And we need to not be afraid to stand our ground on our feet and say, “I’m not settling”. And I hope that Indian talent comes in and do that. And I hope that me being in the position that I am in can give them the confidence to do it.
Rule #3: Work Super Hard
I’ve never known my life without movies, I don’t know what that would be like and now I’m doing music too in the last. I mean I made an albume I’ve almost 40 songs ready In the last tow years and I’ve finished 8 movies. So I’ve been able to …
Interviewer: -I’m sorry Superwomen where is your cape? I’m sorry what’s going on? You do you sleep?
“I’ve been working like the since I was 17 I don’t know how to do anything else And I haven’t found a reason to want to take a break yet” – Priyanka Chopra
I do, I do, but I do worked everyday I love what I do, and I have tow careers that I have to handle right now, And I don’t want to give up on either on of them and I don’t think I need to.
Interviewer:-Do you feel like if you don’t work you go crazy?
I think so
Interviewer:-Like no I can’t take because feel like …..
I’ve been working like the since I was 17 I don’t know how to do anything else And I haven’t found a reason to want to take a break yet, If you know what I mean.
Rule #4: #Believe In Yourself
“My name is Alex Parrish, protecting our country had always my dream”
Quantico’s my first audition, I knew I had to go in to this room and read these lines in front of all these people, But I was so nervous before I went in, So I went to the bathroom, I remember, before I went in, And looked in the mirror and it’s so stupid and cliche, I talked to myself, and I said, “What’s wrong with you?” “You’ve played the most difficult characters in the most complicated movies” I tossed my hair a little bit, felt great, and walked out. Did my bit, and got the job.
Rule #5: Have Boundaries
Interviewer: Priyanka, do you as an actor have any lines in your head In terms of what you will do and won’t do?
Interviewer: For sure…
I wouldn’t do it. Like never. I play bold parts. But I don’t like a lot of skin show. I don’t know how to explain it. Like in “Aitraaz”, I was always in pantsuits. But the intensity and the part was sexual, I didn’t have to dress it.
Interviewer: You don’t have to dress provocatively?
Yeah. I mean I would do it for a magazine cover here and there Because it’s glamorous and its pretty. Like one of the big reasons why I did the show With ABC was because they’re Disney So there’s only that much for American standards That we can do on the show Which is pretty much as much as Hindi films. There’s a difference between wearing a bikini and a bra and I understand that. And those lines are important to me.
Rule #6: Find The Right Balance
It’s a very conscious effort for me to do something that challenges me every year. I do one of those but, I also do those where I can put my hair down and just look pretty. I’m a girl I love doing it. I love blockbuster Hindi movies it’s my favorite genre of film Whether it’s in Hollywood or in Bollywood.
“It’s a very conscious effort for me to do something that challenges me every year.” – Priyanka Chopra
You take me for an ‘x-man’; I would much rather go see that than I would see a film which tells me a serious story, I’m that audience. Yeah sometimes I feel as an actor I don’t get pushed and challenged as much But you can’t always be doing the same thing. I like the Will Smith way of doing movies.
You do these big movies with big money and big budgets And they are commercial and they are successful And look hot and you look great and then you do that. So you have to be able balance both. Very few actors get to do it. And I’m glad that I’m a part of that elite group of people.
Rule #7: Be An Achiever
I don’t consider myself a singer I don’t consider myself an actor I consider myself an achiever.
You give me anything, You’ll tell me to paint the walls of the studio And I’ll do the best damn painting job you’ve ever seen.
That’s how I’ve always been I didn’t know I was gonna be an actress -Right I didn’t know I was gonna be a musician But now, whatever opportunities I get I trying turn them to “Let’s see what will happened”
“I don’t consider myself a singer I don’t consider myself an actor I consider myself an achiever.” – Priyanka Chopra
Hard work is something i know i can damn well do
So I do that …… alright I’ll try something else. But I want to expand myself as an entertainer as a performer Whether that’s music, whether that’s tv Whether that’s films, whether that’s production, anything.
Rule #8: Stay Committed
Interviewer: It is now, Priyanka, 8 o’ clock. You just finished shooting And now you’re heading to a party.
I’m heading to the launch of of the magazine Which is the W Magazine which is having a party for the launch of its Royals issue. I’m on their covers, so I’m heading their now, yes. Kill me!
Interviewer: You don’t look like you’re feeling a ‘Kill Me!’ moment. How do you do that?
That’s never the debate Anu. That’s why people don’t think I’m ever tired.
“My word is my bond. It’s my commitment I’m professional. My inherent nature is that You have to keep working if you’re committed to something.” – Priyanka Chopra
Interviewer: So how do you do this? How do you will yourself into not being tired?
It’s only because all the stuff that I have to do is what I need to do. I don’t have time for unnecessary work between two continents. My word is my bond. It’s my commitment I’m professional. My inherent nature is that You have to keep working if you’re committed to something.
Interviewer: So you’re tired, but when you step out of this car It’s going to be the million dollar smile.
No one will know. That’s the thing. My mum used to say this to me. As a woman, no one should see the chinks in your armour Because it is only your own. We’re strong because we have the ability as women To be able to hold on to a lot of emotional, a lot of things that are thrown at us. But we just have to remember that, don’t let the world see your weakness.
Rule #9: Don’t Be Afraid To Dream
The most beautiful thing about having dreams is That it’s in your hands how big your dreams become. And this film taught me that. I’ve come here only to intoduce you to the idea of saying that No one can tell you that your dream is too small! or your dream can’t come true Or your dream can’t be allowed because you’re a girl because you’re a boy Because you look a certain way or because you come from a certain place.
“Don’t be afraid to dream guys because they do come true, they really do.” – Priyanka Chopra
I’m not even know this turn and I’m playing Mary Kom I mean who would thought that. I’m extremely honored to be sitting in front of all of you Wonderful wonderful really smart people and talking to you About my dream which came true doing this film. Don’t be afraid to dream guys because they do come true, they really do.
Rule #10: Become Irreplaceable
When I was very young, I was 19 and I was doing the first few movies, I remember the producer just said, “Well, if she can’t work it out, it’s fine, we’ll just cast someone else.” “Girls are replaceable.”
Subconsciously, it really worked on my mind And I started picking up parts which were strong Which were not just the damsel in distress waiting for someone to rescue me. Now 13-15 years later, the movies I do I’m irreplaceable.
