They have mastered the art of winning. And sometimes they give us a peek into how they do it.
In this series, we bring you your weekly shot of wisdom from super achievers.
Sushmita Sen might be in her 40s now, but she says she has lots of aspirations like a 12-year-old child.
'I have many things to do... I want to learn skiing and parallel bar gymnastics. I want to go back to diving,' the former Miss Universe-turned-actress said on the sidelines of the Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2018.
And she added she was not done professionally either: 'I have to do a film with which I can take a bow. I would like to give back all the love... I owe it to the people who love me. It doesn't matter if they are five or 5,000. I have to do a film for them and make sure that it's a huge hit. I'm taking my time but I'll do it.'
What keeps her going?
In one Instagram post, Sushmita said that a 'good decision is one that moves us forward'.
In another, she quoted author Nicholas Sparks: 'It's the possibility that keeps me going, not the guarantee.'
