The road to success is never easy… Often, it is paved with sacrifices, determination, sweat, and tears. Loved by Pakistanis all over the world, comedian Danish Ali recently opened up about the struggles he had to face on his road to success.
Despite his humble beginnings, he worked hard for all his achievements. And he wants everyone to know that.
Here’s what Danish had to say:
Good luck to everyone giving their O, A level and inter exams, remember to do some nice breathing exercises and sleep loads and realize that a good grade will help you in life but it is not the only way forward, i got straight Cs through O Levels and A levels.
He goes in detail, about his school days:
I remember my O level chemistry teacher saying I was a horrible student and that I would fail and she put me down a lot. My Urdu teacher in 5th grade would almost curse my parents outloud infront of the entire classroom.
Almost at wit’s end….
I was shortlisted by Aga Khan Medical university twice but never made it. When i was selected in Ziauddin I failed my surgery exam in medschool. I was failing pharmacology and was told i would fail the year.
He found a way out!
I was living alone and needed money so started working in television while still in medschool.
He faced rejection in every phase of his life.
Everyone told me I would never become a doctor. Everyone told me I would never succeed as a comedian.
But he did not let one failure get him down!
Today i am both an MBBS and a successful comedian.
Danish ended it off by encouraging people to ignore those who put others down!
The people around you putting you down do not have any intelligence for themselves and only seek to lend you their incompetence at life. Pay them no attention. You got this.
Today, Danish is one of the most sought after persons in the industry.
This goes to show that hard work and dedication pays, but not everything is dependent on that one little grade!
Kudos to you, Danish Ali!
