Actress Priyanka Chopra and her husband, singer Nick Jonas, shared some unique pearls of wisdom at the 18th Hindustan Times Leadership Summit on Friday. In a virtual chat, they revealed the advice they had for young people seeking to be leaders in their arenas.
Nick talked about his father, Kevin Jonas Sr. and how he has always taught him to be humble. “I am truly fortunate to have an incredible leader in my life. My father is an exceptional man with a great deal of knowledge. One of the things he always said was to walk humbly even in leadership. In that sense, his quote was ‘Live like you’re at the bottom, even if you’re at the top.’ Not to say that at some point in my life I felt at the top, but knowing that I have a responsibility in some way to walk humbly into success and at times when things are not going well, I think it is solely because of his influence. in my life and leadership. To sum it up, it’s just living as humbly as possible because those same people who are there on the rise could be there in the fall and it’s good to have friends, “he said.
Priyanka also shared what she thought was the most important quality in a leader. “They threw me into the abyss. I didn’t know the technique at all. I come from a family of doctors. The only thing I learned was to be a student of life, we cannot know everything. There is never going to be a situation, if you want to achieve an upward trajectory, where you will always be prepared for whatever you have to do. You will never be 100% prepared. You just have to keep your eyes and ears open and learn and listen instead of talking, ”he said.
During their conversation, Nick and Priyanka also talked about their work and all their recent projects. The couple were last here in March for Holi, but had to return to the United States when the coronavirus pandemic worsened. “I’m really counting on this pandemic to end. 2021 starting normally so that we can really travel, ”Priyanka said of her plans. “Obviously India is my home, but Nick has a great love for the country and we really wanted to get in. So hopefully as soon as this is all done and the world is back to normal, we will be back in Mumbai, “she added.
