Deepika Padukine learned many important lessons from her time as a badminton athlete. She is always on time and punctual because of the time management skills she learned from playing badminton. In addition badminton helped her to be self confident, independent and responsible.

Her days as a badminton athlete and her team did plenty of traveling. It helped her to be self confident because she learned how to interact with people from countries all over the world and she enjoyed experiencing and learning from different cultures.

Equally important, her experience with losing and being defeated in badminton helped her handled failures and bad experiences in her modeling and acting career. It made her realize that failure is a part of life. But, it doesn't mean that you should quit or give up on your goals.
