Playing sports has changed Bollywood actor Deepika Padukone’s life in more ways than one. 

In a Facebook post on Monday, the “Bajirao Mastani” actor wrote, “When I was growing up my father said to me, "To be the best, always remember the three D's - Discipline, Dedication and Determination. Follow your heart. Do what you are passionate about."

“Sport has taught me how to handle failure. It has also taught me how to handle success. It has kept me grounded. It has taught me humility,” she wrote.

She added, “Sport has taught me how to survive! It has taught me how to fight! It has made me unstoppable!”

Deepika also shared a video with the post – shot for a sportswear brand, but none the less inspiring.

When I was growing up my father said to me, "To be the best, always remember the three D's - Discipline, Dedication and Determination. Follow your heart. Do what you are passionate about." Sport has taught me how to handle failure. It has also taught me how to handle success. It has kept me grounded. It has taught me humility. Two years ago I struggled with depression. I was sinking. I almost gave up. But it was the athlete in me that gave me the strength to fight and never ever give up! And so I want to say to every girl and every boy and every woman and every man...play a sport...because it changed my life...and it will change yours too! Sport has taught me how to survive! It has taught me how to fight! It has made me unstoppable! #JustDoIt
