"When you work hard, luck swings your way. There will be challenges in life but when you work hard, you can overcome the challenges. So, don't think about luck, just focus on hard work. Performance will never be consistently upwards but strong people can overcome the lows," he said at the 'Support My School' programme of the NDTV.
On the importance of team work, Tendulkar said, "All the obstacles can be tackled when your are together. Even in the (2011) World Cup, we took it as just another tournament. We decided to stick to each other."
