The day you connect with God, you will find that nothing bad has ever happened since the day you were born.”
He challenged the students to undertake the task of personal discovery, so that they know who they are and what they are made to do naturally. While sharing inspiring stories, the CEO emphasized the need for personal vision as well as the strategic need to drive the desire for knowledge.
