An Inspiring Moment shared (AIMs) with Team 1 - Dr. Rajah Balakrishna

My motto in life is
to work to my satisfaction and leave the rest to God and always think positive.

Thinking positive can change our life and our way of thinking. Tomorrow can be good or bad but both cannot last for long. We have to be prepared to take fortune & mis-fortune equally. Waiting for our turn of beautiful tomorrow keeps our life going.
