‘Great people don’t do different things but they do the same things differently’ and therefore no matter whichever course or college you enroll yourself into, try to think out of the box. A great motivational speaker Jim Rohn has once rightly remarked ‘If you are not ready to risk the usual, then be prepared to live with the ordinary.’ Therefore Think, Innovation and Apply, give the world SOMETHING NEW!
