He urges students to be confident in themselves and live by discipline. He focused on living a balanced life. He mentioned that success starts with self-awareness, a positive mindset, and the courage to act. According to Mr. Imtiaz, success is built on discipline, perseverance, and dedication. He also stated that you (students) can realize your full potential and live a life of fulfillment and accomplishment. Success is a never-ending cycle of self-reflection and change.
