Be like Fire – give 100% to everything and forge your own paths as you progress in life. Think like Water – broaden your horizons, do different things in a unique way, and consider the problems as opportunities to achieve life’s goals. Open to the Air – Avoid comparing yourself to others. Everyone is unique and on his or her own path. Aim high and do whatever it takes to get there. Revolve like the Earth – be grounded, stay true to your roots, and have strong moral values. Think of space – take care of yourself, prioritise your personal goals. Follow the MEDS mantra, where M stands for Mind & Meditation, E for Exercise, D for a healthy diet, and S stands for Sound Sleep. Be grateful to your family, count your blessings, and enjoy your two years at IIMU.”
