"The moment you accept responsibility for everything in your life, is the moment you gain the power to change anything in your life."

How one moment of "YES" changed my life. 
I was first introduced to the concept of "Let's make a difference by one of my close friend. I had a great desire to know what happens at Asia Plateau. Why do people go there? and why the second time people are more interested to go there than the first time. I was very curious to go there too and see what happens there, I had hundreds   of questions in my mind about LMAD. I tried to know more about it from my friend, but she said, " you need to experience it by Yourself ". And my journey started with LMAD YOUTH CONFERENCE 2018.

When I first stepped into Asia Plateau, then it was a different feel. There was a different look . Premises look very beautiful, somewhere i felt peace. There were young  people from all walks of life .I was not able to understand what is going to happen next. But gradually I settled down and mixed up with the people around me.

"The Quieter you become, The more you can hear"
I was introduced with the concept of 'Quiet Time' for the very first time in the Asia Plateau. We were given a diary and were asked to write all the quiet time thoughts in that white diary. I still remember my first quiet time. I did not understand what was happening, I was  not able to  write anything in that Diary on the first day, but after doing quiet time.,I realised that I have to do this everyday. It is something when your heart is still in the presence of God no matter what you happen to be doing. Sometime you just need a break in a beautiful place alone to figure everything out.

From the first day onwards we told a lot about MRA. There were so many questions in front of me, But on the last day I got  answers to most of them . There, I explored a lot about me, how I was before this youth conference and then I came to realize what little changes are required in me. I came to know myself, my aims,my goals, my career. Everything I thought was about improving myself, and how do I build up my relationship with my family my friends and with others.

Listen to the wind - IT TALKS
Listen to the Silence - IT SPEAKS
Listen to your heart - IT KNOWS
IT KNOWS - What Heart knows is the inner voice, I heard my inner voice that told me I am essential, stop caring about what others think. Instead of waiting for destination, start finding happiness while you are on the journey. When I heard my inner voice then positive vibes started coming out from within me.

LMAD gives me the meaning in life. I accept myself as i am, I fight with my fears. I always count my strength. The one constant thing in our life is change, we cannot avoid it. Trust me i know this because   i was very skilled and deflecting change in my life. I think change has the ability to catch up with you at some point in your life.

The LMAD family has given me a lot. I took a lot of things from Asia Plateau, and lot of things got answered.

I had some unsettled things in my family that was bothering me all the time. After that I talked with Viral Bhai what should I do? I was very upset about that thing which always kept bothering me, I cried a lot, and I poured my heart out to him. He gave me a very good advice to get out of that thing. Thank you Viral Bhai for listening me.

I would like to conclude by saying that,-Your meaning in life gives you purpose and sets the directions, without meaning you will spend the rest of your life wandering through aimlessly with no direction, focus or purpose.
