"At a societal level, such individuals create an atmosphere of hope, honesty & healing which is essential for any development. Because they have taken steps of change in their own lives, they have faith that even others can change their personal lives and their surroundings can become different. This empowerment is experiential and not just cerebral. They no longer feel cynical or apathetic, they become Initiators of Change.”
"The conference was the best thing that happened to me. It changed my perspective in a life altering way.”
"Everything that we do here has a reason and a thought process behind it, which gradually comes together and ignites the change within oneself. I have experienced that beautiful change within myself".
"It is not just the courage that you need to face your own shortcomings but doing something about it – by giving back what’ve cheated others, seeking to rebuild broken relationships, forgiving those who’ve humiliated us, apologizing to those we’ve exploited, ending out addictions and personal injustices. That is how begins the paradigm shift in mindsets of people when they start looking for solution-oriented personal transformation."
"Quiet time not only allows me to analyze what is right and wrong; it allows me to dwell on a thought which leads me to put it into action. And a series of actions shapes into my personality and I like the person I am growing into.”
“I believed in those moments that I had experienced at MRA and there was one little thing inside me that was constantly saying, "What you are doing is wrong?"
“Today ego does not come in my way; it doesn’t stop me from saying sorry and asking for forgiveness. Whereas it keeps on picking me when I hurt someone with my words, deeds or actions until I ask for forgiveness and until I make corrections where I have made mistakes."
"I had the most terrible encounter with anybody ever, probably the first encounter with myself, the real me.”
“When I realized the importance of listening to inner voice, I got courage to accept the real identity of me and the challenge to put things better in me.”
"A constant guidance comes from my inner voice; an incoming ray of hope in despair is how I feel being here and being the part of this movement."
"Quiet time generates such a positive energy that I have never lost hope of success. It only makes me think differently of trying to achieve my goal."
“When these burdens were let go, it paved way for development, for long thoughts inclined not on these issues but on something more productive and more useful.”
“If something remains incomplete, then my inner self keeps bothering me until I do it right.”
“I came to know - Who am I? What am I? What is my aim & goal for life? What I have to achieve? What I did till now? To what extent I was dealing my life badly?”
“I had walked out of Asia Plateau with lot of clarity of thought about the corrective & preventive actions to be taken immediately.”
“Everything that we do here has a reason and a thought process behind it, which gradually comes together and ignites the change within oneself. I have experienced that beautiful change within myself.”
“It taught me to value all such important relationships in my life which were in a broken and torn state and gave me the strength to rectify the mistakes and sustain the change.”
“The effect of change was immediate, but to sustain the after effect is the real challenge.”

“I grew in a wonderful manner with the help of IofC’s training I had received amidst the various problems I faced on a personal level.”
“The journey till here has given me an inspiration that I will not lose hope and I will never give up, always keep trying to be a better person each day and use each moment of the one life that I have to the fullest. Not to be distracted by any kind of unwanted and irrelevant elements, have the will power and the courage to strive and work hard to do the right thing for this society. Not losing hope due to failures but rather using them as a learning lesson and keep moving ahead to achieve that level of perfection and to always keep pushing myself to the limit.”
“Each person who comes in our life comes with a purpose – some give us experience, some teach a lesson, and some give happiness.”
“This experience was something new and different that I enjoyed, while at the same time it pushed me to new levels I didn’t know I could reach, both mentally and physically. I promised myself to continue to grow daily and discover new factors that define me. IofC-LMAD has completely changed the frame of my life.”
