Every human being has a story to tell. Some sad, some inspiring, some happy and some mere facts. But one thing is common in all – Each one is special on its own.
It has been said that the success is a journey and not a destination. In the same way, Mahammad Rafique has perceived success as a journey and not a destination in his life. He believes if he looks success as a destination then the success story will end. That is the reason his journey has been going on for many years and is still going on.
He is confident, supportive, self-motivated and succeeds despite all odds. He believes life is a mixed package of happiness and sorrow. It is about living every moment in it, to its fullest. Life is a race some finish early and some are yet to finish. In this race, it only matters if we finish it or give up.
