MIANWALI (92 News) – Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan on Sunday urged students to learn from tough times.
Addressing the 7th Annual Convocation of NAMAL University in Mianwali, the prime minister said, “The tough times always teach and if you learn from it, it’s because you have higher education.” “It helps you analyse your faults and gives you a big advantage, the premier said. Never fear bad times, he said. “Success is learning from bad times,” he added.

All need to do fix our qibla
“Firstly, all need to do is fix your qibla, your life’s roadmap, he said. In the Holy Quran God says He made us for a reason. Each person must find their purpose. It’s in your heart, not your mind,” the premier said. “You must make your mind go where your heart is, PM Khan advised the students. “I’ve spent my life following my heart.”
Everyone can achieve its dream
“Remember, God has given us a lot of strength and we spend most of our lives without knowing what God has given us, he told students. “We don’t even try to access that strength,” Imran Khan said.
He reminded the students that whatever they can picture, they can achieve. “This is the power in you. Whatever you can dream, you can do.” He said humans accept defeat and lose heart but God has given you the qualities to do whatever you want.
