When asked, “What inspires you?”:

“The fact that we have a new mercy every morning. This means I receive a brand-new opportunity every time I get the chance to open up my eyes and try hard so that I can be 1% better than what I was yesterday. Growth is a lifetime process. There is nothing impossible in this world and everything you set your mind to you have the power and the potential to do it… there is a reason to WHY nobody understands that crazy idea ONLY you had.”
