“The exciting thing about challenges is that you want to break through, you don’t hover around thinking ‘eish I am not breaking through…’ The excitement is in pushing. Maybe I have a different perspective on life. The thought never crossed my mind.

“I don’t want to say I am abnormal, but I don’t get to think like that. Maybe I am wired differently,” he added.
