Day 41: Have Faith

“I am really happy that I am ahead of my schedule, in respect to last year and I hope everything keeps turning for the better.”

“I take every day as a single battle.  I never think about tomorrow, because somehow it never comes.  So every day I try and give my best.  Every day I try and put in the effort to do the work.  I am trying to do all the necessary things that will make me happy at the end of the day. ”

“I would definitely say it is a little half and half.  I always had it as a kid and I have been working on it over the years.  I try to really improve it.  Willpower is a really powerful tool.  If you can hammer than you should do it.”

“I have been pushing and pushing and pushing.  I have no fear that something could happen.  I hold the line and I know what I want so I go for it.”

When talking about his 2 helpers Arpan and Anupam.  “They are the most precious tools for this performance.  They support me in every way.   They care for me.  They know in advance what I need.  What is good for me.  Which kind of food I want.  So they pave the way for a better performance. I would really like to thank them.”

Andrea then went on to offer appreciation to all those who have supported him.  “I am really happy that I can inspire people.”

“Meditation and concentration are very powerful tools.  They give the extra kick let’s say.  Also faith.  You have to have faith in something. This belief pushes you forward when you get in trouble. Then this faith can carry you on.  It is an additional power that I think everybody needs.”
