“I’m from Saudi Arabia. I was raised in Canada then came to United States for university.
What basically gives you hope is to see that you’re not living alone in this world, whatever happens. And, um…you hear a lot of the pressure all around the world [in the news] almost every hour…
But what gives me hope is that we come from the same roots, as humans.
For me, I’m a simple man. I like anything. Like, me talking to you, I’m happy. See, I’m smiling.
It’s because, most of the things in life are the wants, not needs. The needs are just the things that you need to survive.
Like, you need to eat, you need to sleep. But, I want to have fun.
I’ll do anything to enjoy the moment.
I try to create fun from whatever I’m doing…I feel that…that’s what makes me happy.
I create fun out of nothing to remind myself that…simple is nice. That’s what gives me hope.
I have a motto. ‘No regrets.’ Because everything I do now or three minutes ago, it cannot come back.
Time…doesn’t stop for anybody…it just goes.
I always win. I don’t lose. I learn.
The thing that made me realize that I should live with no regret is time.
Time is the most important element I see in this life. It’s more important than money or health. Time always progresses. It doesn’t stop.
So everything you do, now, it’s gonna be history tomorrow.
It’s just timing.
I believe that there’s destiny. You have to work for whatever you want to do, but destiny, you’ve got to get tied with destiny, and you’ve got to believe.
We have to work for it. The sky doesn’t rain gold.
If you stop, take a deep breath, assess for three seconds. You’ll know what to do.
And, if people thought the same way…if people thought of time as the most important element…you’ll see everything more perfectly.
Although, nothing’s perfect.”
