"It's the lack of faith that makes people afraid of meeting challenges, and I believe in myself."
So by faith, he meant faith in yourself ... which you should never lose no mater what!
"Life is a gamble. You can get hurt, but people die in plane crashes, lose their arms and legs in car accidents; people die every day. Same with fighters: some die, some get hurt, some go on. You just don't let yourself believe it will happen to you."
In short; ships aren't made to anchor in a safe harbor, they're meant to sail.
so go on in your path and stop worrying about what might or might not happen.
"What keeps me going is goals."
Not having goals in life is like shooting in the dark.
You do the effort but gain nothing, or even lose.
Setting goals and achieving them can be extremely fun! You'll have that sense of achievement and fulfillment.
"Silence is golden when you can't think of a good answer."
Reminds me of an old saying: "If talking is worth silver, then silence is worth gold."
of course that doesn't mean that you should not express your mind; it rather means that you should say something useful or hold your tongue.
Too much blabbering can be harmful and annoying.
"I never thought of losing, but now that it's happened, the only thing is to do it right. That's my obligation to all the people who believe in me. We all have to take defeats in life."
And defeats should not hold us back; If you fall off your horse back, get yourself together and ride back on it.
