I’M A very strong believer in God. I believe God provided us with a universe that you can mould to how you want it. If you plant a seed you get a tree. If you plant an apple seed, you get an apple tree. If you plant a seed of success, you get success.

But you can’t be too specific. You can’t say, I want an apple tree with some plums on it. You plant your seed, you work hard towards it, you nurture it and you get what you want.

You’re not in control of the time, how long it takes or how it comes, you just have to be willing to take what comes with it. For me, that means going out to Russia. You have to be willing to take on challenges and sacrifice.
