“Interviewers often ask me. “How do you keep staying strong, not just for a year or two, but for that long?” I always give them the same answer. “Don’t let yourself get bored.” That’s the key. Because this is the world of victory or defeat. If you don’t keep making efforts every day, you cannot keep winning.” – Daigo Umehara
