When asked about his achievements, Ian is quick to acknowledge God's help as epitomised in a verse from the Bible; "Lord you have established our peace and all we have achieved you have done for us."

Ian believes that most people can do anything if they apply themselves.
  • His first motto is; "Vision without action is just a dream, Action without vision just passes the time but vision with action can change the world."
  • His other motto is "Don't Ever Give Up".
