Since childhood, his father always told him; "Be normal and you will be normal". Although he heard these simply words hundreds of times, as a child, he never understood the meaning. Only when he reached his rebellious mid teens did he confront his father about this and then the full meaning was explained. "Do the things normal people do and you will only achieve what normal people achieve!" his father explained. Those words had a major impact and effect on everything Wiets did in his life. Those words drove him to much greater heights, gave him the strength and courage to be different - very different from most other people.
