His frustration comes from the fact that 99 percent of the time, he deals with people when they are involved in a negative situation.
And 99 percent of these people will not get the result that is satisfactory to them, he noted.
“That is frustrating,” he emphasized.

With his stressful career choices, it is Bishop’s family that helps him relax.
He’s always been active — running, working out and mountain biking. Now he does those things with his sons.
“I’m doing something I enjoy and I’m spending quality time with my boys,” he said.
Though physical courage comes easy to Bishop, it is moral courage that he believes should be recognized with awards and is the most difficult to maintain.
“Moral courage is a lot harder to come by than physical courage. Physical courage is doing your job in the face of danger, that’s pretty easy.
“Moral courage is doing what’s right all the time, even in the face of pressure — from peers, sometimes from employers and others. It’s toughest when you think nobody will find out about it.
“Those who are most courageous are the ones who do what is morally right all the time. That’s courage. That’s being brave,” Bishop emphasized.
It is that sense of courage and the work ethic his father instilled in him that Bishop hopes to pass along to his own sons.
“The example that he (his father) set — if I live to be half the man he is, I’ll be successful,” Bishop said.
