Manny Pacquiao (Pacman): Attitudes of Successful People

Pacman - Manny Pacquiao

If you practice hard, you can win every battle. ~ Manny Pacquiao

Manny Pacquiao is a famous personality in my country, not only because he is a Filipino, but because he is the world’s “Fighter of the Decade” in the sport of boxing.  He has achieved many titles that no other boxer has ever accomplished.  His achievements are indeed beyond the normal success a person can accomplish in a lifetime.

Personally, I’m not a boxing fan, and the truth is, I haven’t watched a single fight of Manny Pacquiao, because I don’t like watching people get beaten up.  However, I admire this person, not on his looks or even his skills in boxing, but because of his ATTITUDE.


1. Focus

Manny Pacquiao wants to be the best in boxing.  And unlike the rest of us, he didn’t just want it, he practiced and worked hard for it.  He has set his focus into winning and becoming the best in boxing.  Such focus took him to how successful he wanted to be.

FOCUS is an attitude that separates those people who achieve what they want in life and there are those who don’t.


When they show Manny Pacquiao on the local news before his fights, you will see how much he practice just to prepare for the fight.  Whether it rain or shine, he don’t stop preparing and practicing.  Even before his fight, I’m almost confident he will win because in life,

If you are dedicated into something, and you give the last drop of sweat just to prepare and work hard for it, I’m sure that sacrifice and dedication will be fruitful in the end.


Another admirable attitude of Manny Pacquiao is his determination.  The never give up attitude.  He doesn’t let outside forces, such as opinions and cynical comments, get in the way of his goal.

With his determination, he made the impossible, possible.


Most of us love to rush on things.  It’s like when we want something, we want to have it as soon as possible.  We don’t have the patience to wait.  That’s why if it does not happen immediately, we let go and chase for another thing.  In the process, we get tired of dreaming and just think its non-sense to dream.

The truth is, successful people didn’t achieve success overnight.  We think they did because we have only seen them at the time of their success.  We didn’t see their sacrifices and hard work when they were just on the way to success.

There’s no such thing as overnight success.  Success happens pursuant to process and habits.  There is a time for success, if you are willing to work and wait for it.


To complete the PACMAN formula is FAITH.  Belief that in the help of a great force, he can achieve impossible things.

For without that strong belief, the 110% faith in what you do, it may be hard for you to achieve the success and happiness that you want in life.
