Default Manny Pacquiao

NATURE versus NURTURE

In my five years in the seduction community, I’ve seen guys who, after doing everything, reading everything, learning everything, yet they do not progress in their romantic lives. And this became a puzzle for me. I kept wondering what kept them from improving?

Then it hit me... I saw this American idol audition... and some of these guys have taken singing by heart. Others had studied music for many years, practiced all their lives to get this chance to show what they got to the world. They’ve done everything, tried everything, but most of them still failed. And at that point, I realized why....

Anybody can be the greatest at something with proper training and guidance....But not everybody will be the greatest at some things simply because we are not created the same.

Anybody can say they want this and that, but some guys don’t have it in them to believe it. Maybe its in their genes, or in their Psyche, I don’t know. But one thing is for sure, they just do not have that capacity.

Yet, there are others who, despite all the odds, they become great. Probably because they already have that potential in them to be great!

Here is Emmanuel Dapidran Pacquiao. A malnourished kid, who come from a very poor family from General Santos City, who find it hard to make ends meet by selling doughnuts on the streets. A boy who came from a tough, hardened neighborhood, where crooks and criminals abound.

He had no ways and means to pursue his dreams in those days, yet he never gave up. Nobody believed that he’d be the greatest fighter at that time, but he never doubted himself. He also never doubted his faith in God.

When he took that boat from General Santos to Manila, Manny Pacquiao do not know how he'd become a great fighter. All he know was he wanted to be a great fighter.

Now, Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, broken world record after world record, beating legends after legends, is the only man ever to win 8 different world titles from 8 different weight divisions. A feat that could never be replicated again. Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, despite all the odds, is now considered one of “The Greatest Fighter of All Time”.

I believe this is so, because Manny Pacquiao always had that potential to become great. And to realize that greatness he needed to be trained by the likes of Rick Staheli and Freddie Roach.

The question is, even if Manny Pacquiao believed he can be great, and had the potential to be great, would he had been great if he was not trained by some of the greatest trainers of our time?



Great article what are your thoughts??

That IBO title was at Jnr Welter and he also held the Ring Magazine title at that weight

It seems the only person who doesn't believe Floyd will beat Pac is Floyd

Don't disagree. Doesn't change the fact that Floyd and his family have made numerous statements and have taken various positions that indicate he does not want to fight Pacquiao. It's comical actually.

i think manny thought he'd just turn up and beat marquez without barely trying in no.3.
he'd been winning while in cruise control in the lead up to it and didn't show due respect to marquez.
i would expect a much improved effort in no.4 tbh. a big win. we'll soon see.
