Former eight-division world champion and Filipino senator Manny Pacquiao 59-7-2 (38) has spoken out about the keys to his success both in boxing and in life.
In a video posted by the BBC, Pacquiao identified five key areas that he believes will help anyone become successful in life.
The first thing on Pacquiao’s list: train harder.
“When you work hard, give your best in training, that you never did before in your life,” said Pacquiao. “When I train, I always push myself to the limit. I want to give me best. My best effort, my best skills, my best stamina, everything.”
Number two for Senator Pacquiao: be humble.
“Do not change you attitude. Most people are changing when they become successful in life,” warned Pacquiao. “The most important thing is turning back to the people who help you in the past, they’re a part of your success.”
Next up, stay relaxed.
“Third up, give time to yourself to enjoy your family,” said Pacquiao. “Give room to yourself to relax and cool down.”
The fourth rule is: have faith.
“Always include God in your plans, in your dreams, so that you can be successful in whatever your dream is. I humble myself before God and before others,” said Pacquiao.
Finally, number five: give back.
“I’m still amazed with myself, what I’ve done in boxing,” said Pacquiao. “Eight weight divisions. Many accomplishments in life. I’ve become a senator of the Republic of the Philippines, I never dreamt of that. What I have, I give back to the poor people. It’s the most important thing.”
Pacquiao is currently in camp preparing to face WBA “regular” welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse 39-4 (36) at Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on July 15.
