It is said that young people in today’s times in society, a group of people known as ‘Millennials’ are struggling to find their purpose in life more than any other period in human history. Manny Pacquiao has gone on record on what his is and, if you’re looking for a bit of inspiration today, you’ve come to the right place.

Outside of his boxing career the story of Manny Pacquiao is famous at this stage.

Coming from poverty that most could not even fathom to rise to the very top of sport and politics, Manny Pacquiao has beaten the odds perhaps more than anyone.

Speaking at his Oxford Union address touched on this:

“I believe that I was born for the purpose that I am destined to serve for an inspiration for the average Filipino and the rest of the world. To fight, to rise above adversity. To conquer and defy and to embrace life in all its difficulties. Manny Pacquiao is the best fairy tale that every Filipino could tell and retell to all generations yet to come. Manny Pacquiao’s story is incredible but true. Miracles do happen. Dreams do come through. Being poor doesn’t mean one does have to die poor. Hard work and persistence will set you free from poverty but it’s faith that will take you to the very top.”

Pacquiao returns to this boxing ring in January against Adrien Broner with all details to be officially confirmed very shortly.
