« All Glory is Fleeting | Main | The Not So End of the World »

December 13, 2012


Thank you!

It reminds me an email tag or signature lines that I saw;

"Adversity breaks some people, but there are others who break the record."

Robert S

Some additional lessons learnt:
1. Do not take your eye off for a second. It is a competitive sport.
2. Agree with the author: Manny showed class in walking over to Juan and congratulate him.
3. The champion admits his mistake, leanrs from it. Hopefully this will help in next fight.
4. Seems that Manny and Juan have repect and love for each other. Seen in their interactions after fight and interviews.
Good Fight and Great Champions.

THANKS..Nice story..i really like what Rocky Balboa said…

The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are - it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is going to hit as hard as life... but it ain't about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done.

It reminds me of my slip in a meeting the other day, what a shame... ^ ^.

What happened is what happened, important thing is how you react on it. I can do better next time.


Oh..this reminds me of something that I read when I was feeling all time down in my life at a point and that which helped me come back to what I am now: "Our greatest glory is not in never falling. But in getting up every time we do"..

Careful from Manila

Manny had won four of the previous five rounds. He was way ahead in the sixth. Marquez nose was broken, face was bloody. Manny's endless punches and crowd shouting "Finish him, Finish him." What happened is a great but age old lesson "It ain't over till it's over." Manny, by his own admission, got careless and did not keep his left hand high enough. A small hole, an opportunity, and falling Marquez, mustered all energy and delivered a punch. One second before the end of round, the guy who was in contol had fallen flat on his face.
Such is an irony of fate or cost of carelessness.

Chris - a great fan of Pacman :-)

Nice reflection...that boxing match has plenty of lessons to savor over a cup of coffee (or maybe some beer) the saying goes...sometimes you get the bear, other times the bear gets you...hence, one of the keys to great heights is to catch as many bears as possible even after having been wrestled by those bears...
