Talk About Michael Jordan, Manny Pacquiao and Grace

Michael Jordan. Manny Pacquiao. Michael Phelps. Tiger Woods. All these athletes have something in common – they all made a BIG difference in their respective sport. And usually, sports attributes like perseverance, patience, determination, hard work, among others are considered, the marks of success for these athletes.
