Words of Manu
“When I was a kid I felt like I had a mental hindrage with the theme achievements and all that. I had dozens of hits, maybe hundreds. How did he deal with that? Like every kid. When I was out of a provincial team, my only resource was to close the strong door, get down the desk and cry. Then you grow up, learning from frustrations and having more tools. Until you're 35 and instead of crying, you hit some pineapples to the pillow, but then you think about why it happened and what to do so that, if it happens again, you don't feel that way.”
Manu also told about the tools that helped him in complicated situations: “ How will you overcome frustrations if you don't talk to yourself as you would talk to a friend? It's a very easy and simple concept that I put it into practice and helped me a lot.”
