Who are your heroes? Your mentors? You don’t have to personally know each person you look up to, and there are countless examples out there to study and watch and read about.
Enter Tom Brady.
Brady just won his 7th Super Bowl and his 5th Super Bowl MVP honor. He is the NFL’s winningest quarterback and has proven to be one of the ultimate competitors. Let's look at a few traits he has embodied that we can learn from!
Worker - Brady was drafted in the 6th round and worked to be ready when his chance came (became first string QB because of injury in 2001). He watches hours of film, works tirelessly on his body, and works on his mental toughness. He has a growth mindset and outworks the guys around him.
Humble - Brady constantly praises the guys around him and tries to put the attention on their abilities instead of his own. This makes a super star also a good teammate. He says things like “It takes a lot of people to get us to where we are” and “I’m so proud of these guys, we believed we could do it all along.”
Confident - Brady believes in himself. He has put in the work to trust himself in big moments, and he stays present with those big moments. He also bets on himself. After New England drafted him, he apparently said to owner Robert Kraft when he first met him, “I’m the best decision this organization has ever made.”
