But whether you’re a fan or not, you can’t help but admire Tom Brady’s accomplishments. He didn’t start off being the best – in 2000, they chose 198 people before they drafted him. But he practiced everyday; everyday he practiced until he became legendary. That’s a lesson I think everyone can stand to adopt in their own lives.
We tend to call people lucky, extraordinarily gifted, special, when they are at the top of their game. And I believe there are indeed people with special talents. BUT, there is a lot to be said for hard work and determination. And if we work as hard at our dreams, who knows what we can accomplish.
DO YOUR JOB is the (unofficial) Patriot motto. Today, I’m going to be Tom Brady-esque at my job – I’m going to show up, do my best and work my hardest and do the best job I can.
Best Superbowl ad: Loctite for the win. I loved the Jamaican music and the awkward dancers. Fanny packs are back!
