How did Tom Brady become one of the best Quarterbacks of all-time? Determination!
You need to be able to create and sustain a determined mindset in order to accomplish your goals.
What is determination? It’s defined as the Firmness of Purpose — Not Giving Up — Overcoming.
Tom is a perfect example of this as when he first started at the university of Michigan he was 7th on the depth chart at QB. He eventually worked his way to the backup his first two years and finally to started in his last two.
Even though Tom had showed his determination in college and had some success, he wasn’t a highly sought after QB prospect in the NFL draft as he ended up getting drafted #199 in the 6th round…by the way, there are only 7 rounds.
He didn’t start a game in the NFL until his second year and only after the starter, Drew Bledsoe got hurt. Tom still upset about being drafted so late wanted to prove everyone wrong…boy did he. Tom took the Patriots to the super bowl that year and won it. He has never looked back…
Not everyone can become a super bowl winning quarterback, but everyone can develop a determined mindset.
There are three things you need to do in order to develop a determined mindset…
1) Know What You Want
2) Believe It!
3) Take Action
