“If you don’t believe in yourself why is anyone else going to believe in you?”
When you look at Tom Brady today, you see a super-successful guy at the top who’s married to one of the highest paid supermodels in the world, has many SuperBowl rings and is arguably the greatest quarterback of all time. Seeing him from the top down, it’s easy to assume he’s gotten lucky, but many people don’t know about where he first started out.
Tom Brady’s early life was nothing glorious — it was a constant struggle for recognition. He was just a normal guy, he didn’t even start as a quarterback his entire time in college. He wasn’t taken seriously — he was skinny and picked in the 6th round.
What the scouts failed to look at, though, was his heart and undying determination. Tom Brady’s love for the game — the fact that he can’t see himself doing anything else. What made Brady different and what the scouts didn’t look at: is his work ethic, coachability, discipline.

Or are you going to fight to prove people wrong?
