Tom Brady’s 10 winning rules

  1. Confidence - He is not only confident, but he tries to make his team have the same feeling. According to the player, “In some degrees, I think you can fake until you make it, and I think you can show enthusiasm and confidence even when it’s just beginning. As a leader, you have to bring it to the team.”
  2. Work under pressure - In the past he often lost his temper when he was under pressure. Of course, there is a lot of adrenaline when you are playing, but Brady was often seeing screaming at his coach’s face or at anyone who he believed was on his way. Now he knows how to do under pressure and he became much more mature.
  3. Understand his adversary - Tom Brady doesn’t just spend a lot of time improving his moves and motivating the team. The best way to beat your opponents is by knowing how they think and predicting their next step. Tom Brady knows it, and before a match, he thoroughly analyses the other team and studies their strategies and moves. This dedication gives him and his team advantage on the competition.
  4. Be competitive - Tom Brady is known for being “the most competitive person you will ever meet.” Of course, there are some downsides of it: we have seen his anger when he loses. Teammates revealed that he gave the team a pep-talk to make sure they would win a charity game against an amateur team.
  5. Deals with constructive criticism - Tom Brady is one of the best quarterback of all time. But Bill Belichick, his former coach, didn’t hold back when he needs to call Brady’s attention to his behavior on a match or when he doesn’t deliver what was expected. Brady recognizes the need for that criticism.
  6. Great communication - Tom Brady is a master of communication. Josh McDaniels, the Patriots offensive coordinator, praised Brady for his ability to communicate with players of all ages.
  7. Works hard and love it - ”I just love working hard. I love being part of a team. I love working toward a common goal,” the athlete revealed during an interview. His dedication also motivates the team to be committed and work just as hard as he does.
  8. Have a supportive family – Tom Brady is married to Gisele Bündchen. He has three children, two of them with the Brazilian model, and all the family is very proud of his success and very supportive. Gisele celebrated when Tom Brady won his sixth Super Bowl. She shared a family picture, praising the player for his “tireless commitment, discipline and hard work.”
  9.  Take responsibilities - As a great leader, Tom Brady takes responsibility for his actions and also for his team. When the Patriots were not on their best shape, we often saw the quarterback saying it was his fault. In 2018, after the Patriots lost a game, he affirmed that “it was definitely my fault.”
  10. Take a rest - “Proper sleep has helped me get to where I am today as an athlete, and it is something that I continue to rely on every day,” Brady said. During the offseason, he goes easier on himself and we often see Tom Brady and his family enjoying life on Costa Rica, where they have a house.

Tom Brady’s exceptional life

Tom Brady: 43 years old for an NFL player is really a long time and he has won the right to play the tenth Super Bowl of his life at his age, in a new team that before him had obtained more delusion than success, in a new environment after twenty years of victories in New England.

But how does he do it?

Philosophy: “When it’s time for the race to start, you put one foot in front of the other. The rest isn’t up to you. Everything will happen at the pace that it needs to happen. You can’t know what it’ll be like until then. So why not appreciate and enjoy the journey?

Mindset: “I’m trying to do things that have never been done in my sport. That’s actually fun for me, too, because I know I can do them. When a team gives you the opportunity to do those things with them, well … if not with them, then who?”

Psychology: “At some point, you have to throw your whole body into what you’re doing. You have to say, Let’s ride. Let’s see what we got. I want to show everybody what I got.”
