The New England Patriots are now focused on the beginning of the new season, and this will be the 19th season for Tom Brady. The quarterback may be busy at the moment, but he always has time for the kids from the Make-A-Wish Foundation at the Gillette Stadium.
Tom Brady posted a video on his Instagram story. We could hear him answering questions and talking to the Make-A-Wish kids. He didn’t forget to deliver some really inspiring words. When asked if he doubted himself when fans criticized him during the NFL Draft, Brady gave the perfect response.
“I never thought I’d be this successful. But I think it’s been a lot of things that are — I think sometimes in life you aren’t born with everything, you know? And sometimes in life, you’re born with things that maybe a real strength and other things that really aren’t strengths,” Brady said.
“And there were things that I was really good at physically and there’s things that I was really bad at physically. I think you have to recognize the things you do well and the things you don’t do well. And, you know, a lot of people are going to evaluate you, and, you know, especially when you’re in the public eye they’re going to criticize you.”
“And I think that you have to have a lot of inner belief in yourself. That the strengths that you have are going to be good enough for what you are going to be asked to do. You know, and I think sometimes that if you focus on things that you don’t have, that life can get hard, but if you focus on things that you do have, life can be very joyful. You know, when you can use your strengths, and use all the positive things in your life, it ends up being, you know, a great aspect of your life. When you focus on those positive things, a lot of momentum can build and it can build a lot of positive things with you and your relationships and your career and your job and things like that. Nobody’s born with everything. We’re all working our way and trying to do the best we can do,” the Patriots quarterback added.
We could never answer this question as good as him. Well done, Brady.
