Former New England Patriots quarterback and current Tampa Bay Buccaneer QB, Tom Brady, is famous for his dedication to the sport of football and it is no surprise that his incredible success came with secrets. However, the 44-year-old NFL star has just revealed a key tip that he has used in order to boost accomplishments: don’t blame other people.
The quarterback, who now plays for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, sat down the NFL writer Peter King to discuss in depth his thoughts on the matter of success on Football Morning in America. Essentially, he argued that it isn’t constructive for one to blame outside factors if something goes astray.
“Life is about always changing and adapting to different things. Today, the world wants to blame, and shame, and guilt, and fear everything all the time,” Brady stated to King. He went on to explain, “We would never teach our kids that, you know? We would never say, ‘This is how you’re gonna get through life the best — you’re gonna blame everyone when things don’t go right.’ Or, ‘I always get it my way but you should never get it your way.’ It’s not how to live a joyful life.”
Tom Brady says football is the ‘ultimate blame game’!
The Super Bowl champion commented that the nature of football is simple, but hard to execute. Brady said, “It’s a very simple game that’s so hard to execute. It’s a totally imperfect game that you’re trying to do as perfectly as possible. Every day I come out trying to do it. I’m hoping this is my best year,” before he voiced the fact that he believes football is, “the ultimate blame game.”
“General managers, head coaches, players, quarterbacks, receivers, defense, offense. It’s so easy to blame someone else. It’s so hard to say, ‘I didn’t get the job done and we collectively didn’t get the job done.’ That’s the best part about team sports. I picked a team where everybody’s like, ‘Hey, we gotta get better.’ It’s not, ‘I got all the answers. You guys just all screwed it up except me.’ Exact opposite way to play the game. You know? You gotta play it together,” Brady elaborated.
Brady, who ended up leading his new team to victory in his seventh Super Bowl win, also offered that once he was able to find the correct balance of workplace love, he has never been happier.
He detailed his experience and his positive sentiments, “If you’re doing what you love doing and you’re with people you love doing it with, it’s all good. You can go to the Bahamas and play golf with the worst threesome of all time and you’re gonna have a horrible time. Or you can go to the local muni with your three best friends and have the best time. I love the guys I’m working with.”
