How does Tom Brady keep on winning?
He surrounds himself with people who help him be his best self.
I’m a lifelong Kansas City Chiefs fan, so I was disappointed in the Super Bowl outcome.
Still, it’s a privilege to watch Tom Brady play.
At age 43, he’s the oldest quarterback ever to win a championship.
He gets the mental, physical, emotional, nutritional, and skill-development support that he needs to stay atop his profession.
Yes, Tom Brady has coaches and advisers.
The best in any profession have people help them do the right things in the right way to shorten the path to success.
Plenty of talented people never reach their potential because they try to lone-wolf-it.
It’s not arrogance, for the most part.
Sometimes it’s a poverty mentality.
I don’t want to pay for support. I’ll figure it out on my own.
Mostly, though, you lone-wolf-it because you fear that others will see you as weak or damaged.
Lone-wolfing-it is the fast-track to mediocrity.
It’s the school of hard knocks, and the tuition is costly.
The secret to the success of people like Tom Brady is that they don’t lone-wolf-it.
Surround yourself with people who help you be the best version of yourself.
You might not gain Brady-like stature, but you’ll go farther, rack up more wins, and make a much greater impact on the people and causes that mean the most to you.
