What if Tom Brady had given up after being picked 199th in the NFL draft? This video shows his infamous 40 yard dash in the 2000 Combine (it doesn’t look slow to me, but I’m no combine expert). •
Brady wrote, “This is what they said about me then….. Poor build, skinny, lacks great physical stature and strength, lacks mobility and ability to avoid the rush, lacks a really strong arm, can’t drive the ball downfield, Does not throw a really tight spiral, system-type player who can get exposed if forced to ad lib, gets knocked down easily.” You can prove em right or you can prove em wrong. And Brady definitely proved them wrong.
When someone tells your teen they can’t do something, remind them of this truth. Don’t let other people’s opinions or fears detract them from their goals. So much of our life is determined by our mindset. We teach teens and parents to develop a growth mindset and tackle those dreams.
I have so much faith in you. I have so much faith in your teens. You’ve got this.
