Tom Brady’s Mindset

Being one of only two players to win 5 super bowls makes Tom Brady a really special football quarterback. As if that feat was not great, Brady set the record of being the only quarterback who won 5 Super Bowls playing for the same team. However, that is only the beginning of what puts him in a league of his own.

He has 4 Super Bowl MVP awards (the most), has been into a dozen Pro Bowls, has 2 league MPV awards to his name, and has seen his team win more division titles as a quarterback than anyone else.

Tom Brady is easily in the list of the greatest athletes in the sport. He has been an inspiring figure to tens of millions. These quotes from this legend will not only help inspire you, but they can also provide you an insight into the stuff that makes him so great!

“You can’t go out and practice average on Wednesday, average on Thursday, okay on Friday and then expect to play well on Sunday.”

“A lot of times I find that people who are blessed with the most talent don’t ever develop that attitude, and the ones who aren’t blessed in that way are the most competitive and have the biggest heart.”

“I think sometimes in life the biggest challenges end up being the best things that happen in your life.”

“You wanna know which ring is my favorite? The next one.”

My personal favorite quote from Tom Brady is the following:

“You Push your body to the limits, but you have to train your body to deal with the limits.”

Jeremy Fouts Story Part 1

Sometimes in life there is the rare personality that slips between generational gaps and can’t quite be requisitioned to just one way of thinking. Often we pigeonhole individuals into groups such as millennials, Gen X’rs, or baby boomers, and some of us don’t know where we fit in at all. And again, then there are those that are the outliers, the outsiders, those which have an old soul and that seem fit in any where amongst any group of people. Jeremy Fouts is one such individual confident yet kind, generous yet sensible, unassuming and humble. For every high he has reached there has been a self-admitted low, for every low he has dug in until the climb became even more rewarding than the summit. His is a rag to riches story worth sharing. Why? Because he is still living it, he is still approaching each day with a passion to help others. His passion has been instilled in him from his youth and is still deeply seeded in who he is today.
Being brought up in small town Oklahoma Jeremy learned early on in life that if you wanted something bad enough you had to earn it. Like most kids that grew up in rural America life was good, but days were long and often filled with hard work. But those long days that end up defining the positive features of a country kid, helped to make the successes in life even more savory and meaningful when they eventual arrive.
A natural born athlete Jeremy took to the sporting fields with ease. He understood the hard work that he would have to devote into his interests if he wanted to experience the winning end of sports. On and off the field Jeremy was a natural born leader that led with love. For those that have had a chance to spend time with Jeremy it is immediately apparent that he loves without judgment and if you earn his trust you have a loyal friend that will always put your needs above his own.
Growing up in a household of boys with God fearing parents also helped Jeremy to sow deep roots of faith, knowing that there is more to life than just the mundane day to day activities. There is a deeper connection bigger than us all that unites us all. His work ethic and his drive eventually allowed him to attend college (with his lovely wife Candice Fouts) and earn his bachelors degree. Education has been just as important to him as hard work because of the opportunities and doors that it can help open for you. Being a deep believer in education has also helped him to understand that it is the best tool that we have to help raise each other up as humans.
Jeremy’s drive and determination eventually took him around the world helping to educate individuals on how to better their own space in this world. To be continued…

Exercise

As we all know life is full of stressors, from starting a new job, losing a job, getting married, moving, financial obligations, etc. etc. Don’t get me wrong, a little bit of stress can be okay and can even help us perform better. However, many of us tend to deal with an unhealthy level of stress. What many people don’t realize is how effective exercise can be in helping decrease our stress levels.  

What happens when we get stressed is our brain releases the natural-occurring chemical, cortisol. What “fights” the cortisol, if you will, are endorphins. Right now, you are probably wondering, “How does knowing this help me?” Well, it is because when we exercise endorphins are released into our brain, thus reducing stress levels, anxiety, tension, and even depression. If you have ever been stressed to the max and decided to go on a heart-pumping run, you probably know what I mean. 

Long-term effects of the primary stress hormone, cortisol, will eventually take a toll on your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, blood sugar, heart rate, heart, immune system, digestive system, and the list goes on. For centuries though, yogis and others have understood how proper breathing and physical activity can decrease our cortisol levels and create a calm for ourselves. 

So next time you’re stressed, instead of picking up a bad habit such as binge eating, binging on TV, sleeping too much or too little, or binge drinking, pick up your favorite physical activity and let your body do the work and recalibrate naturally! If you’re going to be stressed you might as well get fit!
