Part 2: Tom Brady, Legendary NFL QB—Back Up Your Goals with Disciplined Action
Play • 58 min

Listen to the second part of our conversation with Tom Brady, quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

If you haven’t heard the first part yet, find it on the podcast feed – you’re going to want to start there. 

In the second half of our conversation, we talk about Tom’s upbringing, which is where his incredible discipline really starts. 

Tom also talks in depth about the specific mentality shifts that helped him break through the ranks in college – and this was despite being a pretty dispensable sixth round pick in the draft. 

Oh, and apologies to Atlanta fans, but yes, he talks about what was going through his head in that epic Super Bowl game against the Falcons when he and the Patriots were down 28-3 and came back to win it all. 

In every story, in every answer, Tom is teaching us a huge leadership lesson: if we want to lead well, we have to back up our goals with disciplined action. It’s not enough to just set a goal or want to succeed. We’ve got to show up and make the choices that will actually result in hitting those goals. 

That’s the kind of walk-the-walk leadership that people actually follow. 

You’ll also learn:

  • Tom’s advice to parents for how to talk to their kids
  • The inspiring question Tom asks when things don’t go right
  • The key advice Tom got that helped him move up the ranks even when opportunities were scarce 
  • The #1 ingredient your team needs to navigate day-to-day conflicts as they arise
  • The mentality you need to muster up when you’re down (and what Tom used in the epic Super Bowl comeback against the Atlanta Falcons)
  • The time Tom got locked in the stadium at Notre Dame and what he had to do to escape
