How did the Patriots WIN?

Tom Brady orchestrates the greatest Super Bowl comeback in history

Many wonder how in the world did the Patriots win last night’s game? What did Tom Brady say to bring his team together for one of the best Super Bowl comebacks in history?

In a post-game interview, Brady said that he asked teammates to “trust the process” and to “do your job”.  He focused his team, built up their confidence and went on the field to “do his job.”  And he did it well!  We call that SUCCESS!

In fact, we saw a lot of John Wooden’s Success characteristics displayed throughout the night:

  • Focus
  • Preparation
  • Confidence
  • Persistence
  • Team work

Lessons learned from the Patriots Super Bowl Win

  • Don’t ever give up, even when you think there will be a bad outcome.
  • Believe in yourself and your team even when others do not.
  • Be confident and build up your teammates. A team is only as strong as its weakest player.
  • Trust your process.

Pyramid of Success: Friendship and Loyalty

Building Blocks to Success: Friendship and Loyalty

pyramidThe next two building blocks in our Pyramid of Success go hand-in-hand:  friendship and loyalty. But why is friendship and loyalty important to achieving success in your life?

We asked a few of our Baudry Therapy/ BRIO clients what friendship means to them and this is what they had to say:

Applying the Characteristics of Friendship and Loyalty to Achieve Success

Over the many years that John Wooden served as UCLA Basketball coach, he determined that successful leaders possessed and instilled in team mates two important characteristics of friendship: respect and comaraderie. Demonstrating a spirit of goodwill (camaraderie) between your teammates and showing respect for each individual helps build long-lasting friendships and formidable organizations.

Wooden said, “Think of how much you’ll give when asked to do so by someone you respect and with whom you share camaraderie. You’ll give plenty  – everything you’ve got. Those under your leadership will do the same if you show them this part of yourself.”

Loyalty to yourself and to your friends is essential for establishing healthy relationships and strong teams. “Be loyal to your standards, your system, your values. Do not betray yourself or those you lead,” said Wooden.

You don’t have to be a leader or part of a sports team to apply the characteristics of friendship and loyalty to your life. Teams come in many forms: marriage, physical therapist/patient, corporate work teams, etc.  Establishing relationships built on the characteristics of friendship and loyalty will help you achieve success on whatever team you are on!
