“I don’t care about three years ago… I don’t care about two years ago. I don’t care about last year. The only things I care about is this week.” – Tom Brady

Tom Brady, the 5 Time Superbowl Champion, lives, breathes and plays with an urgent sense of hard work. He maintains an immaculate diet, practices as much as possible, and has shattered records throughout his career. Champions do not dwell on the past – it is a powerful mindset that is a prerequisite for success and one that we promote here at LNE Consulting.

“You know, I never looked down the road and said, ‘Hey look, one day, the Hall of Fame.’ It’s always about playing each and every game 100 percent and I thank my teammates for getting me into the Hall because football is a team sport, not an individual sport” – Jerry Rice

The NFL Hall of Famer holds multiple records in the NFL while being selected for the Pro Bowl 13 times and named All-Pro 12 times. Rice’s 20 years in the NFL were impressive ones; however one of the reasons that he was so successful was because he was attentive and in the moment. It is not intelligent to dwell on the past, but it also important to remember to stay in the moment and not worry about the future. Always give 100% in the moment and the future will be taken care of.

 “Success isn’t owned. It’s leased – and rent is due every day.” – JJ Watt

JJ Watt, who is a defensive weapon for the Houston Texans, is a powerhouse player who has set NFL records and played through injuries to prove doubters wrong. He understands that success is not a one-time deal that is over and done with – that’s why you need to stay consistent and work hard every single day. We operate on that belief daily here at LNE Consulting.
