Showing Persistence Patriots Win Another Super Bowl

Two days ago The New England Patriots won there Fifth Super Bowl, in Super Bowl 51 from Houston Texas. It was there record Ninth Appearance in the Big Game. Seven of those coming in the Brady- Belichick Regime. With all Five wins coming during this time. Making Tom Brady and Bill Belichick the Winningest Quaterback and Coach of The Super Bowl and don’t forget Belichick was also an assistant on two Super Bowl winning Ny Giants teams. Like it or not the man might just be the greatest Head Coach in the history of the NFL. And his Quaterback Tom Brady might be the Greatest QB of all time.

They did it by staying persistent if you watched the game you saw that the Atlanta Falcons jumped out to a good size lead and I was rooting for them. If you follow me on twitter you would have seen that. They went out in front 21-0. and the Patriots managed to get a field Goal at the end of the first half to make it 21-3. I’m sure at this time you thought it was over, I sure did I was wondering how many more points the Falcons were going to score. Well I sat there in shock as they managed to score a touchdown to go up 28-3 early in the third quarter But the Patriots shut them oiut the rest of the way and  scored 31 points to win 34-28 final in The first ever overtime game in Super Bowl history. It was also the biggest comeback win ever in Super Bowl History. 

Look I don’t hate the Patriots, Tom Brady or even Bill Belichick like allot of people outside of New England do. I was rooting for the Falcons because I wanted to see a team that has never won the Super Bowl win it. Since my team The Dallas Cowboys were not in it. Hell I remember when The Patriots were loveable losers. Lets face it the Patriots are winners and people hate winners. The more successful you are the more haters you’ll have. What the Patriots did on Sunday should have taught us one thing Love them or Hate them they stuck to there guns stayed Persistent and cme away with the win even when it looked hopeless.

If you believe in something you should stick to it.  Don’t listen to the nay sayers if there criticizing you. It could mean that what ever your doing scares them and they wished they had thought of it. Now that being said don’t confuse criticism with someone who is actually trying to give you good advice. That comes from people more successful then You. But in the end you have the weigh the advice and take the criticism with a grain of salt. That’s not saying everything you do is going to be successful. You will have many failures. And each failure will get you closer to your success.

In closing if you are passionate about something don’t let the haters tell you its never going to work. That is a decision you and only You should make. And only after you give it your very best effort. And if someone who is successful offers you advice listen to them.

    Outstanding Post Scott.

    Yes, the game was amazing! No one thought the Patriots could come back from that, but they did. It’s like you said, they played “their game” and was persistent about it.

    Isn’t it strange how other’s success turns some folks into haters? I touched on that in my blog post today as well.

    Thanks for putting an interesting perspective on a much necessary topic.

      Hi Jennifer thank you for your comment. It’s funny I’m reading Grant Cardone’s Book Be Obsessed or Be Average. And I’m on Chapter 12 which is called Obsessed with Persistence.
