What I Have Learned From Tim Tebow
My father always says, “Whether you can or you can’t, you have to do it, so do it!” the premise behind that thinking is that if you don’t dwell on thinking that something can’t be done, you will spend time thinking on how to get it done. I see a lot of that in Tim Tebow. He is hardly accurate throwing the ball and people question his ability to compete in the NFL. He runs a lot for a quarterback, but he’s not very fast. Despite these glaring shortcomings, he keeps winning. But how?
I have been looking through Denver Broncos highlights and I watched the last couple games. Here is what I have learned:
- He doesn’t give up – He is a firm believer of “It’s not over until it’s over,” “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again,” and countless other cliches that coaches tell their players.
- He has his team believing they can win (even with him at quarterback) and people tend to do more when they know their objective can be reached.
- He stays out of trouble (on and off the field) – He doesn’t do drugs, drink, or hang out at the mall or the library. On the field, he doesn’t fumble, throw the ball to the bad guys, or do stupid things that hurt the team.
This is what I have learned:
- I gave up once, but I took back down and am preparing for the pitfalls I expect in the 2012 campaign. I’m not going to win by doing things the traditional way. This is why my campaign is unconventional – I am campaigning to my strengths.
- While I am not sure how many people think I can win, I do know many Americans think I am a better candidate than either Obama or any of the Republican candidates.
- I stay out of trouble (on and off the campaign trail) – I don’t take campaign money from big business (or from anybody else as is evident by the lack of a “PayPal” button on this website.) And I only patronize legitimate nudie bars recognized by the law.
I wish Tim Tebow luck for the rest of this season as well as in his career. I have already learned much from him and look forward to learning more.
