As he deals with "Obstacles" following Gisele's split, Tom Brady admits that his primary "Focus" is football
In a recent podcast episode, Tom Brady discussed the ups and downs he experienced in both his personal and professional lives last year.
In a recent podcast episode, Tom Brady, 45, acknowledged that after divorcing his wife of 13 years, Gisele Bundchen, last year, he experienced "gratification" while playing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
In an interview with Jim Gray for the Let's Go episode of their SiriusXM podcast that aired on January 2, the professional athlete discussed his challenges and how he has been overcoming them.
He assisted the Buccaneers in beating the Carolina Panthers to advance to the playoffs, and the show was released soon after.
Tom said during the episode that, "When you're a professional, that's what professional means." I believe that we are all dealing with something, ...
...that we are all dealing with something as people and professionals, and that we all want to arrive at work and give it our all.
Every day, you come in with the best attitude you can muster, he said.
Since their separation, they have shared parenting of their two children, son Benjamin Rein, 13, and daughter Vivian Lake, 10. You try to compartmentalize things and concentrate entirely on your job.
In addition to being there for his children, the impressive football player appeared to focus most of his energy on playing the game he excels at.
Even though he had almost given up on football, he decided to pick it back up 40 days after making his retirement announcement and hasn't looked back since.
Tom retracted his retirement, which caused some controversy from those who disagreed with him, but he hasn't let it get to him.
You know, I know people [say], "Tom, you should have retired," because he said on the podcast, but I believe our team is dealing with a lot of outside noise.
You should have done this and that, you know, and that's alright.
He added that people can have a wide range of emotions, opinions, and other things.
But I believe that when you make this commitment, have a group of people who do the same, and you see something succeed, there is always satisfaction.
