Love him or hate him. Tim Tebow is getting shit done.
I’m no fan-boy. And let’s be honest, he’s yet to play a full season as a starting quarterback in the NFL, but somehow, someway, in what is probably the ugliest, most unconventiaoal play for any quarterback in the past decade, this guy wins.
If you watched the Bronco’s most recent game against the Jets, as soon as Tim Tebow got the ball with a chance to lead his team to the winning touchdown (95 yards to go with only a few minutes left on the clock), there was no doubt in my mind he’d get it done.
Tim Tebow is an excellent metaphor and example of the attitude and effort each of us should put forward every single day.
You’re going to face criticism. You may not be the most talented at your craft. But as I’ve said a million times, results come down to hustle. If you give me someone who’s leaning on a God-given talent versus someone who is willing to do anything and everything to hustle and get results? I’ll take the latter every time.
This is the great unknown. If you watch Tebow play, yes, he’s finding ways to win, but he hasn’t yet developed into a player who trusts his teammates.
When the game is on the line, when it matters most, he tucks the ball and runs, he’s hesitatant to pass, he’s unsure of his teammates ability and will to win.
In order to develop. In order to grow. In order to succeed and be a champion, he’ll have to let go of the reins and trust the people around him.
The same is true for any of us. Whether you’re running a business and working to grow your potential, or trying to take the next step with your significant other, you can’t always hold on to the ball, sometimes, you’ve got to pass it to others.
It in’t always going to be pretty, but the results speak for themselves. Tim Tebow. I believe.
