The Underdog

People know this as someone who’s underestimated or overlooked. This applies to sports, life, business, etc. There’s always going to be someone who isn’t big for the standards we apply.  For example, in the 2011 NBA Draft, Isaiah Thomas was the 60th and last pick. He’s 5’9, but has a game that is too great to ignore. In the NBA, if you’re below 6 feet, it’s really hard to get through people or even stay in the league.  But Isaiah Thomas is different and special. He was doubted through his basketball career that he won’t make it, and he proved everyone wrong. 2- time All-Star, can’t debate that. Heart over Height always!

 

Tom Brady was picked in the 6th round by The New England Patriots in the 2000 NFL Draft. The rest is history, because you know the story.  5-time Super Bowl Champion,  12- time Pro Bowler, 2-time MVP, 4th in career touchdowns. The man is a living legend.  He’s still motivated by becoming a 6th rounder , it fuels his fire and it’s great to see. He didn’t let someone ‘s opinion or critique deprive him of becoming great. He doesn’t have to prove anything to nobody anymore, but it’s great he still uses his draft selection to keeping pushing for excellence. Many people in his position would forget about it and move on but not Tom Brady because he’s one the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game of football. 

 

we love a good underdog story, and it’s great when that particular person overcomes the odds and achieves his or her goal. Never let anyone tell you can’t do something,  because nothing is impossible.

  2. I have to show some appreciation to the writer just for bailing me out of this type of predicament. Right after looking throughout the internet and seeing strategies which were not pleasant, I believed my life was done. Being alive minus the strategies to the issues you’ve fixed by way of this site is a critical case, as well as those that could have negatively affected my entire career if I had not encountered your web site. Your own expertise and kindness in dealing with a lot of stuff was tremendous. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I had not encountered such a thing like this. I am able to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot very much for your high quality and results-oriented guide. I will not be reluctant to suggest your site to anyone who desires recommendations about this topic.

  3. I agree with you that an underdog is a great story. It is such a great story both the Isaiah Thomas one and the Tom Brady one. And definitely being an underdog can fuel a fire if you allow it to motivate you in the right way.
