With the helpful knowledge about how his body works from the inside, Brady knows he is doing all he can to progress towards success.
Brady did fall into the trap ofjust doing what everyone else does and not taking preventative measures to plan for the future. He would stick his elbow into an ice bucket after training sessions because that’s what people did. “It’s systematic,” Brady says.” It will not, however, get you into the hall of fame. He now knows not to follow the crowd and focus on what makes him as successful as possible.
