In one of his first interviews since his Deflategate suspension was lifted, Tom Brady talked about his love of this “pretty cool book.” The book is “The Four Agreements.”
Among the mantras espoused in the book are Be Impeccable With Your Word and Don’t Take Anything Personally. That’s something that Brady mentioned in his interview with WEEI’s Dennis & Callahan, the Patriots QB said:
Because I don’t think a lot of people know personally who I am. They may know what they think I may be, or what they see on the TV screen. But my own personal thoughts, my interactions I have with the people closest to me — my family, my friends, so forth — those people know me best. So for people who may think they know or have snippets of who I am, look, you can attack that person.
I think that’s just part of being a public figure. Since going to a pretty high profile college 20 years ago, you get held to a different standard, and if you don’t like it, then you choose to do something else. But if that’s what you’re going to choose you’ve got to be open to the things that come along with it and not complain about when things don’t go your way, because like I’ve said, I’ve had so many things that have gone my way.
He mentions that he first read the book “Nine years ago,” so if he means 2006 Brady is talking about the years the Patriots were dumped in the AFC Championship game against the Colts.
