Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady - Success comes from a team effort

In case anyone was still wondering, there is an enormous cost and behind the scenes effort that goes into being the very best in virtually any profession.  

Things even get more challenging if you are at the top of a sport that is extremely popular.  Not only must an athlete in this position be physically and mentally prepared to compete at the highest level, there are also numerous media and other outside obligations that come with the job and especially so in the case of quarterback Tom Brady. To quote an often used phrase, there is a cost to everything in life and nothing comes for free.

For Tom Brady to be the superstar quarterback and family man that we all see on TV, requires the absolute support and dedication of his wife, Gisele Bundchen to the family and home. Having discovered, in my doctoral research the critical need for top athletes to have significant behind the scenes support, I have found it absolutely amazing that Tom Brady has managed to continue performing at peak levels for so many years and still maintain his family.

As a fan of sport and in particular as a researcher and observer of human performance, I will say that if you are impressed by the absolute skill of Tom Brady, you must be equally impressed with the patience and behind the scenes efforts of his wife Gisele.
