Whilst driving my children to school this morning, I heard one radio talk show host say that if Tim Tebow “came out” and proclaimed that he’s gay, he’d have 28 NFL teams trying to sign him right now.
Got a few chuckles there, but seriouslly, I doubt that would happen.
Tebow is regularly blasted for professing his beliefs. And I’m of the opinion that the only reason the Jets signed him in the first place was to ridicule him and hopefully destroy him.
As an athlete I never publicly displayed my beliefs, period. On anything. But I don’t believe my way was ‘the way’ for all athletes.
If Tebow wants to kneel and pray, I don’t care so long as he works hard and does what he can to help his team win. If he wants to say the name ‘Jesus’ in every interview, I also don’t care.
As for proclaiming yourself gay – I also don’t care.
It’s none of my business. At the same time I wouldn’t reward or condemn the Christian or the gay athlete, for saying he’s one or the other.
Apparently a group of football fans in Jacksonville, Florida, have petitioned the President to intervene and force the owner of the Jaguars to sign Tebow. I’m not betting on that petition making a difference either.
One thing I will bet on, though, is Tebow turning all the bashing of him into a positive. I bet he emerges from this experience stronger than ever before.
Because the man has ENERGY. Far more energy than most people. And ENERGY is what makes the difference when you’re confronted with obstacles, critics and your own failures on the way to success.
In my seminar later this month, you’ll discover how to bring the ENERGY of success into each and every day.
Right now we have 12 seats remaining – so if you want to attend – I suggest you jump on this one NOW.
