Society hates winners, they really do. Peyton Manning comes around, and he's overrated all of a sudden. He's called a choker and overhyped, even though he already has over 50,000 yards, and a Super Bowl ring.
Tom Brady's supposedly overrated too, and people accuse him of paying off referees.
In the 90s, the Bulls were the most hated team around. Six titles will do that.
Why do people hate winners so much? Simple. Most hate winners because they've never been one themselves. They've never had the fire and will to take it to the next level. They'd rather work a 40 hour job instead of taking that chance in life that winners end up taking.
And I'm not talking about WINNING, I'm talking WINNERS!
Winners don't hang with losers. An article in ESPN, before the Super Bowl, talked about how Peyton Manning doesn't hang with riff-raff. His friends are bankers, lawyers, doctors.....highly motivated individuals. He doesn't hang with the woe is me crowd.
Winners don't listen to naysayers. Danny DeVito had something like 72 auditions before getting a small speaking role. People said he was too short, and he wouldn't make it in the business. Arnold Schwarzenegger was told to change his last name and his accent.....people wouldn't accept him. Reginald VelJohnson(Carl from the Wonder Years) was living in his Mom's basement till he was 35, receiving the scorn of his family for not having a "real job".
The irony is funny though. People hate winners, and they supposedly love the underdog, but no matter where you find the underdog, it makes no money and it does no ratings. Look at any sport, any movie, any TV show, anything out there. The money is in the hate of the winner, not in the success of the underdog.
I just have one thing to say to these people. How about TRYING to be a winner yourself. How about TRY being a Peyton Manning or Tom Brady instead of hating them. That doesn't mean try being a QB, it just means try being the absolute best at what you do.
Wanna know what makes Tom Brady and Peyton Manning the best? It's not natural talent, or the successful sperm club(or cheating, like Brady haters will bring out). Both of those guys flat hate to lose. They are in the film rooms for hours, they are the first on the field and last off of it, they work harder in the weight room than most people do, and they give it their all in every single aspect.
Those two are just examples. I can bring out ten other names of winners, and the comparisons are the same. They just want it more than other people do, and they are willing to go the extra mile.
It's just jealousy. No reason for it, but it's jealousy.
Time to give that up folks. Time to be a winner yourselves, and that includes your attitude.
Because if not, you'll continue to hate, and that's one horrible way to live.
