Is the criticism really about football?

 In Culture, Leadership, Personal Growth

So much hype has surrounded Tim Tebow over the past several weeks–well really, I mean, when hasn’t there been talk surrounding Tebow?

But from the negative all the way to the positive, Tim Tebow keeps raising the bar–doing better, setting higher standards, and giving God all the glory.

“One of the great lessons you learn in football is courage to keep fighting. When you get knocked down, are you gonna get back up?” – Tim Tebow

I think I’ve learned one of the best kept secrets around: Praise in public. Criticize in private. It goes back to our elementary school days…if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all. Criticizing others not only relinquishes your leadership, but it also diminishes your credibility.
The real question that has begun to bubble to the surface though is why do people criticize Tebow so much? His stats are thoroughly backing up his athletic ability. So why does the media continuously communicate this negative bent towards Tim Tebow? The USA Today flat-out conquered the answer to this question. Check out their amazing article, “Anti-Tebow bias isn’t about football.”
At the end of the day, Tim Tebow wins football games. End of story. But far beyond touchdowns & scoreboard victories, he is winning BIG TIME in things that really matter…and that’s what it’s truly all about. (For more information on the Tim Tebow Foundation, click here.)
