During the episode of Let’s Go! Jim Gray inquired about the NFL player’s retirement plans after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were eliminated from the playoffs over the weekend. Brady thought back on the conclusion of his NFL career and discussed resilience with his co-host.

Tom Brady revealed that he told his three kids that failing in life is important because it teaches them how resilient they can be. Brady revealed to the co-host during his podcast appearance: “In life, you try a lot of things, and you fail. It’s part of life. We try things; we really push ourselves to try something new, and it doesn’t go the way we want,” he said.

The American football quarterback believes that relationships and learning are the two most important aspects of life, and he is grateful to have these great children to learn from and to be a proud father to them and be a good example and role model for them. He went on to explain his co-host,

“So what do you do? Do you care less? Do you care more? Or do you see it for what it was and try to learn from it, grow from it, and find the resilience we all want to teach our children?”

“Life isn’t going to be a smooth ride,” he added. “So we must build resilience.” Brady went on to explain why he wants his three children—daughter Vivian Lake, son Benjamin Rein, and son John Jack Edward—who he shares with his ex-wife, Bridget Moynahan, to learn resilience. “I don’t want it to go right for my kids all the time,” He said.

Tom Brady refused to answer questions about his future in his first podcast appearance since the end of his 23rd NFL season.
