Raise your hand if you got a little Te-bow-itis over the last few months.

CNN  (Tim Tebow raises his hand)

Tim Tebow isn't a NFL quarterback.  Tim Tebow is a perfect role model.  Tim Tebow leads Broncos to win.  Tim Tebow is terrible in Broncos loss.  Tim Tebow is a playoff hero.  Vote for Ron Paul.  Tim Tebow has one of the worst playoff performances ever.  Tim Tebow gets asked to Phi Lamb formal dance (87,000 You Tube hits) by random chick via You Tube.  Tim Tebow turns down CBS offer to be an analyst for the AFC championship game this weekend.  Tim Tebow goes to Vegas - I bet you he is not doing Vegas like my boy Jade is this weekend.

I'm guessing Tim Tebow is a little embarrassed about all this attention. 

All this Tebow attention has been created by space filling time for the 200 hours of NFL related football content found weekly on your flat screen television.  The irony of all of this Tebow mania is he appears to be the same person from 3 years ago when he was leading the Florida Gators to a BCS college football championship. 

If we focus on anything about Tim Tebow after this season, why don't we focus on his consistency, boundary setting, and accountability....as a person.  He does not allow his mouth to write checks his ass can't cash.  He isn't riding this wave of Tebow-mania and banking every endorsement deal available.  In fact, he has reportedly turned down seven figure endorsement deals.  Saturday Night Live and CBS Sports called - and he said "no thank you." 

He is firm with his personal boundaries.

He is consistent on doing the best he can do. 

He is accountable to himself and his principles. 

Instead of the envy, jealousy, and confusion that Tebow mania has created - maybe we should all just take a moment and try to set our personal boundaries, be consistent, and be accountable to the best of our ability to ourselves.

This doesn't mean you have to be Tim Tebow, be mad at Tim Tebow, or try to act like Tim Tebow (I refuse to snip foreskin of Filipino kids on a Spring Break-boundaries). 

It does mean - do the right thing for yourself, followed by doing the next best thing in front of you. 

Enjoy the NFL AFC and NFC championships this weekend....without Tim Tebow.

Until Next Time,
