The Canaries took a deserving lead at Carrow Road in the 33rd minute after Wes Hoolahan netted, but Tottenham upped their game in the second 45 and earned a share of the spoils when Gareth Bale netted 11 minutes from time with a fine solo effort.
Although he admitted his side were far from at their best early on, Villas-Boas believed they did well to end the game with a point to take back to White Hart Lane.
"It was a difficult game," he said on the club's official website. "Norwich put in a really good first half performance and our second half performance was very good as well.
"At halftime the players recognised that they wanted to change their attitude and they really made the difference in the second half.
"It was an extremely good second half - the power, the ambition and playing attacking football in difficult circumstances."
While the Portuguese did lament his side's inability to go on and grab a winner, he believed they showed promising signs ahead of this weekend's game against West Brom.
"After we made it 1-1, we had chances to make it 2-1 and it's a pity that didn't happen," Villas-Boas added.
"Hopefully the second half will be a good example of what we want to do at West Brom."
Tottenham are currently fourth in the league, 17 points behind leaders Manchester United.
