"Visionaries Don't Always Start on Top"
Have you heard about the Florida elementary student who wanted to celebrate "College Colors Day" with his class, but he didn't have a t-shirt to express his pride for his favorite school, University of Tennessee?
This brilliant child decided to create his own shirt and beamed with pride when he walked into the school to participate in this momentous day.
When he arrived, he was teased by his peers because his shirt didn't match up to what they believed was good enough because it was homemade. It deflated this young man and made him feel less-than.
Wanting to do something to cheer him up, his teacher took to Facebook to ask her friends to send the young man official U of T gear, but what happened next was amazing. Not only did her friends support her request, but the University of Tennessee sent him a box full of spirit items, created a t-shirt using his logo that will be sold by the University with all proceeds going to anti-bullying causes. To top it off, he received a full scholarship when he heads off to college.
The moral of this story is all about using what you have to get in the game. He didn't have the official shirt for the College Colors Day, but he made the effort to create one of his own. He didn't allow himself to become a victim of his circumstances.
Our vision and ideas are special gifts that are given to us because the Universe feels as if we are the ones to bring those things to life. Instead of focusing on the right timing, resources or people to make things happen, let's make moves to honor the creative solutions we are given each and every day.
Visionaries don't always start on top, but if they stay true to their gifts of creativity and faith, amazing things will happen.
