“Do what you can with what you have where you are.” –Theodore Roosevelt

Yesterday was National Iced Tea Day.

Why does that matter? Because it demonstrates what we sometimes have to do in order to move our dream forward or transform something old into new.

So the story goes, the first known use of iced tea occurred in 1904 when English tea plantation owner Richard Blechynden set up a booth to sell hot tea at the St. Louis World Fair.

It was a sizzler of a day, and fair visitors didn’t want anything hot. Rather, they needed something to quench their thirst…something cold.

Quickly shifting his approach, he dumped some of his hot tea into ice and served it cold. It was an immediate hit.

What if there were the ever-so-slightest shift in what you’re currently doing, offering or pursuing that could create a whole new world of possibilities?

Got resourcefulness?

“It’s not resources but resourcefulness that ultimately makes the difference.” –Tony Robbins
