|Underdog - from the andybarlowblog.com|
The word "Underdog" has been a celebrated theme since our Nation's birth. We are country that only exists due the fact that a scrappy band of rugged individualists, underdogs (not to mention a few paid and unpaid hands) wanted to break free from the much better funded and better organized British Crown.
When a virtual unknown jumps on to the stage against the world renown...and wins. The world takes notice.
The stories go from biblical times to the story of David and Goliath to more recently when several years back the Harvard women's basketball team became the first #16 seed in NCAA history to topple a #1 seed.
Whatever struggles you're going through right now. If you want to be the person in the number #1 position but you're somewhere near the end of the line, know that the Underdog that wins does not do it by fluke or chance or luck. They do it by determination, belief in themselves and fierce focus to achieve.
As you watch the NCAA tournament this week I'm sure you'll find a few underdog stories and if you're like me - I'll bet you'll be rooting for them just like I will. Who knows there might even be a #16 seed in the men's competition that does the unthinkable - beats a #1 seed today.
