Recognize the Greatness in Others

Recognize the Greatness in Others

Wilma Rudolph said, " Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion. The potential for greatness lives within each of us." 

At Truwear we see your ability to achieve and your desire for success, and we want to promote you in the best way possible. We want to uplift and help you in your journey towards greatness by taking one little thing off your plate. Your wardrobe shouldn't ever be a hinderance, it should only elevate your potential. Like a supportive cast, it should only make you shine brighter. 

Have you heard the true story of how Thomas Edison's mother recognized and encouraged his potential at a young age?

One day the young Thomas Edison came home and handed a paper to his mother from his school. He told her, “My teacher gave this paper to me and told me to give it only to you.”

His mother’s eyes were tearful as she read the letter out loud to her son. “ Your son is a genius. This school is too small for him and doesn’t have good teachers for training him. Please teach him yourself.”

After years, Edison’s mother died and he was renowned as one of the greatest inventors of the century. One day he was going through his old family things. Suddenly, he noticed a folded paper in the corner of a drawer. He took it and opened it up.

On the paper was written: “Your son is addled. We won’t let him come to school any more.”

Thomas Edison cried for hours and then he wrote in his diary: “Thomas Alva Edison was an addled child that, by a hero mother, became the genius of the century.”

Now, to the point of this story. Don't let the judgements of others hold you back. Thomas Edison's mother saw the potential in her brilliant son, and rather than place the weight of a misguided rebuke firmly on her son's shoulders and allow those comments to label him for the rest of his life, she nurtured his genius and taught him in a way that allowed him to thrive and achieve. What would the world look like had that young mother accepted the harsh judgements of Albert's former school teachers?

At Truwear, we want to help support everyone in their struggles to realize their potential and recognize the greatness in all. By providing clothing that can endure the harsh realities of the world, while remaining comfortable and stylishly fashionable, we hope to remove one small obstacle from your course, so you can go forward in whatever quest you feel called to.
