Inspirational Stories of the Untold featuring “The Story of Rick Little”.

Inspirational Stories – The Story of Rick LittleMany inspirational stories surround Rick Little. Many inspirational stories have been created as a result of Rick Little’s efforts. When he was just 19, he wanted to create a special program in various high schools around the country that would help the students handle conflict, deal with peer pressure, deal with their emotions, and become the best that they each could be.

Little wrote proposals to many different foundations for assistance. He continuously got turned down. He ended up living in his vehicle and surviving on peanut butter and crackers. He continued to pursue his dreams, despite all the rejections for assistance.

“Never give up on your dream… Perseverance is all important. If you don’t have the desire and the belief in yourself to keep trying after you’ve been told you should quit, you’ll never make it.” – Tawni O’Dell

Finally, the Kellogg Foundation provided Rick Little with an amazing $130,000.00. He started on his dream, which is now called the Quest Program. Since that allowance, he has actually earned well over $100 million so that over 30,000 high schools could integrate the program for their students. Today, several million kids have been taught the important skills that he thought that they should learn.

Despite the rejections, the hard ships, and the challenges, Rick Little continued to pursue his dream. Today, he and his team are teaching kids to do the same – all while obtaining important skills needed to succeed in their endeavors. If you have a dream, pursue it. If you want it enough, you will endure. If you are unable to endure, perhaps that dream is not meant for your life – simply, pursue another.
