How Do I Create GUI Text and Textures At The Origin?

When I create a new GUI Text or GUI Texture game object, they are created at arbitrary points in space. For example the GUI Text I just created is at location (6.780938, 6.286905, 8.711872).

When I run the game the text is centered in the middle of the screen.

I would like this to appear at location (0.5, 0.5, 0) So that I can easily adjust it’s position on screen like all of the tutorials showing a coordinate system of (0, 0) being the bottom left and (1, 1) being the top right.

How do I do this?
