When life gives you lemons, you have a couple of different options either make lemonade or suck on lemons. If you suck on lemons, then you might definitely take care of some old world illnesses. The better option is to make lemonade in where you convert the lemons with a little sugar and water. This is a short lived solution but it is a sweet use of the lemon. One other option is to plant the seeds to help grow more lemon trees, thereby ensuring that others will be able to use the lemons in the future. This act of using what you have is similar to not accepting status quo, but having a desire to do better in your life. You might be dealt a certain hand in life, but you don’t have to keep playing it. It is one thing to want to put your life in a better position, but consistent actions are required to implement your desires.
You may relate this transformation of the lemons to your life. The definition of insanity is continuing to do the same thing and expect different results. If you continue to accept life and complain about making changes,yet never doing anything, then your life will continue to be the same. The more you set goals and dream big the better your lemonade will taste once you gather the ingredients to make it. The right amount of sugar and lemons is dependent on how much you put in. Consistent effort is needed on a daily basis to help you achieve your goals.
The policy of only giving a new business opportunity a “try” will never work. The “try” normally last less than 30 days and most people quit and move on to the next “shiny object”. It is much better to select a business that you like and feel good about. Once you have a business, then the next step is to write your goals, commit to them and go after them using consistent and deliberate effort. The feeling of accomplishment is indescribable when you achieve the goals that you set for yourself.
Some people want to be a billionaire, millionaire, live with no money worries or just be the best teacher that they could become. Success is not always about the amount of money that we want in our bank account. Achieving success might be a professional, personal or even being the best dad that you can be. The definition of success is different from person to person which is synonmous with the level of tartness in your lemonade. The perfect tasting lemonade is different for each individual person. Your lemonade might be sweeter, than mine. It does not mean that your taste preference is better or worse than mine. The level of success(taste preference) varies from person to person. The key is to take what life give you and make it better for you. I hate the taste of just sucking on lemons for the rest of my life, so transform your lemons.
P.S. You have put off your goals and dreams for far to long. Don’t let procrastination the deadly enemy of success keep you from achieving them any longer. I wrote a blog post regarding procrastination a while back read about it here.
