When life throws you Lemons, Make Lemonade!
Who said the road would be easy? There will be a lot of twist and turns along the way. If you give up now you will never see your reward. Many may assume that where I am today is where I have always been, no ma’am honey! I will be the first to tell you that I have had my fair share of lemons being thrown at me left and right. From insecurities, doubt, disconnections and overdrawn accounts, I have conquered it all. There have been plenty of days that I have felt like giving up and throwing in the towel. Let’s not even mention the number of times I have been rejected and denied opportunities. I was on the verge of giving up.
I came to realize that it was a test! A test that would determine if I was REALLY ready to be the leader I envisioned. Although no one truly likes the pressures of life and entrepreneurship, it is something we must experience in order to become strong and beautiful. Just as you put trust in other things, trust the process. With care and prayer you will be alright.
It is so important for us to absorb the good out of what we perceive as a negative situation. The idea of turning lemons into lemonade has a lot to do with your perspective. By changing the way you view things, you also change the way you respond. Instead of giving up, go harder. DO’ers do not quit. They persevere. Your current state is only temporary!
I challenge you today to push through whatever it is you may be facing in life. See it as the greatest lesson learned. I often tell people that what we go through is not always for us but for someone who needs to witness your tragedy to triumph. Slice up those lemons, add some water, and have a sip because the best is yet to come!
