Have Life given you lemons?
Did grow up in a poor neighborhood?
Are you surrounded by toxic people?
Have you been scammed – many times?
Have you got bad business partners?
Have made bad investment after bad investment.
And to top it all off, have you lost someone that meant a lot to you…
…without even properly saying goodbye.
“When Life Gives You Lemons…”
People say you must make do with your circumstances.
They say, “that’s life”. Or “c’est la vie”.
But I don’t agree…
It’s true that while you’re getting lemons, you may as well turn those difficulties into opportunities…
(There’s nothing wrong with that.)
But if you look deeper, there’s something else wrong with this attitude on a fundamental level.
When you say “that’s life”. Or “c’est la vie”.
You’re accepting defeat…
You’re saying to your subconscious, “well what can I do. This is supposed to happen to me! It’s life!”
And for the longest time, this was what I told myself too.
I was a victim…
I blamed everyone and everything around me for why I was who I was.
I blamed it all on the lemons in my life…
I said “c’est la vie.”
But when eventually I had nowhere to turn. And I was backed against the wall.
I had to face myself. And I had to accept that the only person that was to blame for my life: was me.
Only after I took extreme ownership for my life did I start seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
I know that you’re most likely going through similar things yourself.
Life is pummeling you with lemons. And no matter how hard you try – it just doesn’t seem to be getting better.
It feels like there is nowhere to hide and protect yourself. And that dream life you so desperately want just seems to grow farther and farther away…
Well, I want you to know something.
You’re not alone.
What you’re experiencing is normal. All successful people have to go through that.
Steve Jobs went through it, Elon Musk went through it, I went through it, and almost every self-made successful person I can think of went through it.
The difference between those that make it and those that don’t is simple.
Those that make it – refuse to make lemonade with their lemons.
They refuse to settle and just accept life for “what it is”.
And they refuse to give up on their dreams – even when things seems hopeless.
Keep going dear. And never let the world tell you who you can or cannot be.
