Embrace The Lemon

No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new Heaven to the human spirit. Helen Keller 

Is your glass half full or half empty? How do you respond to a horrible, awful, terrible day? What do you do with the sour lemons of your life—those events that aren’t fair, the personal failures, untimely deaths, when you see the scale suddenly going in the wrong direction? 

Learning how to make lemonade out of the lemons that inevitably show up in your life is the secret to joyful living. It doesn’t mean that you’ll be happy everyday, sipping away on a sugary refreshment, no! It means gradually squeezing out those sour lemons, adding some water and sugar to even out the bitterness, and overtime, creating something you can enjoy and share.

Affirmation: I know how to make lemonade.

Coaching questions: What are the lemons in your life? How do you cope with them? What’s one thing you can do to turn your pessimism into optimism so you too can discover the secret of the stars?
