I have been asked by several large corporate management teams what I do when life gives me lemons. I always tell them the same thing, “when life gives you lemons get motivated”. If you can’t get motivated after a something bad happens in your life, your going to lose most of the battles you have in your life.
Life’s Disappointments Can Also Leave a Sour Taste
Most of us form early ideas as to how we would like to see our lives develop. In many cases, this turns out to be little more than juvenile wishful thinking since only a few have the determination to stick with their ideals and complete the process of turning them into reality. When you try your hardest to accomplish the goal you are aiming to accomplish and fail, life has officially dealt you a lemon! So what do you do?
Pick Yourself Up and Get Back On The Horse
Overcoming a setback is rarely easy to do; it is all too easy to concentrate on excuses and claims that life has been unfair. It can be quite difficult to comply with metaphorical phrases like the one above. However, there is one thing that can help us to overcome such difficulties and it sounds so simple – after we have been dealt the lemon, we need to get ourselves motivated towards the goal of overcoming it.
