“When life gives your lemons MADE LEMONADE!”
let’s face it, sometimes life gives us lemons! 🍋 🍋
Whether it is in our personal or business life, unexpected shitty things happen.
Sometimes we see them coming, and sometimes we don’t and it is shocking.
Sometimes we cause them to happen, most often we don’t.
Sometimes they’re easy, sometimes they are just down right hard!
BUT we have a choice on how we respond to “the lemons” 🍋 🍋!
In the business management book “Who Moved My Cheese? An A-Mazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work and in Your Life” Spencer Johnson tells a great story about two mice Sniff and Scurry and two little people Hem and Haw.
They wake up one morning and their cheese is gone. The story unfolds with how each one deals with the fact the cheese is gone and ends with the following words of wisdom:
🧀 Change Happens – They keep moving the cheese
🧀 Anticipate Change – Get ready for the cheese to move
🧀 Monitor Change – Smell the cheese often so you know when it is getting old
🧀 Adapt to Change Quickly – The quicker you let go of old cheese the sooner you can enjoy new cheese.
🧀 Change – Move with the cheese
🧀Enjoy Change! – Savour the adventure and enjoy the taste of new cheese
🧀Be ready to Change Quickly and Enjoy it Again and Again.
And Move with the 🧀 and enjoy it!
I first ready this book in the late 90’s and it has stayed with through major changes in my career, life and business.
We don’t control change but we control how we react to it.
So, when life gives you lemons 🍋 🍋 MADE LEMONADE! 🍹
That’s what I’m choosing to do!
