You know this old saying that it is best to make lemonade if you got a lemon. How often do we think over and over when something happens unexpectedly. Sometimes we freeze or blame circumstances, which are only circumstances, nothing more. Most importantly, our attitude to the situation which happened to us. I think reaction and action to what occurred to us differ between losers and achievers.
Sitting and complaining about bad things never helps anybody. It is just a waste of time and energy. Maybe we need to wait till our emotions slow down, but after it, we need to think over how to get from this situation.
Life delivers challenges
Sometimes experience provides difficulties for us as somebody would look from somewhere how we will behave. It is like school. You never know which ticket will be on the exam. In the famous book Greatest Discovery, Earl Nightingale wrote about one man, who bought a farm, where have been just sand and poisonous snakes. At first, he did not know what to do with it because no plants would survive on this open land. Anyway, Earl Nightingale decided, which made him famous and wealthy. He established a farm for snakes, sold their skin and meat, and had tourists from far away visit his place.
No time to give up
This farmer was squeezing lemons and making lemonade. If you got a lemon, you make the best of it. People who do not give up and see solutions in the worst situations are not extraordinary or superhuman beings. They just decided not to give up and were curious about how to change the case for their excellence.
The human brain has the most significant potential. Regarding Earl Nightingale, the mind is one thing that differentiates us from pigs. Still, now, computers cannot be at the same level as the human brain. Yes, they can calculate and make operations faster, but thinking creatively, is a personal priority.
