Making more than Lemonade with the stuff that is thrown at you


You must have heard that "bad things" happened to good people. This is part of the truth.The whole truth is that your response to whatever happens to you is the ultimate determinant of the outcome you get. You are not a victim, even if you have been told so and you feel so. You have the power to choose the right response. Do it and walk in the new opportunity that is always hiding behind the seemingly "bad situation." This is not a denial of the existence of evil, but a bold move to rob evil of its power and control over your life.


If a seed had the ability to speak, it will scream when it is deprived of the comfort, warmth and security in the house, when it is being taken out of the house for planting. When the seed is being taken out of the house, if it could, it will be kicking and screaming for nobody wants to die. The seed will be justified if it complained about the terrible conditions that are associated with being buried in the dark under heavy soil for a couple of days and left to rot and die. But the seed knows better not to scream and kick. It knows that the comfort and warmth of the self is extremely limiting. It is safe and comfortable, but it is preventing the tree in the seed from coming out.


The lemons are used to make lemonade to quench their taste as the labor under these difficult circumstances. Those who get anything done are those who have also learned to use the trials and difficulties that come their way.” us, make us uncomfortable, stretch us, and push the seed in us to grow.e seed will be justified if it complained about the terrible conditions that are associated with being buried in the dark under heavy soil for a couple of days and left to rot and die.

The seed understands that getting out of its comfort zone is the only way for its full potential to be realized.Yes! It is dark, uncomfortable, and extremely dangerous outside, but these are the condition for innovation and breakthroughs.


The seed understands that there are two sides to every coin and both sides make the coin complete. Life and death make a whole.

The seed MUST die to live. It must give up its present life for a bigger and better life. It is in the dark and lonely place that this transformation takes

place.


As Jesus of Nazareth said, “I can guarantee this truth: A single grain of wheat doesn't produce anything unless it is planted in the ground and dies. If it dies, it will produce a lot of grain.


This partially explains why life sometimes throws “stones, lemons, bricks, sticks and other things at us. These life changing events come suddenly and without warning and unexpectedly. These circumstances are meant to “kill” us, make us uncomfortable, stretch us, and push the seed in us to grow.


The only difference between you and those who make it is that they make a choice to use whatever is thrown at them as building blocks.

They make a foundation out of the stones and rocks.


The bricks are used to build the walls of the house and the sticks for the roof.


The lemons are used to make lemonade to quench their taste as the labor under these difficult circumstances. Those who get anything done are those who have also learned to use the trails and difficulties that come their way.
