When life gives you lemons, grab the tequila and salt

Life is full of surprises, some good and some not so good. Sometimes, things don’t turn out the way we want them to, and it can be easy to feel discouraged or defeated. Don’t feel sorry for yourself for too long. The truth is, things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.

It’s all about perspective. Instead of focusing on what’s not working or what you can’t control, focus on what you can do with what you have. Look for opportunities in every situation, even the challenging ones.

Take a moment to think about some of the most successful people in history. Many of them faced obstacles and setbacks, but they didn’t let those setbacks define them. Instead, they made the best of the way things turned out.

  1. Abraham Lincoln: Despite suffering numerous personal and professional setbacks, including the loss of his mother at a young age, multiple failed businesses, and numerous unsuccessful political campaigns, Lincoln persevered and became one of America’s greatest presidents.
  2. Helen Keller: Born deaf and blind, Helen Keller refused to let her disabilities hold her back. She became a celebrated author, activist, and lecturer, inspiring millions with her message of hope and perseverance.

So, with wonderful examples of that kind of perseverance what can you do to make the best of the way things turn out? Start by focusing on the things you can control. Take action and create opportunities for yourself, even when it seems like the odds are against you. Surround yourself with positivity and people who support and encourage you. And most importantly, don’t give up.

I really do believe that things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out. Life is full of surprises, but it’s up to us to choose how we respond to them. So, the next time things don’t go according to plan, remember that you have the power to make the best of the situation. Stay positive, stay persistent, and keep moving forward.

How wonderfully inspiring to think your best days have not come yet! Hearty handshakes from me to you.
