Have you ever found yourself in a bad situation were life just throws you a whole basket full of rotten lemons and says “Here ya go!” And now your just stuck with a bunch of rotten lemons. So what do you do?
Don’t take it lying down!
In the words of Cave Johnson ” Alright, I’ve been thinking. When life gives you lemons, don’t make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back! Get MAD! I don’t want your damn lemons! What am I supposed to do with these?! Demand to see life’s manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am!? I’m the man who’s gonna burn your house down! With the lemons! I’m gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!!”
Well put Cave Johnson. When life deals you a shit hand in life, Don’t take it lying down. RISE UP! Confront your situation head on and tell whoever dealt you a piss hand to go choke to death on the lemons they so foolishly tried to give you. Get MAD! Because if your anything like me. when your angry you want revenge. And you are willing to go to any lengths to see that rage and need for revenge to be satisfied.
When your mad, your motivated. And when I get motivated there is nothing that can stand between me and my objective.
Find a solution
If getting angry and tackling your issue head on won’t solve your problem then there is probably another solution that you are not seeing. So slow down for a second and follow these steps
- Stop and thoroughly examine the situation
- Figure out the overall complexity of the problem
- Research and brainstorm all possible solutions
- Determine the best course of action
Doing this will grant you insights that may have been previously hidden to you. Regardless of the scale or magnitude of the issue. Because you are taking the issue and are chopping it up into little pieces, from there you will be able to look at these smaller pieces objectively and allow you to see exactly how one part can affect another.
By doing this and researching into solutions other people have done, you may find yourself doing something different that ends up being a more effective solution than what you previously may have thought.
Change your situation
I’ve been told by strangers all the time that there life is crappy and my life looks fantastic in comparison. And they will ask me to help them make their life better. Which I have no problem in doing, but the first thing I will always tell them is this. “If you don’t like your life, If you don’t like your situation. Then change it.”
We have all made bad decisions in life at one time or another and sometimes we don’t even realize that a mistake has been made until much later. That’s fine, but the important thing is in realizing that the mistake was made.
Once you realize that an error was made you have already completed half of the process of fixing the issue. But a lot of people just stop after that and immediately go to assign blame afterwards. What these people fail to realize is that It doesn’t matter who is at fault, what matters is what you do about it.
Personal accountability and responsibility are the two Biggest aspects in life that the younger generations simply aren’t being taught. And when they are forced to learn these lessons later on in life, they will usually sit and rail against the unfairness of it all and how unfair it all is.
Because they aren’t taught Personal responsibility early on in life they will usually fail later on as adults because they don’t truly know how to learn from their mistakes. And if history is any indicator, these people will be doomed to repeat their failures again and again, without ever knowing why they are failing. If you don’t learn, you can’t grow. And if you are unable to grow then you will be unable to succeed. It’s as plain and simple as that.
On the flip side if you Know what is wrong with your situation and understand how you have contributed to the problem then this next step will be super easy to accomplish. You simply need to find out what lead to the situation and understand what actions you could have done differently to change the outcome. Remember hindsight is 20/20 but if you’re not looking for it, you won’t see it.
