When life gives you shit, make lemonade.
RORY SUTHERLAND had a nice essay on edge.org on turning sour lessons into “sweet lemons.”
When life gives you shit, turn something positive out of it.
Lose your job or get fired? Fuck yeah, I hated that job anyways.
Your partner leave you? He was a deadbeat anyways. Thank God I can find someone new, and more positive.
Someone steal my phone? Maybe I can go a month without a phone, and I can make an excuse not to respond to emails, because an enlightened thief stole it from me! Nice reminder to spend less time on my phone.
My parent die suddenly? God bless, thank god he won’t be suffering anymore, or bring pain onto others.
I lose all my money in the stock market? Maybe I can use having $0 in my bank account to respark the drive of hustle that I had when I was a broke college student.
The way to be invincible: always turn a negative into a positive.
