From Lemons to Your Life as Cave Johnson

Crypto Ultimatum

 

“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! “

– Cave Johnson’s famous quote about overcoming difficulties in the Portal series. (source)

 

When I first came across this quote, it really made me think. I had always been taught that when you are faced with an adversity, to change it. And that is certainly true. However, this quote makes it sound as if you should also get down and wallow in your lemons, when in reality, that’s not the right approach. When you face something negative, use it to your advantage, and do something positive with it. The same goes for your own life.

Life has plenty of lemons, and some people choose to make lemonade rather than look for them. But there is a difference between having a lemon in your life and finding one that gives you an opportunity. It can be a very exciting process if you can take on the challenge of creating something new or better from life’s lemons.

Make lemonade and then sell it for a profit when life hands you lemons

The majority of businesses tend to be very conservative with their investments in new services and products. While a few businesses are able to get away with this by focusing on their core products and customer base, the vast majority of companies aren’t. If your product or service isn’t working, it is likely because you haven’t taken enough time to understand the needs of your target market and you haven’t been able to innovate to create new solutions that solve the problem your existing products and services are not providing. The most successful companies use the money they have wisely. They allocate capital to where it will have the greatest return.

When it comes to personal finance and success in life, we can never really predict the future. But we can take advantage of the opportunities that come our way. When they do, we can’t just sit around and wait for them to pass us by. We have to get busy doing something to make our lives better. If you want to build wealth, don’t just be passive about it. Do what you can to achieve your goals.

An Example…

What’s just talking about it without an example. Since it’s my blog, I figured I would give you an example about me. I am blogging here, also blogging over at some local ones in my native language. The first lemon came when I got into debt. I made lemonade by getting out of debt, but didn’t stop there. I expanded on my opportunity of being debt free and started a blog. Just blogging on the site is fine, but I wanted more. Because of this site, I have been afforded many other opportunities.

The way I see it, blogging is a great way to keep a finger in the community pie. If you’re not sharing what’s going on with your followers, then you might as well be standing alone. So, I decided to take a challenge and turned it into a new opportunity. With that new opportunity came more opportunities and I found myself on a path that has changed my life.

My writing habits have changed over the years. When I first started blogging I would write, write, write. It was fun and something that I wanted to do. But, I found it wasn’t something I really enjoyed doing. So I slowly started to focus on my writing and not so much my writing habits. But, when people would ask me technical questions about their blogs and they started getting more common, I realized that I still had a passion for helping other people with the same questions.

After seeing so many people complain about not being able to get their blogs to work correctly, I decided to put in the time and effort to help those who need it most. And that’s what I’m doing now, helping bloggers and online business owners make money by getting their sites running properly and effectively.

I started my blog to share ideas with others in my business. I wanted to be able to help others through the words I write. It’s not just about selling anything. I want to make sure what I have to say is useful.

I take my own website and grow it, and in doing so, I expand the opportunities for myself and others. I notice a need for other bloggers and others in the industry. I don’t stop there. I see that there is a need to offer other bloggers services, so I put my skills to work and created something new.

And Go Further!

Think about your own life. You’ve probably heard about someone who took advantage of an opportunity and ended up creating something great, while another person did nothing at all with the same. Dig into the concept. The ways you can handle opportunities. Think if you need to move on, or expand, or create more and more.
