Are You In the Lemonade Business?

Ever hear the saying, "When life hands you lemons, make lemonade" or "I bought a used lemon"?

Lemons seem to carry a negative connotation.  Why?

When you dig deep into the whole lemon "issue", it's not the lemon that's the problem.  In fact, lemons have all kinds of health benefits, including:
* cures digestion problems
* serves as a tonic for the liver
* treats infections (due to high Vitamin C content)
* can stop nose bleeds
* helps break fevers (as a lemon balm)

No, it's not the lemon.  It's the lemon's sour taste combined with its short lifespan.  Put a lemon in a hot car and see how fast it goes moldy.  How can such a powerful health booster have such an inability to weather adverse circumstances?  

The goal is not to explore why lemons don't last but to find ways to recreate the positive aspects of lemons so longevity is no longer the issue.

Back to my original question: 
Are you in the lemonade business?

When life hands you lemons, those sour experiences that, when subjected to heat or pressure, go bad, what do you do about it?  Do you throw the lemon out?  Do you buy a new one?  Or do you find a way to get all the juice with none of the rind?  

Think about it: success comes to those who request, invest, and persist.  If you're always throwing away life experiences because they've gone "bad", how are you doing all three?  You aren't.  

Success is not a destination; it's a journey filled with daily commitments to be made or broken.
