On a snowy Monday, here is me writing an article to bring some summer feelings… this is more as a note to my self than an article suited for a blog post, (well, my friends, some of you know me as one who write about anything that I believe may benefit others),
In case you are mew here, welcome to our family of dedicated people who love to be genuine, and make a difference in life by sharing what we believe it’s helpful and some how beneficial to others.
I just received a Monday uplifting message from a friend who adopted me to be on his team because my upline team is not reliable nor I have been proud off… THANKS once again J.H.
The message he sent me, hit home, so I felt sharing the essence part, and same subject… and that is:
“Are you Guilty as anyone can be for not stopping by a child lemonade stand when you pass by one?
Did you ever look directly in the child eyes, did you ever thought of anything more that being a lemonade stand?
There is many more instances I can mention.. and I tell you.. I am guilty of them all.. I never stop at a lemonade stand and never even accepted an invitation from the child either.. I am really, really guilty of that.. and if I did not know, I sure learned this morning when I read my friend upline message.
Ho yes, I love to know all of you had a wonderful weekend (if was a weekend as it was here for me) filled with happy events and relaxation and group mediation as in my case.
Joyful, healthy and relaxed weekends as the one just passed, it’s tough to think of those worse days that our attitude was not the best, I know I been there and hope you can relate so you still follow what I have to say after this.
Yes, I am talking about those days when we tend to forget the great times and only remember the bad on.
We have all seen them dozens of times (in summer and just drove right passed. Today I challenge you to never do that again. I know you’ll always going to Stop from now on!!! Because that is exactly what life and business is – it is a lemonade stand.
As the child of the lemonade stand, we take time to prepare, we are so excited of what will happen and how many people will love the carefully prepared lemonade. We have the anxiety and excitement of the fun to come. We will have some people that stop and some people that will not stop and some that just avoid the stand all together (I am guilty in all of them, I know now .
We may not have been in the same situation of a child preparing the lemonade stand, or we not have been in the position of avoiding the stand all together (as I did many times) but at the end of the day, when we think of it, today, right now we are exactly as the child who prepared the lemonade stand.
We write an article, we create a product, we offer a service, what ever, we all do something in life and business and all what we do, say or thing, our attitude of success that decides if it was a hit or a home run.
I will always remember this simple lessons of a lemonade stand complete with Preparation, Fun, True Honest Work Ethic, Super Service and most of all POSITIVE ATTITUDE.
I mentioned before, I for one will never pass by or drive right past a lemonade stand ever again, are you?
Here is something that was written about this topic in a better way that I could write.. hope it will be beneficial to you…
THE LEMONADE STAND
by Myra Cohn Livingston
Myra Cohn Livingston was born on August 17, 1926 in Omaha,
Nebraska and wrote poetry for children’s.
Every summer under the shade we fix up a stand to sell lemonade.
A stack of cups, a pitcher of ice, a board sign to tell the price.
A dime for the big, A nickel for small. The nickel cup’s short.
The dime cup’s tall.
Plenty of sugar to make it sweet, and sometimes cookies for us to eat.
But when the sun moves into the shade it gets too hot to sell lemonade.
Nobody stops so we put things away and drink what’s left and start to play.
NOW HERE SOME QUOTES THAT I FOUND INTERESTING ON THE SAME SUBJECT.
