"Whenever you fall, pick something up."
When Life Gives You Lemons... Make Money!
You've probably heard the expression "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." In other words, turn a negative into a positive.
I'd rather turn it into money!
Let me explain...
I was invited to be a coach at Early to Rise's 5 Days in July Internet Business Building Conference in Miami this year. It was an incredible experience to help others realize their dream of building their own Internet businesses from scratch, and I was walking on air at the end of the week.
Well, those great feelings came to a sudden halt on my way home from Florida.
My plane had just departed from the gate, and we were heading out to the runway for takeoff. I sent a text message to my wife and children letting them know that I would see them in a few hours.
Just then, the pilot announced that during the pre-flight check an indicator light came on and we had to return to the gate so maintenance could find out what the problem was.
After sitting on the plane for an hour, we were told the problem could not be fixed quickly and we had to de-board.
The flight was eventually cancelled and rescheduled for the following day.
Life had just given me a big bag of lemons!
I had been away from home for a week, and my wife and children missed me. (My youngest cried every time I called and told them I wasn't coming home yet.)
I had checked my luggage, so I had no clean clothes, no toiletries, and no toothbrush. I couldn't even comb my hair!
I didn't have a charger for my phone because I had packed it. So when the battery died, I was unable to call or text anyone.
So... what would you do if faced with this situation?
Take the free hotel and meal vouchers from the airline and hit the hotel bar? Take a cab to the nearby casino and see if your luck changes? Watch TV in your room and do nothing?
I decided to make some money.
I fired up my laptop and managed to accomplish the following before that battery, too, died:
So instead of just sitting there being upset about my cancelled flight, I DECIDED to be as productive as possible.
I took advantage of the unexpected free time the airline had blessed me with, and did as work as I could.
So the next time life hands you lemons (and it will), forget the negatives and focus on the tasks that will make you money instead!

"I never attended a conference with this much great information."
"The ETR conference completely over-delivered. Every speaker, everything promised, was delivered and then some. The accessibility of speakers, the warmth of the staff -- I never attended a conference with this much great information. Made some great connections with people."
Today's Words That Work: Autodidact
An autodidact (aw-toh-DIE-dakt) -- from the Greek for "self-taught" -- is someone who has learned a subject without the benefit of a teacher or formal education.
Example (as used by Steve Coll in The New Yorker): "Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, had a tumultuous youth in Australia and grew into an autodidact with eclectic skills and a deep distrust of hierarchies and governments."
