What do you do when you buy a television and take it home just to realize it doesn’t work? You load up the TV in your car, grab the receipt, head back to the store and with great conviction announce to the clerk, “It doesn’t work! I want my money back!”
Well of course, that’s what we all do. Or we ask for an exchange, but we definitely don’t just accept it and do nothing.
So then, why, when life isn’t going so well, or you’re dealt a bad hand in life, do we not stand up and stand firm and say, “I’m not accepting this! I can do better than this!”
When life throws you lemons, throw them back, and here’s the receipt!
The next time you’re confronted with a difficult situation don’t just sulk and feel sorry for yourself. Instead, pretend you just spent your entire paycheck on a TV that didn’t work. I guarantee you, you’ll stand up for yourself, grab the receipt, and announce to the world “I’M NOT ACCEPTING THIS! I CAN DO BETTER THAN THIS!”
