How to Change Your Life One Mindset Shift at a Time

Every day, you’re choosing to live one of two lives: the Lemon Life or the Lemonade Life.

  • The Lemon Life is about settling for something less than your full potential. The Lemon Life is accepting your life as it is—the status quo as a permanent state.
  • The Lemonade Life is about leading life on your terms, with purpose and possibility. When you lead a life with purpose and possibility, you can proactively overcome any circumstances.

Will you choose to make life happen, or will you let life happen to you? Will you choose to change your life?

Will you live the Lemon Life or the Lemonade Life? The answer to that question is based on your ability to do five things.

Change your mindset, change your Life

Five simple changes will empower you to escape the Lemon Life and start leading the Lemonade Life.

You can think of these changes as five internal light switches. We all have these five switches and when activated, they are the secret to maximize potential, fuel success, and lead a happier life.

Flipping on these five switches will change your outlook and perspective, make you a better decision maker, and give you the power and freedom to control your life.

So, what are the five switches? The five switches are a P-R-I-S-M, the lens through which Lemonade Lifers, people like Warren Buffett, view the world:

P = Perspective

R = Risk

I = Independence

S = Self-Awareness

M = Motion

When flipped together, these five switches will create purpose and possibility in your life.

  • When you switch on perspective, you change your opportunities. Your perspective sets the tone for, and shapes what’s possible in, your life.
  • When you switch on risk, you change your decision-making. Understand the rewards of risk to make better decisions.
  • When you switch on independence, you change your freedom. Independence means rejecting common wisdom and daring to stand alone, even if you’re wrong.
  • When you switch on self-awareness, you change your self-understanding. Master yourself to master your life.
  • When you switch on motion, you change your circumstances. You can achieve success with the abilities and tools you already have, so long as you use them to enact change.

It’s your choice to change, experiment, and create

When you understand what it means to be in control of your life, it’s an awesome power and responsibility. It’s your pathway to greatness.

You can choose to change, and when you flip these five switches, you’ll see your life through a new PRISM, while leading your Lemonade Life.

The bold truth is that no matter what happened before, today is your day. Today is the day you take full control of your life.

Yesterday was the last day you said, “I can’t.” Today is the first day you say, “I will.”

You live in one of the most amazing times in history.

It may not feel like the best time. It may not feel like the perfect time.

But right now is the greatest time because everyone has a shot to fulfill their destiny. This is your time.

What do you think?

There are a lot of people sharing their ideas about self-help and personal development these days. But what I love most about Zack Friedman's unique take on the subject matter is his focus on internal changes versus external changes. We don't have to change our external circumstances to become more successful. We only need to overcome the mental and internal hurdles keeping us from living a life that allows us to make lemonade out of lemons. The rest will play itself out. Do you think you will be able to stop controlling your environment and start evolving your mindset this year?
