Hello! Welcome to the online home of Lemon Coaching. If your life feels like a Lemon you need us!
A colloquial dictionary meaning for Lemon is something feeble, unsatisfactory, or disappointing. The USA uses it to describe anything that doesn’t work or lets you down. The expression “WHEN LIFE THROWS LEMONS - MAKE LEMONADE!” seems to have originated from Julius Rosenwald the President of the Sears Company and was recorded by Dale Carnegie in 1948 in his book “How to Stop Worrying and Start Living”. Mr Rosenwald said that when a wise man is handed a ‘lemon’ he asks, “What lesson can I learn from this misfortune? How can I improve my situation? How can I turn this lemon into lemonade? The fool does the complete opposite and gives up. He says, “I’m beaten, its fate, I haven’t got a chance.” Then he proceeds to hate the world and wallow in self-pity.
I started Lemon Coaching in 2000 after some challenging life events found me sinking. I didn't want those events to represent my life and chose to study Life Coaching. Lemon Coaching sits successfully balanced with caring for my special needs son, running a household as a single parent, and coping with life’s inevitable ups and downs. I make lemonade out of the lemons life throws. My lemons teach me NOT beat me! As a result I have the courage, resilience, creativity, confidence, and determination that sees me through any challenge. Having compassion and forgiveness for myself and others means, I experience joy, laughter, and great happiness on a daily basis. I love life and have the faith to trust I will always give and receive the best life has to offer.
As a coach my definition is – GROWTH CATALYST and my passion is passing on the skills,tools & knowledge I used to change my past to the clients we work with.
