Turning Lemonade Into Helicopters


This article is posted under Mindsetting.

Almost a year ago, I wrote a post telling How To Be Lucky in Life and Achieve Success.

Today, I’m sharing with you a video that compliments those points very well.

Below is a short clip of Stanford Technology Venture Program Executive Director, Tina Seelig who says that entrepreneurs should learn how to make their own luck.

She emphasizes that while hard work is imperative, it also takes optimism, an open mind, networking skills and interestingly – the ability to “turn lemons NOT JUST into lemonade… BUT helicopters” to become successful.

Watch the video below and see what she exactly meant by that.

Did it felt like there’s something more to this talk?

Actually there is because it’s just a clip from a one-hour lecture entitled, The Art of Teaching Entrepreneurship and Innovation. Follow the link to watch the whole video.

Don’t have an hour right now but you do have a few more minutes to spare?

Then just watch another fun and interesting clip by Tina Seelig from the same lecture at a previous post of mine entitled Make Money By Providing Value.
