A CARROT, AN EGGOR THECOFFEE BEAN : A CARROT, AN EGGOR THECOFFEE BEAN Slide 2: A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem was solved, a new one arose. Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to boil. : Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to boil. Slide 4:  In the first pot, she placed carrots. Slide 5:  In the second pot, she put some eggs. Slide 6:  In the third pot, she put some coffee beans that have been grounded into coffee powder. Slide 7:  In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners. She fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl. Slide 8: Turning to her daughter, she asked, “Tell me, what do you see?” “Carrots, eggs, and coffee,” she replied. Slide 9: Her mother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. The mother then asked the daughter to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard boiled egg. Slide 10: The daughter smiled as she tasted its rich aroma. Finally, the mother asked the daughter to sip the coffee. Slide 11: The daughter then asked, “What does it mean, mother?” Her mother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity .. boiling water . Each reacted differently. Slide 12: * The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting. However, after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak. * The egg had been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior, but after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became hardened. * The ground coffee beans were unique, however. After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water. Slide 13: “Which are you?” she asked her daughter. “When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?” Slide 14: Now think about life. Life is not always easy. Life is not always comfortable. Sometimes life is very hard. Slide 15: We work very hard but get few results. What happens when we face difficulties? Things don’t happen like we wish. People don’t treat us like we hope. Slide 16: Now think about the pots. The boiling water is like the problems of life. Slide 17: We can be like the carrots. We go in tough and strong. We come out soft and weak. Slide 18: We get very tired. We lose hope. We give up. There is no more fighting spirit. Don’t be like the carrots! Slide 19: We can be like the eggs. We start with a soft and sensitive heart. We end up very hard and unfeeling inside. Slide 20: We hate others. We don’t like ourselves. We become hard-hearted. There is no warm feeling, only bitterness. Don’t be like the eggs! Slide 21: We can be like the coffee beans. The water does not change the coffee powder. The coffee powder changes the water! Slide 22: The water has become different because of the coffee powder. See it. Smell it. Drink it. The hotter the water, the better the taste. Slide 23: We can be like the coffee beans. We make something good from the difficulties we face. We learn new things. Slide 24: We have new knowledge, new skills, new abilities. We grow in experience. Slide 25: We make the world around us better. Slide 26: To succeed, we must try… and try again. We must believe in what we are doing. We must not give up. We must be patient. We must keep pushing. Slide 27: Problems and difficulties give us the chance to become stronger… and better… and tougher. Slide 28: What are we like when things do not go well? Are we like the carrot… or the egg… or the coffee bean? Slide 29: Be like the coffee bean!
