Story Carrots, Eggs, and Coffee

A child complained to his father about his life and ask why life is so hard for him. He does not know how to deal with and almost gave up. He was tired to fight. It seems every time one problem is completed, new problems arise.

His father, a chef, took her to the kitchen. He filled 3 pots with water and put it on the fire.

After the water in these pots boil. He put carrots in the pan first, the egg in the second pot, and he put the coffee powder in the pan last. He let it boil without saying a word. The child is silent and waited impatiently, wondering what he was doing his father. After 20 minutes, the father put the fire out.

He set aside the carrots and put them in a bowl, picked up eggs and put them in another bowl, and pour the coffee in another bowl.

Then he asked his son, "What do you see, son?" "Carrots, eggs, and coffee," replied the boy. Her father took her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. He did so and noted that they were soft. His father then asked him to take egg and break it. After throwing his skin, he found a boiled egg is hardened.

Finally, her father asked her to sip the coffee. She smiled as she tasted its rich aroma. After that, the boy asked, "What does it mean, Father?"

He explained that each had faced the same adversity, boiling water, but each reacted differently.

The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting. But after boiled, carrots become soft and tender. Egg had been fragile. Thin shell protecting its liquid interior. But after the boiling water, its inside became hardened. The ground coffee beans were unique. After being in the boiling water, they changed the water.

"Where are you including?," Said his father. "When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg or coffee? "What about you? Are you the carrot that seems hard, but with pain and adversity do you wilt and become soft and lose your strength. "

"Are you the egg, which starts with a malleable heart? With a dynamic spirit, but after a death, heartbreak, divorce or dismissal have you become hardened and stiff. From the outside looks the same, but are you bitter and tough with a heart and soul of rigid?. "

"Or are you like the coffee bean? The bean changes the hot water, something that causes pain, to achieve maximum flavor at a temperature of 100 degrees Celsius. When the water reaches the temperature of the hottest, the coffee was delicious. "

"If you like the coffee bean, when things are at their worst, you will be better and make things better around you."

"There's a giant in every person and there is nothing that can stop it except a huge giant's holding his own"
