At the beginning of a class, a teacher asked his students:
What is happening with a carrot when you put it in hot water?
After a while, it melts.
Ok. And what is happening with an egg when you put it in hot water?
After a while, he got harden.
Ok. And what is happening with a coffee bean when you put it in hot water?
After a while, it turns in into a coffee.
We face the same situation with people.
When we live in a bad environment (the hot water), we can be a carrot and we become melted. Or we can be an egg and become hardened. Or we can be a coffee bean and transform the environment into a coffee.
It is our decision to become weakened by the environment, hardened, or to change the environment on our own.
The complete story can be found in The Coffee Bean, by Jon Gordon and Damon West.
