Motivational Learnings from the Coffee Beans

Put three pots of water over the fire
In the first pot,
put some Carrots
In the third pot,
put some Coffee Beans
The Carrots went in hard
They are now soft
The Eggs went in soft inside
Now they are hard inside
The Coffee Beans has disappeared
But the water has the colour and the wonderful smell of Coffee
Now think about Life
Life is not always easy
Life is not always comfortable
Things don’t happen like we wish
People don’t treat us like we hope
We work very hard but get few results
What happens when we face Difficulties?
Now think about the pots
The boiling water is like the Problems of Life
We can be like the Carrots
We go in Tough and Strong
We come out Soft and Weak
We get Tired
We lose Hope
We Give up
There is No More Fighting Spirit
So, Don’t be like the Carrots!
We can be like the Eggs
We Start with a
Soft and Sensitive Heart
We End up
Very Hard Feeling inside
We Hate others
We don’t Like ourselves
We become
There is No Warm-Feeling,
only Bitterness
So, Don’t be like the Eggs!
We can be like the Coffee Beans
The water does not change the Coffee Beans
The Coffee Beans changes the water!
The water has become different because of the Coffee Beans
See it
Smell it
Drink it
The Hotter the Water,
the Better the Taste
We can be like the Coffee Beans
We make something Good from the Difficulties we face
We Learn new things
We have New Knowledge, Skills and Abilities
We Grow in Experience
We make the World around us Better
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.
Problems and Difficulties give us the chance to become Stronger… and Better… and Tougher
What are we like when things
do not go well?
Are we like the Carrot…
or the Egg…
or the Coffee Bean?
Be like the Coffee Bean!
