We all face adversity in various levels and frequencies - it's our response that matters.
This story is adapted from a submission by Ritu Singhvi*
Three pots of water are boiling, one with Carrots, one with Eggs and the third with Coffee Beans. After twenty minutes these were the results:
The carrots were soft and weak
The eggs were hard
But the coffee beans changed the water to coffee!
When adversity knocks on your door, what will you be?
A Carrot, an Egg or a Coffee Bean?!
