Changed by the Water
It is said that the same boiling water that hardens the egg, softens the potato. That it’s not about what life surrounds you with, but what you are made of that counts.
I couldn’t agree more.
But, I would take it a step further. Why be changed by the environment when you could be the one who changes the surroundings? What if, instead of being changed, we shined so bright that we changed our surroundings?
What if, instead of a potato or an egg, we chose to be a coffee bean?
Be the Bean
Coffee beans take that same boiling water and turn it into something magical and energetic. While the environment in which we live may be undoubtedly harsh, we can choose to be the catalyst that influences those around us to change for the better.
The good news is, you really can do it in any environment. It just means that your positivity, dedication, discipline, energy, and love must be strong enough to overpower anything in the environment that requires change.
Do you have what it takes? Are you strong enough? If you don’t feel like you are, drink some more coffee and remind yourself to be the bean.
Until next week, train hard, eat well, and live excellent!
