What Do You Choose to Be?

Imagine "adversity" is represented by a pot of boiling water.

If you were to drop into the water, what would you be? A carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?

A carrot becomes soft in boiling water, and loses most of what makes it good to the water....

An egg becomes hard, with the center being difficult to reach.

But a coffee bean... ah, the coffee bean. In hot water, a coffee bean creates something new and wonderful...

So - when facing adversity, what are you? A carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?
