Motivational Stories -Your reaction matters more than what happens to you-Once upon a time a daughter complained to her father that her life was miserable, and she was tired of fighting and struggling all the time. In her life, it seemed just as one problem was solved, another one soon followed. Her father, who was a chef, took her to the kitchen where he filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. After some time, the three jars began to boil .he put potatoes in one container, eggs in the second pot and ground coffee in the third pot. He then let them sit and boil, keeping himself mum. The daughter moaned and impatiently waited, wondering what his father was doing. After twenty minutes he turned off the burners He took the potatoes out of the pot and placed them in a bowl. He pulled the boiled eggs out and put them in a bowl then he ladled the coffee out and placed it in a cup. He asked, ‘My dear daughter, what do you see ?”Potatoes, eggs and coffee, she replied, “Look closer, and touch the potatoes ‘She did likewise and noted that they were soft. He then asked to take an egg and break it. It was a hard-boiled egg. Finally, he asked her to sip the coffee. Its rich aroma brought a smile to her face. She then asked her father, ‘What does this mean ?’ He explained that the potatoes, the eggs, and coffee beans had each faced the same adversities -the boiling water. The potato became hard and unrelenting, but in boiling water, it became soft. The egg was fragile but protected by its thin outer shell, then the inside of the egg became hard. However, the coffee beans were unique -they changed the water and created something new .’ Which are you ?’ He asked his daughter Listen carefully, When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond ?’Are you a potato .an egg or a coffee bean ?’.
