Carrots, Eggs or Coffee – What Are You?

posted by The MEGA Coach

A wonderful metaphor:

A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her.
She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling.  It seemed as one problem was solved, a new one arose.

Her mother took her to the kitchen.  She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire.  
Soon the pots came to boil.  In the first she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the last she placed ground coffee beans.  She let them sit and boil, without saying a word.


In about twenty minutes, she turned off the burners. She fished out the carrots and placed them in a bowl.   She pulled out the eggs and placed them in a bowl. Then she ladled out the coffee and placed it in a bowl.  Turning to her daughter, she asked, “Tell me what you see.”

“Carrots, eggs, and coffee,” she replied.

Her mother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they were soft. 
The mother then asked the daughter to take an egg and break it.  After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg. 

Finally, the mother asked the daughter to sip the coffee.  The daughter smiled as she tasted its richness and savored its aroma.  The daughter then asked, “What does it mean, mother?”


Her mother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity — boiling water.  Each reacted differently.

The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting.  However, after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak.

The egg had been fragile.  Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior, but after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became hardened.

The ground coffee beans were unique, however.  After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water.

“Which are you?” she asked her daughter.  “When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond?  Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?”


Think of this: Which am I?  Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength?

Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the heat?  Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup, a financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and stiff?  Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and hardened heart?

Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually changes the hot water, the very circumstance that brings the pain.  When the water gets hot, it releases the fragrance and flavor.  If you are like the bean, when things are at their worst; you become even better and change the situation around you.


When the hour is the darkest and trials are their greatest, do you elevate yourself to another level?

How do you handle adversity?  Are you a carrot, an egg, or a coffee bean?

The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of things that come their way.

Have an awesome day and know that someone is thinking about you!

You Can Do It Now!

posted by The MEGA Coach

Your consciousness and vision immediately starts the process of creation.  With every thought, belief, word and deed, you are moving in that direction.

Continue to focus your thoughts, feelings, energy, words and actions in the direction of what you want to create.  Feel how you would feel.  See what it would look.  Use your imagination and fully associate yourself in the experience.


Keep the faith and your vision focused and consistent.  Even in difficult situations or economic times, opportunities are always present.  All things are possible, there is GOLD DUST in the air.

Whether you want to improve your health, break an addiction or negative behavior pattern, create a better relationship, business or financial goal, you can do it.

Stay positive and associate with positive people who support you unconditionally.  Use your energy wisely and do not share your dreams or innermost desires with negative people who do not support your truth.


There is a natural flow to all of life, nature and the universe.
A flower will blossom when it is ready.
A child will walk at the right time.

Love is fulfilled at the perfect moment.
God comes through just when we need him most.

Remember a time when you felt you were in the flow or in the zone.
You were not thinking or trying to make something happen.
You were just being there, in the moment.


The good you are seeking is also seeking you.
Stay open, positive and expect miracles!

From the I Ching or Book of Changes by Brian Browne Walker:


Devotion to truth enables a revolution.

What enables this transformation is your conscious and vigorous adherence to correct thought and behavior.  No revolution in outer things is possible without a prior revolution in one’s inner way of being.  Whatever change you aspire to in your affairs must be preceded by a change in heart, an active deepening and strengthening of your resolve to meet every event with equanimity, detachment and innocent goodwill.  When this spiritual poise is achieved within, magnificent things are possible without.


The revolutions of others are enabled also when we refine the fire of goodness and truth inside ourselves.  Sincere commitment to higher things travels outward in powerful waves from the superior person, and all those around are affected by this.  Indisputably, to lead one’s inner self to truth and peace is to lead the outer world to truth and peace.  A beneficial revolution is assured to one who takes this path now.

May you discover your path to your most beneficial revolution!

Keep Looking Up, It’s Where Miracles Come From!

posted by The MEGA Coach

A wise man suggested to me, Sometimes God puts you on your back so you can look up.”

These are challenging days for many people.  These are the toughest financial times since the Great Depression for most of the world.  Many people are finding themselves being forced to look up because they are on their backs.


The challenges may be spiritual, mental, emotional, physical or financial.  They may concern your health, your family and personal relationships.  They may relate to your work or career.

No one on planet earth gets a free ride without trials and tribulations.  We all come here to learn important lessons and to grow.  Maybe our highest growth is about finding God in our lives and in each other.

One thing for certain, it is the challenges and problems that reveal a person’s true character.  It is easy to be kind and generous in good times, when everything is going your way.  But it is even more important to follow proper principles when you are on your back, fighting away the tears, the darkness and pain and struggles that are trying to engulf you.  Can you still find a smile or a kind word or deed for others at your toughest times?  If so, then your true essence and light is triumphant.


Life is precious and it goes by so quickly.  It is easy to get caught up in the small stuff, in the distractions of daily life.  But be clear there is always a higher power and greater cause then just survival.

It is the love and kindness that truly touches our souls and makes a difference in our lives.  It is the love and kindness that we take with us when we leave this life.  It is the love and kindness that lights our way and transcends the biggest challenges.

Know that a great and Higher Power, an infinite intelligence is here to help you.  No matter what the challenge, there is always love and hope.  You may be flat on your back, but there is always a way to love, peace and freedom.  You have to want it sincerely enough.  You have to believe.


I am so thankful to my family, friends and all of the people who share their kindness, compassion and grace with me.  Many of them do not even realize the gift they are giving to me and to others.  They just do it.  They contribute to my life and empower me to find the highest expression that I am.  My sweet wife, continues to shine her love on me every day and for this alone I am blessed forever.

Take the time now to acknowledge and feel all of your blessings.  Acknowledge the people that shine their light on you.  Most of all, acknowledge your true source, the most Magnificent Power in the Universe who created you in His image.


We have so much to be thankful for.
