Put three pots of water over the fire. : 

Put three pots of water over the fire.

Slide 3: 

In the first pot, put some carrots.

Slide 4: 

In the second pot, put some eggs.

Slide 5: 

In the third pot, put some coffee beans that have been grounded into coffee powder.

Slide 6: 

Boil all three pots for 15 minutes. Take out what you put in.

Slide 7: 

The carrots went in hard. They are now soft. The eggs went in soft inside. Now they are hard inside.

Slide 8: 

But the water has the colour and the wonderful smell of coffee. The coffee powder has disappeared.

Slide 9: 

Now think about life. Life is not always easy. Life is not always comfortable. Sometimes life is very hard.

Slide 10: 

We work very hard but get few results. What happens when we face difficulties? Things don’t happen like we wish. People don’t treat us like we hope.

Slide 11: 

Now think about the pots. The boiling water is like the problems of life.

Slide 12: 

We can be like the carrots. We go in tough and strong. We come out soft and weak.

Slide 13: 

We get very tired. We lose hope. We give up. There is no more fighting spirit. Don’t be like the carrots!

Slide 14: 

We can be like the eggs. We start with a soft and sensitive heart. We end up very hard and unfeeling inside.

Slide 15: 

We hate others. We don’t like ourselves. We become hard-hearted. There is no warm feeling, only bitterness. Don’t be like the eggs!

Slide 16: 

We can be like the coffee beans. The water does not change the coffee powder. The coffee powder changes the water!

Slide 17: 

The water has become different because of the coffee powder. See it. Smell it. Drink it. The hotter the water, the better the taste.

Slide 18: 

We can be like the coffee beans. We make something good from the difficulties we face. We learn new things.

Slide 19: 

We have new knowledge, new skills, new abilities. We grow in experience.

Slide 20: 

We make the world around us better.

Slide 21: 

To succeed, we must try… and try again. We must believe in what we are doing. We must not give up. We must be patient. We must keep pushing.

Slide 22: 

Problems and difficulties give us the chance to become stronger… and better… and tougher.

Slide 23: 

What are we like when things do not go well? Are we like the carrot… or the egg… or the coffee bean?

Slide 24: 

Be like the coffee bean!
