The Friday News weekly edition for August 1st 2014
I don’t know about any of you, but the summer is flying along so fast this year its almost a blur. One of the reasons why I like doing the Friday News is to help slow us all down and see what has been happening during the week. I hope you are enjoying it also. This has been a week of inspiration and great information from the members of Adlandpro and to all of you…Good show!

Starting this weeks Friday News, I want to start with some very awesome and inspiring quotes from the different members.

Is not as apt to get the dollars
as he who climbs a tree and HOLLERS!”

To end this Friday News is a very good short story with a lesson. This story was shared by Hafiz on his forum Moral, learning, fun(joke) stories!!!
The Story of the Potato, the Egg and the Coffee Bean
Once upon a time a daughter complained to her father that her life was miserable and that she didn’t know how she was going to make it. She was tired of fighting and struggling all the time. It seemed just as one problem was solved, another one soon followed.
Her father, a chef, took her to the kitchen. He filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Once the three pots began to boil, he placed potatoes in one pot, eggs in the second pot and ground coffee beans in the third pot. He then let them sit and boil, without saying a word to his daughter. The daughter, moaned and impatiently waited, wondering what he 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 eggs out and placed them in a bowl. He then ladled the coffee out and placed it in a cup.
Turning to her, he asked. “Daughter, what do you see?” “Potatoes, eggs and coffee,” she hastily replied.
“Look closer”, he said, “and touch the potatoes.” She did and noted that they were soft.
He then asked her to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg.
Finally, he asked her to sip the coffee. Its rich aroma brought a smile to her face.
“Father, what does this mean?” she asked.
He then explained that the potatoes, the eggs and coffee beans had each faced the same adversity-the boiling water. However, each one reacted differently. The potato went in strong, hard and unrelenting, but in boiling water, it became soft and weak. The egg was fragile, with the thin outer shell protecting its liquid interior until it was put in the boiling water. Then the inside of the egg became hard. However, the ground coffee beans were unique. After they were exposed to the boiling water, they changed the water and created something new.
“Which one are you?” he asked his daughter. “When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a potato, an egg, or a coffee bean?”
In life, things happen around us and things happen to us, but the only thing that truly matters is how you choose to react to it and what you make out of it. Life is all about leaning, adopting and converting all the struggles that we experience into something positive.
Well another week is over and a good week it has been! If you have found this news interesting, go ahead and pass it on to your friends.. they will then get an idea of what Adlandpro is all about 🙂
