Are you a Potato, an Egg or a Coffee Bean?

“Regardless of how safe you stay, how covered you are,
nothing ain’t saving you from life.
It’s gonna hit you tight.
Sometimes it’s something you brought on yourself
and other times it is just the roll of the dice.

Pain is destined,
you take those dark rides,
just letting them grow your insight.

But even in this chaos don’t  you stop.
Hey, remember, happiness is just another roll
to the side. ”


Things will go wrong, times will get tough, and it is in these tough times that your matter will be tested. Each of us is different and reacts differently to adversity. So do you know how you react to adverse situations ? What breaks you , what makes your stronger ? If your answer is No that’s ok, not many of us know this. But it’s amazing what having this knowledge could do to the way you face adversities. Once you understand yourself and understand your reactions, you also understand what is moldable further to the desired state and what is not. This helps you device stress coping strategies for yourself, these go a long way in helping you succeed in life. For what defines you is not the intensity of your fall, but the resilience with which you get up from that fall.


At least once in life, something will go terribly wrong, and oh by the way, it will be your fault (or at least seem to be), all the heads will turn to you.
This is your defining moment, hold yourself, hold the panic, hold that anger, hold the blames.
Accept the situation, remember- this as a rule, “shit happens to everyone at least once in their lifetime” – so gather yourself
and work to contain the damage, to fix what can be and minimise the impact.
Success isn’t never falling, it’s getting up from a fall and turning things around.


Take the quiz and find out how adversity impacts you and how you react to adversity.
