A review of The Coffee Bean: A Simple Lesson to Create Positive Change
While browsing the local bookstore for business books to help me learn how to maintain Child Life Coffee’s momentum, I spotted something interesting. It was a tiny book with big letters on the cover reading “The Coffee Bean” and a single coffee bean image. Naturally, it caught my attention, so I picked it up to take a closer look. It wasn't at all what I was looking for, but after reading the back cover and skimming a few pages, I ended up purchasing it for myself and took it home to read. It took me about twenty minutes to finish, but the content really was inspirational. I enjoyed the quick read, especially the transformational lesson that it depicts. I wanted to share this book with you, especially with all the dads out there, because it gave me a new perspective that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
About the Book
From bestselling author Jon Gordon and rising star Damon West comes The Coffee Bean: an illustrated fable that teaches readers how to transform their environment, overcome challenges, and create positive change.
Life is often difficult. It can be harsh, stressful, and feel like a pot of boiling hot water. The environments we find ourselves in can change, weaken, or harden us, and test who we truly are. We can be like the carrot that weakens in the pot or like the egg that hardens. Or, we can be like the coffee bean and discover the power inside us to transform our environment.
The Coffee Bean is an inspiring tale that follows Abe, a young man filled with stress and fear as he faces challenges and pressure at school and home. One day after class, his teacher shares with him the life-changing lesson of the coffee bean, and this powerful message changes the way he thinks, acts, and sees the world. Abe discovers that instead of letting his environment change him for the worse, he can transform any environment he is in for the better. Equipped with this transformational truth, Abe embarks on an inspirational journey to live his life like the coffee bean. Wherever his life takes him, from school, to the military, to the business world, Abe demonstrates how this simple lesson can unleash the unstoppable power within you.
A delightful, quick read, The Coffee Bean is purposely written and designed for readers of all ages so that everyone can benefit from this transformational lesson. This is a book and message that, when read and shared, has the power to change your life and the world around you. You just have to decide: are you a carrot, egg, or coffee bean?
