MENTAL TRAINING PROGRAM
CARROT OR TEA BAG Week 7
Take two boiling pots of water and into one drop a carrot, into the next drop a tea bag.
The carrot goes in straight and sturdy; it has been well raised. When it hits the heat and pressure of the boiling water, it becomes soft and pliable and will bend in any direction you choose to bend it. The tea bag is totally different from the carrot. When it hits the water it changes the water. By adding heat and pressure, the tea bag changes the environment into something much better.
