FOOD 4 THOUGHT


 

It is important to take a step back and reflect once in a while.  Enjoy this quote and see if you can find a way to relate it to your life.

 

 

“A diamond is merely a lump of coal that did well under pressure.”  -Unknown

 

 

 

You may feel like a lump of coal, but under the right kind of pressure you might turn into something as amazing as a diamond.  While it may be true that no amount of pressure can really turn coal into diamonds, it is true that coal and diamonds are both, at their bases, different forms of carbon.  Superman may have been reaching a bit when this quote was coined, but the idea behind it has some basis of truth.  Sometimes the only difference between your efforts resulting in coal or your efforts resulting in diamonds is the form in which pressure is applied.  So, the next time you’re working on a project, ask yourself what kind of results you want to yield? Coals or diamonds?
