If It Aint Dead, Don't Bury It

Did you know, that Black Ivory Coffee is a brand of coffee produced by the Black Ivory Coffee Company Ltd in northern Thailand from Arabica coffee beans consumed by elephants and collected from their waste? The taste of Black Ivory coffee is influenced by elephants‘ digestive enzymes, which breaks down the coffee’s protein.

Did you know that beans can be collected from animal poop then washed, dried, roasted and sold as the most expensive coffee in the world, selling for as much as $500 per?In fact, the world’s priciest coffee is hand picked from Elephant dung. In addition to that, the dung of one Elephant can provide up to 115 sheets of paper per day.That’s because Elephants digest less than half of their food and their waste is mostly fiber. So basically, an elephant’s poop is worth a lot.Who knew that poop could pay? My point is one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. It’s literally a matter of perspective.We give up too soon. This is a fact.If something doesn’t work on our timeline, we give up. It’s dead we say, not meant to be. We forget that the things that are truly worth something take time.We forget that by changing our perspective on something we’ve been working on or staring at for a long period of time, we can make it work for us in a different way.Instead, we try something for a little bit, we give up and then we jump into something else. What usually happens at the end of our journey is that we’ve left behind a trail of unfinished business. We never dug deep.We buried those dreams too soon because they looked dead.Anyone who knows plants well will tell you that changing the position or placement of a plant or how often you water it could bring a dying plant back to life. Wilted leaves spring back up. Discolored leaves turn green again.We are not separate from nature. Nothing is wasted in nature which means no life experience is ever wasted either. They’re all there to support the big picture for you and me.Life has given you gifts that have been tailored specifically for you and your journey.Use every single one of those gifts. I’m not saying that every single thing you do will turn into a multi million dollar idea or make you rich and famous (if that’s what you want).What I’m saying is, don’t be so quick to throw away or bury certain gifts because they’re not unfolding fast enough for you.Every gift is a platform and being on the right platform at the right time will get you on the right train.If there’s someone in your life who could use this message, feel free to forward it. Have a beautiful week!
