Be Like an Avocado

Be Like an Avocado

Avocados are one of the so-called super-foods and constitute a great addition to someone's diet, regardless of his/her dietary preferences. They even have a preventative effect against cancer (the avocados, that is), among other health benefits (interesting article on this topic).


However, this is not a buzz on avocados as a dietary option. An avocado, just like anything else in nature, can also be a symbol of something even more important. In this case, it is a role model of sorts in these turbulent times. Let me explain…


Avocado is tough at its core

Because of this, it is not something you’d mess with, even if you have a sharp knife at your disposal. If we were like an avocado, we’d have a strong core of moral values or principles, rendering us a force to be reckoned with, instead of some weakling, like those you find on some social media. This strong core can also be a set of convictions. The scientific rigor a science-oriented individual stems from such a core.


Avocado's external is much softer (particularly when it has matured)

This is equally important because it renders the avocado an attractive fruit to include in your diet. Also, the softer it is on the outside, the yummier it usually is. If we were to apply this to ourselves, we'd have something like the attractive qualities that make one someone you'd like to communicate with, even follow if that person is a leader. Things like amicability, kindness, and empathy are the avocado-like exterior we can opt for.


Avocado can benefit everyone in one way or another

An avocado is not something that only vegetarians would eat. Even more traditional dietary groups enjoy a good avocado once in a while. If we were like avocado in that respect, we'd be more amicable and relate-able as individuals. We'd be able to communicate effectively not only with people in our field but also with others who we'd normally not connect to due to a gap in our interests. Such a trait is essential in all sorts of leadership.


Avocado is a versatile food option

Avocado can be eaten raw, cooked, and even sliced on a toast, along with other (hopefully healthy) stuff. A quick look on the web can reveal a myriad of options for those wanting to include avocado in their diet, without resorting to the same recipe every time. If we were to imitate avocado in that regard, we'd be more versatile and willing to take risks. We'd step out of our comfort zone and find complementary individuals to collaborate with, providing even more value to those who require our services.


I don’t know about you but all this talk about avocados has made me hungry! Not just for avocado-based dishes, but in general. Jokes aside, we have a lot to learn even from humble things like avocados, since nature has a lot of innate wisdom in it. We just need to learn to access it and apply it in our lives, enriching them as well as enriching the lives of others. Cheers!

Zacharias, Hold the Avocado is a phrase I've oft repeated but n this case, Bring it on! And so it goes.

nutritional wisdom and more

In that case let me be an avocado

That's punny, albeit in an unintentional way! Yes, avocado is a versatile food option but not that versatile. Perhaps if the waiter was more avocado-like, they could have handled the situation better πŸ™‚

A while back, my wife and I visited a cafeteria we hadn’t frequented before. We wished to start with coffees and mine, being a flat white, was ordered without incident. My wife has more ornate tastes and occasionally enjoys a shot of espresso in a small glass with a scoop of ice cream on the side, commonly termed an affogato. Upon ordering the latter we were met with a profuse apology that the kitchen was closed and they were only serving coffees and cakes. We were somewhat confused until it dawned on us that the young and perhaps inexperienced person behind the counter, yes you guessed it, misheard our request for affogato as avocado. πŸ₯Ί The world’s first nutty and green espresso machine? πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

I don't like the taste and texture of avocado but eat them occasionally because they are supposedly good for health. Using avocados as a metaphor, and following symbolism in your post, I would say people are like avocados because we can't suit everyone's taste. :-)

Again dear Oswaldo Enrique Diaz Delgado I have something to review with my self. This is in your writing that Keys to knowledge: To succeed (Shared Achievements) we focus and treasure the set of purposes

Dear Oswaldo Enrique Diaz Delgado In this sense, a thought (Acting) in its oriented character comes to be in its own intention the due investigations that we make available to many, more exactly with and towards its oriented value This is what you say and I have something to ponder on.

Zacharias \ud83d\udc1d Voulgaris- I don't feel hungry because I am reading your post just after having my lunch. This is a good post and it strikes me because I am fond of analogies from nature. Soft from the outside and solid in the core is exactly in line with a post I wrote a month or two ago in which I discussed leaders with soft hearts and tough minds. Lovely post to share.

Be like an Avocado

I love avocados. Mmm guacamole--mouth-watering. I think I know where I'm going today--to the store to get some--and maybe some organic guacamole, too.

BTW, in this article I use avocados as a metaphor, in a tongue-in-cheek manner. Enjoy!
