Here's a cool way of looking at things...


Recommended Posts

A group of alumni, highly established in their careers

got together to visit their old university professor.

Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.Offering his guests coffee, the Professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups - china,porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive,some exquisite - and told them to help themselves to the coffee.


When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said, "If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken,leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it's only normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress. What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups and then were eyeing each other's cups."


"Now consider this: Life is the coffee, and the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, and do not change the quality of Life. Sometimes,by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee God has provided."


So, don't let the cups drive you.... enjoy the coffee instead.
