A group of alumni, highly established in their
careers, got together to visit their old
professor. The conversation soon turned into
complaints about stress in work and in life.
Offering his guests coffee, the professor went
the kitchen and returned with a large pot of
coffee and an assortment of cups - porcelain,
plastic, glass, crystal, some plain-looking,
expensive, some exquisite - telling them to
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 up, leaving behind the plain
cheap ones. While it is 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 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."
