Life Is coffee(different view for life)


A group of old boys, highly established in their careers, got together
To visit their old secondary school principal. Conversation soon turned Into complaints about stress in work and life.

Offering his guests coffee, the principal went to the kitchen and Returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups -porcelain, plastic, glass, some plain-looking and some expensive and exquisite, telling them to help themselves to hot coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the principal said:

"If you noticed, all the nice-looking, expensive cups were taken up, Leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is but 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 better cups and are eyeing each other's cups."

"Now, if Life is coffee, then the jobs, money and position in society Are the cups.

They are just tools to hold and contain Life, but the quality of Life doesn't change."

"Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee in it."

How true isn't it ?
