Enjoy the coffee

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Rahim
Alhamdulillah

I just want to share a good story that I get it from my friends.

A group of Computer Engineers, 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, some ordinary looking, some expensive, some exquisite.

He told them to help themselves to hot coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in their hands, the professor said:
"If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain
and cheap looking 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 best cups and worse, you were 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. " 

So the moral of this story is :don't let the cups drive you, enjoy the coffee instead.
