A group of young people, highly established in their careers, got together
 to visit their old university lecturer. Conversation soon turned into complaints
about stress in work and life. Offering his guests coffee, the lecturer 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 lecturer 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."

Don't let the cups drive you... enjoy the coffee instead.
