Do You Want Coffee or The Cup?

A Father brought two cups of coffee to his two sons, one cup was the most beautiful cup you had ever seen. It was layered with gold accents and was given to the younger son. The other was a simple paper cup.

The older son protested and asked why he was given the paper cup and not the expensive cup being that he was the eldest.

The Father said, “It is normal for you to want only the best. But that is also the source of your unhappiness.”

“What you really wanted was Coffee, NOT the cups, but you still want for the best cups even though you had asked for coffee.

Your life is like coffee and jobs, money and status in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain your life.

Don’t let the cups drive you. Because at the end of the day, all we want is to enjoy the coffee.
