wAteR vs Cup

The story begins when a group of student comes to see their lecture. The conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life. The lecture just smiled and went to kitchen to get an assortment of cups; some porcelain, some in plastic, some in glass, some plain looking and some looked rather expensive and exquisite. The lecturer offered his students the cups to get drinks for themselves. Then the lecture sees that his students leaving behind the plain and cheap cup.

Then, the lecture said, "If you noticed, all the nice looking, expensive cups were taken up, it is normal that you only want the best for yourselves. In other words, that is the source of your problems and stress. Actually, all you wanted was water, not the cup, but we unconsciously went for the better cups."

The moral of de story is, if Happiness is Water, then the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold or maintain Happiness in Life. If only concentrate on the cups, we won't have time to enjoy or taste the water in it. So as a student try to enjoy our life. Not only study to get the good result, but try to do something that can give you benefits and experiences. Do not complain about what happen in our life but try to face it to make it better.
