PostSubject: Hot Chocolate. Nice Story ... must read   Mon Sep 14, 2009 2:53 pm

A group of
graduates, well established in their careers, were talking
at a reunion and decided to go visit their old university
professor, now retired.

During their visit, the conversation turned to complaints
about stress in their work and lives.

Offering his guests hot chocolate, the professor went into
the kitchen and returned with a large pot of hot chocolate
and an assortment of cups - porcelain, glass, crystal, some
plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite - telling them
to help themselves to the hot chocolate.

When they all had
a cup of hot chocolate in hand, the professor said:
"Notice that all the nice looking, expensive cups were
taken, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is
normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is
the source of your problems and stress.

The cup that you're drinking from adds nothing to the
quality of the hot chocolate. In most cases it is just more
expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink.

What all of you really wanted was hot chocolate, not the
cup; but you consciously went for the best cups... And then
you began eyeing each other's cups.

Now consider this: Life is the hot chocolate; your job,
money and position in society are the cups.

They are just tools to hold and contain life.

The cup you have does not define, nor change the quality of
life you have.

Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to
enjoy the hot chocolate God has provided us. God makes the
hot chocolate, man chooses the cups. The happiest people
don't have the best of everything. They just make the
best of everything that they have.

Live simply.
Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. And enjoy your
hot chocolate.

Yes!!! Great idea to share this with my wife to make her understand that all those branded dress & handbag will not make any better looking...

So she can spend her $$$ on my golfing equipments.... Shocked

We are lucky that we can play golf ..... I always feel that i am lucky to play golf and meet the many friends i have made through this game. As someone here told me.. You wont be a single h'cap player like some here but take heart that you are lucky to be able to play this game ....
Hence, I have changed my mindset ... I wont be pissed off and angry if my game is bad .. there is always another game ...
