Be content...Be happy...

When a group of working adults visited their University lecturer, they started complaining about stress in work and life.After listening to all these things, the Lecturer served them with water in a different assortment of cups - porcelain, plastic, glass and some rather expensive/exquisite ones. After they picked up one for each of them, the Lecturer observed that cheap / plastic cups are left out.He said: "Your problems and stress are due to your thirst for the best things in the world for yourselves. Even though you needed only water, not the cup, you had gone for the better cups unconsciously.If you consider Life as water, then the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold/maintain Life, but the quality of Life does not change. If we only concentrate on the cup, we won't have time to enjoy/taste the water in it."

Be content...Be happy...

Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of CANCER. From world over, he received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed: "Why does GOD have to select you for such a bad disease"? To this Arthur Ashe replied: The world over -- 5 crore children start playing tennis, 50 lakh learn to play tennis, 5 lakh learn professional tennis, 50,000 come to the circuit, 5000 reach the grand slam, 50 reach Wimbeldon, 4 to semi final, 2 to the finals, When I was holding a cup I never asked GOD "Why me?". And today in pain I should not be asking GOD "Why me?" Happiness keeps u Sweet, Trials keep u Strong, Sorrow keeps u Human, Failure Keeps u Humble, Success keeps u Glowing, But only God Keeps u Going.....
