When you are happy, and you know it – you are contended. At times, contentment is everything one needs in life. However, satisfaction doesn’t come easily to most, the chasm between desire and achievement is usually the culprit.
On the flip side, contentment may result in complacence. Kids must be hungry for success and contended with materialistic things. A sense of comfort in terms of acquiring knowledge does slow down learning and, in turn growth. ‘To get’ and ‘to achieve’ are two independent yardsticks. It is good to be easy to be contented with what you get, nonetheless when it comes to achieving – contentment shouldn’t come easy. Bar should really be set high.
Contentment is the only real wealth – Alfred Nobel
