Even those whom one feels should have reached the level of contentment may not be there because it is a personal decision to be satisfied with what you have acquired or achieved in life

“To know when you have enough is to be rich beyond measure” Lao Tzu

“Discontentment makes rich people poor while contentment makes poor people rich”

“Contentment gives a crown, where fortune hath denied it” John Ford

When you are personally contented with your situation, you allow yourself the ability to enjoy and be at peace with yourself

You grow in confidence and are not easily swayed by things that could create an imbalance in your life

“When we cannot find contentment in ourselves, it is useless to seek it elsewhere” Francois La Rochefoucauld

Contented people are less likely to commit crime of any sort because of the strength of character that comes with being content.

The great thing about contentment is that it’s entirely up to you as an individual, it’s your decision to be or not

To begin, you have to view life as a gift not an entitlement, this would help in creating inward acceptance. It’s not always easy to be this way, it takes a conscious effort and training of the mind. Mentorship and good books, help a lot in this aspect

“The key to contentment is to consider. Consider who you are and be satisfied with that. Consider what you have and be satisfied with that. Consider what God’s doing and be satisfied with that. You will be amazed at how much more comfortable you’ll feel with yourself. Finally, consider this: Of contentment cannot be found within yourself, you’ll never find it” Luci Swindoll
