Celebrate what you have—not what you do not haveLenz Entertainment Group
Contentment is realizing that You already have all you need to be happy. However, being content does not mean just staying at your current level.
By living a content life, you will still get better at what you do. But what is different is your motivation.
Your motivation is not to get more stuff (physiological) or reputation (esteem). Instead, your motivation is to realize your potential (self-actualization) and contribute (self-transcendence).
Because you want to realize your potential and contribute, you will get better at what you do. You will achieve more. But the motivation is different. Contentment gives you the space to realize your potential, give back and lead you to live a fulfilling life.
