Some people talk about how important it is to be content with what you have.
And then others talk about how important it is to never be satisfied and always push yourself toward bigger goals.
But if you become content with what you have. You’ll stop growing and you won’t reach your potential. And if you never let yourself be satisfied and push yourself constantly then you’ll be miserable and underperform as you drain yourself.
The thing that works is to become content with a direction not a state of being. Learn to put yourself on a path of growth and then be satisfied that you’re living the life you want to live and experiencing the journey you want to experience.
Life isn’t about being content with what you have or always being unhappy with it. It’s about learning to be happy with the direction you’re going, knowing that you’ll make it better over time, and being dynamically at peace as you move forward through life.
