I was chatting with Shiv today, and he mentioned the word “Content”. We were talking about a guy both of us know, who is not content. He is happy,not content.
Are you content. Is anyone of us content?
lets go back to the basics. What makes us content? What makes a life fulfilled? What is it that can make a person feel satisfied.
For me, its different. For you its different. But there are a few things that are commong among us. That is love, sense-of-accomplishment, realization-of-dreams and achieving success.
Please do correct me if i am wrong, but i believe, these are a few things that drive your happiness and satisfaction. I feel content when i reach a goal i have set for myself. But at the same time, i feel challenged to go set my bars higher and reach antother level. This realization of goals, and a inner drive to reach next goal, is what satisties me. If i am on the track, i feel content. If i am not, i feel discontent.
Someone asked me why do you want to fix goals and run behind them while you miss the fun on the way? I think, for me the fun is to achieve what i want to. For me the fun is to chase my dreams until i finally catch up with them. Ofcourse i miss the fun that life provides me – some times. But its no way equivalent to the fun i have.
Our friend that i am talkin about is not content because he is not able to realize his dreams. Thats what i feel. And once his dreams are fulfilled i bet he’ll be content, happy, and delighted.
