Personal satisfaction can make you unstoppable

Be satisfied!

Yes, people have "motives" other than money, fame, and love, and there are many of them. However, for a large number of individuals, making millions is the ultimate aim, with the ultimate goal of having a large sum of money to enjoy. They often fantasize about traveling and not having to work, but yet having more than enough money to spend whenever and wherever they choose.

Those who seek more money via hard labor and promotions, winning a large prize in one lottery game or another, or accumulating a pot of gold through wise investments are among those who exist. Once again, their ultimate aim is to remove the need to do repetitive tasks at a job.

These young people want to be the next big singer/actor/sports star. They would want to see their names in lights on major brands, on the album cover of the year, and/or the New York Times bestseller of the year, or to have their image shown on the Jumbotron boards at a sports stadium of their choosing, among other things.

Moreover, sure, there are some who would go to any length, whenever and wherever they can for love, which may or may not be returned at any point in time. They attempt to gain acceptability by engaging in behaviors that they would not normally engage in. They also give up things that they want in order to provide what they desire to the love of their lives.

But are they the only reasons that individuals may use to have happy, fulfilling lives? Are there any other motivations for individuals to act in certain ways? Should there be any other justifications? Possibly, there are some more selfish reasons, or perhaps even more important, some less selfish ones, for doing what we do.

While earning money is essential to cover daily living costs such as a place to live (rent or mortgage payments) and the associated utility bills, earning money is not sufficient (gas, electric, and water expenses). As for the telephone and transportation expenses, we are all dependent on them in our daily lives.

But how much more do we really require? Investing in dividend-paying stocks or putting hundreds or even millions of dollars into a savings account is something we aim towards. How much money do we require? Do we really need our daily living space, a holiday get-away house, and maybe even a cottage in the woods to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life? What is the appropriate amount? Is it possible to have too much of a good thing?

This is your life, and it is entirely up to you how you want to view yourself in ten years' time. If you are happy with yourself, you will be surprised at how simple it is for you to solve any problem and move on toward your goal of success. Don't chase after success; success will find you one day; all you have to do is hold on to your faith and be content and thankful for whatever you have in your life. Your position may deteriorate more tomorrow; there is no assurance that anything will occur; thus, be content with whatever you have right now. Make your life as simple as possible; the more complex your life becomes, the more confused and dissatisfied you will become. It is all up to you!

Thus, self-satisfaction is extremely important for your success. If you are not satisfied with the things that are going on in your life, you will always be stuck in problems and stress will take over you. Be satisfied and content to achieve even more in life!
