Complain, complain, complain! First, it’s not enough money, then no food and now not enough of a variety! It’s Never Enough! Is it?
The question is, when is it enough for us?
It will never be enough until we learn to understand the “why” behind every wants and desires. Greed is another reason why it is never enough.
We want what we can’t have and show less value for what we do have. We go any mile to have what others have. It’s okay to admire and emulate other people and their achievements, but we must know where to draw the line, so we don’t grow bitter and jealous.
It’s okay to have a drive or even lofty goals. They give us a sense of meaning, something to look forward to, and to keep us motivated.
The critical point is to explore the “why” behind your every goal.
It’s time we break the habit of bitterness, greed, and jealousy!
Today, success is wrongly measured in money, and we are all on the quest to want more and accomplish more and more. Somehow no matter what we achieve, it’s just never enough.
We spend our whole lives reaching and striving for the next big thing. When will it ever be enough? Trust me; this journey can be both exhausting and exceptionally stressful at the same time.
Think about it: We tend to spend more time striving and working toward goals than achieving them. Once we reach a goal, the high we get from success wears off quickly. It’s not long before we’re obsessed with the next glorious thing.
From now on, ensure you pick goals that provide internal satisfaction regardless of size. Pick goals that promote growth and fulfillment and align with your inner dreams and passions.
For example: if your goal is to get a car this year, make sure the vehicle would satisfy the “why” you need it. Don’t buy that car to please your neighbor.
Goals without a fulfilling “why” would always leave us disappointed and with the feeling of “It’s not enough yet.”
I agree with Erich Fromm – Greed is a bottomless pit that exhausts the person in an endless effort to satisfy the need without ever reaching satisfaction – https://bit.ly/3Q7eH24
Do you still crave more? Have you lost every sense of happiness despite all you have achieved?
If yes, its time to ask yourself these questions;
* What is my goal?
* Why am I setting this goal?
* Is the reason for setting the goal going to give me internal satisfaction or external recognition?
* Is the goal for you, or is it meant to please only the people around me and increase my status quo?
We are guilty of complaining to God and anyone who cares to listen—forgetting everything God has done for us. Often, we see the glass as half empty instead of half – and sometimes more than half – full.
Today, we need to start counting our blessings more often and say “it’s enough” with a grateful heart!
Blessings and Love ❤️
