Does Satisfaction Come From Having Less or More?
Quote of the Day:
“He who is not satisfied with a little, is satisfied with nothing.” Epicurus
Meaning of the Quote:
Be grateful for whatever little you have because if you are not, more or less nothing will make you fulfilled.
Discussion of the Quote:
Everyone has to start somewhere. When you are grateful for the little that you have, you put yourself in a position to receive more just by your attitude. Your satisfaction with the little that you have will create a channel for more to come to you.
Furthermore, when you are not happy with the little that you have, it puts you in a space of unease. Therefore, you are not satisfied with anything. So you have to put yourself in a spirit of gratitude for more to flow to you. Whoever is satisfied with little will also be satisfied with much, and whoever is dissatisfied with little will also be dissatisfied with much.
If you are not satisfied with little, will you be satisfied with more? Additionally, if you are satisfied with little, will more add to your satisfaction? Indeed, some people are truly satisfied with the little that they have and having more will not affect their level of satisfaction. However, they may seek to gain more not for themselves but to share with others.
On the other hand, others may be dissatisfied with the little that they have. Therefore, they seek to gain more and when they do, they may still be dissatisfied with the more that they have gained. Maybe having more does not guarantee a higher level of satisfaction or some people may be satisfied with having more. To each, his/her own!
