As human beings, we are naturally driven to seek satisfaction. We want to be happy and fulfilled. But why is this? What makes us so driven to seek satisfaction?
We are all born with a need to love and be loved. This need for love and be loved is at the heart of our very being and drives us to pursue things that will help us receive this need.
If you look around you, you will see that all living beings have these needs. They need food, shelter, water, air, etc., but they also need love and be loved. All living beings want these things in order to survive long enough. In fact, without these things it would be very likely that life would not exist at all!
The problem with seeking satisfaction is that it can be a trap. The more you seek it, the more elusive it becomes.
The desire to become satisfied with what you have is not an illogical drive. It’s not wrong to want to be happy and contented with your life. But if there’s no underlying reason for your discontent, then you will find yourself constantly dissatisfied with things that should make you happy.
Seeking satisfaction is like looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow: Once you’ve found it, there isn’t much left to do but sit back and enjoy the riches. But if you keep searching, maybe you’ll find something even better than gold - something that will make all your troubles worth while in itself!
I believe that everyone wants to be happy. This is true even for those who are not particularly concerned with their own happiness. When you ask people why they don’t seem very happy, I think most people will tell you that they don’t know. They just aren’t sure how to get there.
But we do know how to get there. We just have to learn how to seek satisfaction from our lives instead of waiting for it to come to us.
If you want a different life, then the first thing you have to do is change how you think about yourself. You need to start thinking about yourself as a person who can make a difference in this world and who has the power to improve your own situation as well as others’.
It’s true that many people never achieve satisfaction because their definition of satisfaction doesn’t include what other people would consider “success”. But if you’re willing to take some risks and try new things, then it’s possible for anyone to find satisfaction in their life if they work hard enough at it.
It’s fine to say, “I am seeking satisfaction. I want to be happy. I want to be content. I want to be fulfilled. I want to be contented with what I have. I want to find peace of mind and contentment in life.”
The secret of happiness is not found in seeking more, but in creating the right value for ourselves. The secret of joy is not found in seeking more, but in knowing how to use what we have effectively.
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33 (KJV)
