I've been satisfied with all I have got so far. Although I know they are not the best, but they are the best I can get out of. It doesn't mean that I would not strive any more. I would do even better in order to make things even better if they are within my reach, if I fail, I would not feel so frustrated because I know I've tried.

Hi, easyzheng. I totally agree with you. After reading your words, I think you're an optimistic person.:) Whether we achieve our goals or not eventually, as long as we've strived for them, we'll be contented with it. Wish you happy and positive each day!

Since I haven't rally achieved all my dreams in life yet, I could say that, in a way, there's no contentment in my life yet. However, I would continue to strive harder in order for me to attain all my goals in life. I know that it would be a very hard struggle and the journey to the top would surely be quite a daunting task, but with will power, strength of character, and uncompromising belief and faith in myself, I know that I could conquer every seemingly insurmoutable obstacle that I would encounter. All I know is that if I've given my all in trying to achieve everything that I want to accomplish in life, I would certainly feel a sense of contentment.

Hi, acmepride. I think you give us one of perfect responses. I'm glad to know that you'll continue to strive harder to attain your goals in your life. Yeah, we should accept that the journey to the top would be an arduous or extremely difficult task for us. But if you have enough willpower, confidence and uncompromising belief, you'll achieve your dreams or goals at last. Wish you happy at any time! ^_^

Hello, msBetty. Now I'm satisfied with what I've owned. I think it's difficult for us to achieve all of our goals in our whole life. So we should learn to be contented with everything around us. The most important thing we should do is not always complaining but try our best to strive for our goals or dreams. Whether reach them or not, as long as we've gone for them, we'll satisfied with them. Just my own opinions. Wish you happy every day! ^_^

humans will never be contented with what they have. That's the basic principle of needs and wants. we will desire more things once we get it, the fleeting satisfaction we gained is not contentment because we will want another, need another.

Once the humanity is contented with what they have, then everything is set with what we have at present. But our elders have ignited the desire to achieve more and more in the human life, because of which the technology is advancing to unimagunable heights today. Every one of us have the part to play in this advancements. Those who say they are contented have no role to play in this fast advacing age. So if you feel that you should contribute your share in the fast advancing world, do not be contented and work hard to achieve new peake!
