When can you say, you are content?

Three cars plus a dream house plus a business and a loving family, are these strong signs to say you are contented with what this life can offer? But look at the millionaires, are they? Seems like they still want to have some more.Even ordinary people seem not to content themselves with what they have and I myself find hard to stay contented with what I have at present. Man really has that longing to have some more I guess.Maybe for me I'll learn how to when I see all my family members receive that special gift from our loving Father especially this Christmas Season.What do you think?

I have issues on this: CONTENTMENT. I guess, I rely on MASLOW'S HIERARCHY of NEEDS - where it states that once man is satisfied with need number one he will go the the 2nd level and finally reach Self-Actualization. But then, again, once man is actualized he would look or create more needs for him to be fulfilled. So where does contentment go? I am so sorry. I am such a weird respondent. :)

Lol...I remember my professor teaching us about that and he mentioned that their is a higher level to self actualization but i forgot the term, anyway i guess only the person concern knows when he/she can say to him/herself that he/she is already content.
