Contentment as all people may know is the key to happiness.Like for instance being contented with your partners in life,financial aspects,work,ambitions and dreams.Does contentment makes you real Happy?Or contentment is the key to a world that makes no change, no improvement,no development,as is as the old world?If people are contented in the past, then what are we today?i know the world that we live in has improve a lot,it may be technology,relationship,services,etc.,being not contented too,is the key to Happiness,to improve life,improve services,fast learning,development and innovations...share some thoughts...

it really sounds quite convincing when it is said that if people were contented in the past, where would we be now? however, contentment brings peace and order in one's self that we tend to see the bigger picture and makes us improve things from where we are using our talents. a person with no contentment may seem to strive for betterment of his life and of others but oftentimes these kinds of people reach nothing. they only tend to plan and start little for inner confusion (due to lack of contentment even from simple achievements) spell gloom.

In some aspects,being not contented is good, just like technology, if people in the past were contented about their,inventions and innovations i think we still live the old way, no computer ,no internet,no mobile phone no airplane ,jets,trains fast services...being not contented sometimes really improve performance and lifestyle,look at this world now....everything is innovated and modified,because of not being contented in the past technology...but when we talk about values in life, its a different story...

I truly believe that contentment improves life. If we are happy and content, we are satisified with life. This is a state of mind we all strive to be in. Contentment can only bring more joy and happiness to your life. Live your life in contentment and you will always be at peace in your soul.

According to happiness can not be measured by the amount of money. Many wealthy people who felt his life was not happy and I wonder why such a thing? I also watched a lot of people whose life is poor but she was happy. Therefore, I have concluded: "People will feel happy if he felt grateful to those given by God, so his heart will be peaceful and calm".

I agree with their opinion . There are many old folks that ae just contented of what they have and where they are. Some are opposite especially those younger ones. They do not just stop there - do not contented with ony 1 business or anything ese yet lots of struggles too. If a person is just contented of what he has then he deprived himself of enjoying life to its fullest. There are so many things we ought to enjoy and have but if w just limit ourselves for being somebody when given a chance to be more than that then .... in vain...

Contentment must improve life. There is nothing worse than living your life with problems and troubles haging over you. Contentment would be my ideal emotion in life. I don't crave millions of pounds but if I had contentment it would mean that my family and I were able to live happily , healthily and contentedly - sounds good to me
