There is an inspiration, a driving hope inside many of us, that when we get the next great thing or accomplish the next great task, we will then become happy. The conquest is set for more and then more again.
To always have a desire for more, is to then become less appreciative of what we already have. What we have is often more than enough to live a full and happy life. It isn’t that we wouldn’t continue learning and thriving, it would just be that we recognize that we already have enough.
Be satisfied with the merits you have earned and the relationships that you have built over time. Hold up the value of these as being all that you would ever need. Should additional blessings come from your focused learning, only add that value to what you already cherish.
“Happiness will never come to those who fail to appreciate what they already have.” — Buddha —
