A Statement of Contentment

Ways to Success

“There is no greater inflation of value than the value we place upon money,”

-Young Ben Franklin

There are a great many that think that the most successful and motivated of people are those who are never satisfied. This is a poor approach for those who aspire to wealth. You see, contentment makes poor men rich while discontentment makes rich men poor. You must appreciate your life for what it is, not for what it could be. Too often do people assume that gaining riches will solve their problems; but they do not seem to understand that wealth and contentment are not always bed-fellows. No matter who they are, one that’s content hath enough while he that complains hath too much! The desire for a better position in life comes not from money because the use of money is all the advantage there is in having money. In the end, a wise man will desire no more than what he may get justly, use soberly, distribute cheerfully, and leave contentedly.
