Contentment and gratitude are two very powerful sentiments human beings can feel.
Contentment is to happy about what we already have. Good health, good relationships, good job, good future, etc.
Gratitude is to be thankful. To appreciate what are given to us when we are not entitled to receive.
Both are intricately intertwined and they are both major contributors to a successful, meaningful, and happy life.
To be contented and grateful means that there are no ‘but’s’, but to just be content and grateful.
To be contented and grateful also doesn’t mean that we will remain status quo, or average. As I’ve mentioned, successful people are contented and grateful.
Average people always think that to be contented and grateful means that they have to settle only with what they currently have.
One the other hand, successful people are always able to clearly separate contentment and gratitude with taking actions to achieve the world changing dreams.
You can be contented and grateful and still be unreasonably driven in your pursuit of massive success in life.
