When most people are confronted with a change in their lives that they didn't want, such as death or divorce, negative feelings start setting in. These people start looking at everything in their lives with a "glass half empty" attitude. Are you doing that? Are you looking at every aspect in your life with a critical eye? Are you finding that you are dissatisfied with everything in your life? Are you wondering why you don't have more? Do you look around you and only see everything you don't have?
We all want more. We want more for us, more for our children. We see best on rich and famous and we want that for ourselves. Realistically we all know that it isn't possible. Yet we are still hoping, buying lottery tickets by millions. Some how we equate money with happiness. When we see those rich and famous people with their big white smiles.... they sure do look happy!
Of coarse money can't hurt! We should always try to improve ourselves, our lives in every way, personally and monetarily. But these things don't happen overnight, it takes time to build and rebuild. In meantime you must be happy with your life way it is now. You must look at your life and say, "If this is all there is, I am happy, I am content."
By always looking at what you don't have, you are living a dissatisfied life. You can continue to live your life this way but you won't have a happy or content life. You will always be saying, " When I get this I'll be happy." Most people with this attitude are still unhappy when they get what they want. They are still dissatisfied. This current achievement doesn’t mean anything to them anymore. They have already seen something else they want and they are striving for that.
