He had discovered a great law of human action, without knowing it - namely, that in order to make a man or a boy covet a thing, it is only necessary to make the thing difficult to obtain.

Contentment and happiness

There is nothing or nobody that can make you happy.

The only way to be happy is to be content.

Contentment means that you are satisfied where you are and what you have right now. You don't need anything else and you don't need to be anywhere different. If you can't imagine this right now, then you will have trouble being happy a majority of the time.

Rich people have more trouble being happy because they have more potential. They think "I am here now, but I could be somewhere else." Or, "I have this TV, but this other one is better."

Poor people know their limitations. They don't look forward to exotic trips or fancy cars because they realize they can't afford it. They can be more down to earth and content.

So, you can be content and make yourself happy. Do it today. Do it now.

Happy :-) :-)
