On Happiness and Satisfaction for Job Seekers...

Jul 2, 2013, 11:22 AM
It is not the material things that make us happy. It comes from our dreams, setting goals and achieving them. I comes from acts of kindness. It comes from being grateful for what you already have. It comes from contentment. True happiness comes from inside.


Those, who focus on their possession and the money they earn canĀ“t be truly happy.

I think people get caught up with wanting the "next" thing. They feel they will only be happy once they get a new job, get a promotion, make more money, go on a nice vacation, get a new car.

However, as soon as they get one of those things, they feel an initial satisfaction, but then they get bored with it, the high fades and then they starting wanting the next thing.
If people can't get past finding happiness externally, they will never learn how to be contented with what they have.

For those job seekers who already have a job but are looking for greener pastures, please put in your best at work and learn to be contented with what you have (a lot of people don't even have any). That does not mean you should not aspire to grow.


If you keep complaining and never contented with a N50,000 job, trust me, a N1 million job won't be enough and therefore can't give you that happiness you seek.

It is a vicious cycle with lots of dissatisfaction in it!

Take a look at the picture below. What do you think?




Know thy pocket, live within your means and work harder to achieve your dreams.

Try as much as possible to make yourself happy at every point in time, so that when a "Good Job" comes, it only adds to your happiness. 

Trust me on this.

This post is dedicated to all job seekers who already have a job. Remember, half bread is better than none.

Be contented, happy and grow!
