“Prosperity depends more on wanting what you have than having what you want.”— Geoffrey F. Abert
We want more, because we stopped wanting more of what we already have. If we focused on what we already have, then there will be no need for looking elsewhere for more. When we shift our attention to what we already have, the desire to have more will decrease. Just like it’s not good to go to a grocery store on a empty stomach because our tendency is to buy more than what we need. What we desire is not necessarily is what we need in our lives. When our attention shift to what we desire, that desire might just be an illusion because we somehow convinced ourselves that we have to have it. In other words, our desire to have it is greater than having it. That’s why it is better to cherish what we already have in our lives today.
