Happiness written on a path in yellow paint, with an arrow pointing the way.

What if happiness is not about getting more but wanting less?

I’m often drawn to the wisdom of Seneca, a renowned Stoic philosopher.

Two of his quotes resonate with me deeply:

  1. “If you don’t regard what you have as enough, you will never be happy even if you rule the entire world.”
  2. “Being poor is not having too little, it’s wanting more.”

***Note, Seneca was one of the wealthiest of the Stoic philosophers in the typical sense (lots of money)***

In our pursuit of financial resilience, we’re often pressured to amass more.

  • More money
  • More success
  • More possessions

But what if the real key to resilience and happiness is contentment?

It’s a radical shift, viewing what we currently have as ‘enough’.

It encourages us to focus on what truly matters, such as:

  • Prioritizing our personal growth and wellbeing over societal measures of success
  • Embracing gratitude for what we already possess
  • Cultivating joy in our current circumstances

Do you want more, or do you have enough?
