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:
- “If you don’t regard what you have as enough, you will never be happy even if you rule the entire world.”
- “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?
