Being Content Isn't the Same as Being Without Ambition

Being Content Isn't the Same as Being Without Ambition

The theme for today, in my personal study and development, is “contentment.” 

That’s not something I’ve really cultivated in my life. In fact, if I remember right, I’ve literally said the words, “I’ll never be content.” Because, to date, my perception of contentment was that it meant you are giving up on growth. You are willing to take only what you have, and never go for more. It meant lack of ambition.

But I don’t think that’s right. In fact, I know it isn’t. There’s more to contentment than that.
