What is Enough Page 2
. . . . To these people, this kind of life was not satisfying because it was filled with a type of phoniness whereyou never really seemed to have friends in the truest sense, instead a whole bunch of acquaintances that you associated with because they were part of the role, expected as a team player or a corporate gopher.
Now, on the other hand, there are thousands of people who think this is just what they always wanted. If this is the case and they are really happy, then good for them.
But for all those others, when is enough to the point when enough doesn’t mean anything anymore?
We have a friend who had it all – a well paying job, a big house, the cottage that most people would love to have as a house! But he was truly unhappy. There were many who looked at him and couldn’t understand why he was not the happiest man in the world. But as he said to me, “all these things are just material things, they don’t bring true happiness.”
It Is Your Decision
The point is this:
to have enough is something that only your inner self can explain.
It is up to you to really decide what makes you happy and what is enough when it comes to your life, family, job and so forth.
On the other hand, if you feel that enough is no longer what you value, then it is time to make a change to what you really want. Maybe this change requires you to move away from what you have been doing, take a new job or career direction or start your own business.
Maybe it is time to have a hard look at your own values and see whether these values have been compromised over the years to the point where you need to make a big adjustment.
Decide now before you end up forever searching for what is enough.
