    You need to be satisfied with what you have
    He was not satisfied with what he had he wanted more and more
    You have to thankful for what you have and not compare yourself to other people

  11. Lauren๐Ÿ˜‹

    Thankfulness, gratetude , and appreciation for what you have is what it takes to be content. Also, not comparing what you have with others because there’s always someone out there with much more, and someone else with much less. William Randolph Hearst wasn’t content because he continued to want more than he already had, and he was a greedy person who wanted to be known for his wealth and riches. I need to be more thankful because I tend to compare what I’ve got with others, and it doesn’t get me anywhere. Instead, I need to see what I have and think of ” what if I didn’t have this?” Or ” do I NEED more than what I’ve got?” etc…

  12. Evan is exited about my sister's preformance Wednesday.

    1. Satisfied with what one has or is. 2. No, he didn’t seem content. 3. For things to be fair.

  13. you need to be satisfied for what you have. He was not satisfied he always wanted more. you have to be thankful for what you have, and not just think all day about the stuff you want

  14. be glad for what you have.
    no.
    something that you want

  15. Jesus should make you content. No not in a million years he was definitely not content he was always in want For better than what he had. It takes you to have to be thankful because if you aren’t thankful for what you have you most likely won’t be content . You also need to able to realize what you have not just dwell on the stuff that you don’t have.

  16. Neymar (Sage)

    1) Satisfied with what one is or has.
    2) Not at all he wasn’t satisfied with what he had he kept wanting more.
    3) You need satisfaction cause you need to be satisfied with what you have also thankfulness cause you need to be thankful for what you have and how fortunate we are cause other people have less than us so we need to be thankful.
