The Incredible Power of Contentment
The Process Of Transformation Through Contentment When we feel a sense of contentment, our satisfaction influences our overall happiness. A simple, minimalistic way of life can help us curb many unwanted desires that cause misery in the future (including financial troubles). The contentment over our significant other boosts any relationship and avoids our efforts to change others into versions we like. Contentment leads us to accept our children and love them as they are, instead of imposing undesirable conditions on them. Being content with a good job helps us avoid being a complaining, grumpy person, leading to more opportunities in the future. Social change is possible if we are content with ourselves and can therefore work positively in the bigger issues that plague the earth.

While listening to others speak, a million thoughts come to our mind, about how we have handled similar situations, and how many mistakes the other person has made in what is being stated. We normally blurt out at the first chance and criticize the other person, or boast about our superhuman abilities.
A better way is to delay that, keeping quiet and simply listening to the other person, focusing on one's breath if needed.
