Contentment = Happiness

Posted in

What makes you as a leader happy? That’s a pretty wide-open question. I guess it depends on the person. Could it be money? Maybe fame? Perhaps power? If your life and expectations reflect what matters the most to you, chances are you’re fairly happy. When your goals conform to your personal priorities, they bring you a higher level of satisfaction.

It is interesting what the Bible says regarding contentment. Philippians 4:11-12 says, “Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

This indicates that contentment, which is the heart of happiness, happens apart from the circumstances of life. God has a significant place and priority in the content leader. Their life has purpose and meaning. When you live out your purpose, you bring meaning to all that you do and focus on what matters most to you.
