Quote Of The Week

This quote by Oprah Winfrey underscores the importance of contentment. If you are content with your life, you’ll have much more to be thankful for. Your heart will be brimming with peace and happiness. You will not compare your blessings with those of others. Instead, you’ll always be grateful to the Lord for His favors.

Contrarily, you’ll never be satisfied if you are not content with your life. You will always be whining and whingeing. Your life will be utterly miserable. You’ll constantly be comparing your blessings with others, and hence will never be at peace. You’ll be brazenly ungrateful.

It is therefore important to appreciate positive things in your life and be grateful to Allah, the Almighty. However, contentment must not be equated with complacency. Complacency is a negative quality as it stops you from working hard and improving your life. Contentment, on the other hand, means that you are thankful to God for whatever you have and still try to improve your situation in life.

Wrapping up this discussion, lemme say that the way you perceive your life determines how happy and satisfied you’re with your life. If you have a positive mindset, you’ll always feel contented and happier in your life. But, if you have a negative mindset, you will never be happy and satisfied. The choice is yours.

  1. Very beautiful quote and good explanation by you, Shahbaz. I think contentment is really important for a fulfilling life, and we should always focus on what we have rather than what we lack. This attitude will help cultivate a sense of gratitude in us.
    However, as you’ve suggested, we must differentiate between complacency and contentment, and keep striving for personal growth and development.

    • Thanks for reading and sharing your insightful comments, Ahmad. Of course, we can only be happy if we focus on what we have instead of what we don’t have. This is the key to contentment and a happy life.
      At the same time, we must not be complacent, rather we must always strive for the best.
      Quran says: “And that there is not for man except that [good] for which he strives.”

  2. Love this quote and it holds a lot of truth. It’s really all about our mindset sometimes. When we continuously expect more things instead of being grateful for what we have, we just end up unhappy no matter how much we have.

    • Yeah, right mindset is everything. Human wants are unlimited, and hence can make everyone unhappy if they keep expecting more instead of being grateful for what they have. It’s their attitude/mindset that makes them contented or otherwise.
      Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Pooja.
