Why We Are Never Satisfied with What We Have

I have to admit, I do it too. I complain. Seek better. Complain again. Ridiculous cycle. It's more of a condition really. A humanity disease, I think we are born with it. It is almost as physical and useful as a regular appendage. Don't get me wrong, being dissatisfied with here, has got us all to a lot of great theres. Otherwise America would still be in dreary old England and we wouldn't have the 4th of July.

Most progress has something to do with wanting more, better, different. But it isn't always good. People jump from relationship to relationship, place to place seeking what they didn't find in the previous opportunity. It's worth considering, for a moment, that maybe we don't take full advantage of the opportunities that exist, right where we are.

Financially, we are always striving for more. No matter how big the raise, somehow we are still always just scraping by. A very particular group of dissatisfied individuals resides in the settlement recipient community. Those are the people who are receiving payments spread out over time. Impatient for the money, sometimes justifiably so, they cash in their future payments to get their money sooner. So instead of receiving the regular payments spread out over time, they choose to accelerate their payout. Of course, the reason is they think it would be better that way.

It isn't always better to unstructure your payments. Just like it's not always better to get a new car, move to a new place, and get a new love interest. There is a healthy time, motivation, and method for improving your situation, be it financial or otherwise. Consider carefully, take a moment and consider, if the way the things are, might not be good enough.
