"He who is not contented with what he has, would not be contented with what he would like to have."
The inspirational message for the self employed from this quote is:
Socrates gives us peace of mind when it comes to the battle between contentment and desire. The basic premise is when do you know you’ve got enough? If you have what you need yet are still looking for more, what makes you think that you will ever find the right amount? Some people have a hunger, a desire for more. Uncontrolled desire amounts to greed. On the other hand, if you can be content with what you have then you do not need to have more, even though you might realise that having more would be better. The self-employed create peace of mind for themselves, their family and their employees as they build practices based on the belief that less is more.
