“Contentment is natural wealth, luxury is artificial poverty.” —Socrates
In our consumeristic-culture where discontent is promoted and material gratification is encouraged, learning to be content can be very difficult.
That is why at Providend, we focus on purpose-driven financial planning for our clients so they can begin to live a life of contentment.
Watch this short video as Christopher Tan, CEO of Providend, as he shares the meaning of true contentment.
Hello everyone. Thank you for watching this video clip. We hope that through this way, we are able to share some of our thinking and leave some food for thought and maybe make small impact to your financial and non-financial life.
Today, I want to talk on contentment.
What is contentment? Contentment is not a passive acceptance of things. But rather, it is an active pursuit of what is important for you, knowing that in life, we cannot have everything.
Many a time, for people, contentment is a passive acceptance of the situation. It is “I have no choice and therefore I have to be contented.” But that’s not true contentment. True contentment is about spending time thinking about what is the most important thing that you must have in life. And once you have those things in life, you are happy. You know you can’t have everything.
Why is it important to be contented? Because when we have a heart of contentment, we have a heart of gratitude. And when we have a heart of gratitude, we can always be happy regardless of situations.
And that is why at Providend, when we do our retirement planning for our clients, we take time to help them understand what matters most to them. What are the things that if they have, they will be contented. And after they make all these life decisions, then we will help them make financial decisions to support these life decisions.
