We often hear about how those who have the most feel the least satisfied and for most truly wealthy people, this may be true, but Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger are not your average billionaires. At the Berkshire Hathaway Annual Shareholders Meeting in Omaha, the two provided attendees with important lessons at maintaining contentment no matter what your station in life. A few of the highlights gathered by Zen Habits include:
- Find out what turns you on. Don’t just do a job because you think it will pay a lot, you’ll feel contentment when do something you truly love.
- Don’t worry about what everyone else is doing. True contentment comes from the self -not by chasing the same things everyone else is after.
- Know your strengths. If you’re not good at something, don’t do it. Instead, go with your true skills.
- Know what you like and forget the rest. If you like your house, don’t sell it for a bigger one just because you get more money. Stick with the things you love and you’ll never feel left out.
