Contentment has both a positive and negative perspective when placed alongside concepts that frame our leadership. For example, “Always be content with where you are, but never who you are.”
The idea is to accept and be content with what we have and where we are in life, but we should always hunger to grow and improve in our personal development.
There is a place for contentment, but we must not allow contentment to follow a path of complacency and a “comfortable with the status quo” way of thinking.
The contrast between content and discontent makes the difference in how we approach the future of leadership.
