Why Some People Aren’t Satisfied

Why Some People Aren’t Satisfied

Do you feel that the biggest accomplishment in your life is now something that is ordinary? You no longer feel as excited as you used to once you achieve things. Do you wonder why this happens? 

Most people aren’t satisfied with the things that they have or what they do but here are ways that they can be:

Try New Things

The brain loves to try things that are new. When we get something new like a car or a house, clothes or even a new hairdo, our brain gets excited. It wants you to try things that are new and that you have never done before.

Sometimes we want to do things that we love to do over and over again but if you try and set new goals and do new things, you will be more satisfied.


If your expectations are too high, it could cause you to not be happy. You have to stop waiting for something good to happen and stop waiting to be perfect. If you are waiting too long to meet your expectations, you will give up or get depressed about it.

Stop setting expectations that are too high and learn to set expectations that you can set and then reach.

Being Thankful

We don’t always appreciate and have thanks for things we have. We want to have more and more but we don’t take time to see what is good in front of us.

We need to learn to be thankful for everything and to appreciate what is ours. We don’t want to wait to see what is valuable after we lose it, but we need to see value now.

Humans Aren’t Made to Be Satisfied

Humans aren’t made to be satisfied because it isn’t in our blood. We were taught to work hard, and we have desires that never end. We always want to have more and more.

We Think There is Something Better

We often think that something is better than what we have. We aren’t satisfied because we want to have something different. Sometimes we feel that someone has more and better things than we have, and we want that.

If we want to feel satisfied, we think that we have to have everything that we want until we can’t want anymore. This is something that is not possible.


If someone is completely satisfied, then they will never be motivated to do better. By being unsatisfied with ourselves, we learn to work harder and to work to reach our goals.

When we feel that we have everything we want and need, we will never take action to keep pushing and being better. Everyone needs to have things to strive for.


  1. The argument about motivation is fascinating. It’s true that some level of dissatisfaction is essential for progress, yet it must be balanced to avoid burnout.

  2. Overall, the article presents a nuanced view of human satisfaction. It’s a reminder that while we strive for more, it’s crucial to appreciate what we currently have.

  3. The article touches on some fundamental aspects of human psychology. It’s intriguing how the brain responds to novelty and how expectations play a significant role in our satisfaction.

  4. The notion that humans are inherently driven to work harder and pursue more aligns well with evolutionary psychology theories.

    • I agree. This drive for more can be seen as a fundamental survival mechanism, ensuring continual progress and adaptation.

  5. The concept of never feeling completely satisfied is both a blessing and a curse. It pushes us to achieve more but can also lead to perpetual dissatisfaction.

  6. I find the points made about setting realistic expectations and gratitude quite compelling. It’s true that constantly aiming for perfection can lead to dissatisfaction.
