DISCONTENT IS THE FIRST STEP IN PROGRESS

Greed is always undesirable. But to be ambitious is good. By ambi­tion, we mean that one should/riot be contented with the progress he has made in life. Man should always try for more and more progress. In the past, people used to walk long distances for their needs. Soon they found out that it took up much of their time and energy. So they tried to find out an alternative for walking. Thus wheeled carts were devised. When they were discontented with carts, they developed motor cars. Thus in every field of life true progress has been made by the sheer discontentment of some people in the things around them. This kind of healthy discontentment brings about more and more discoveries.
