We all know people who pursue money, power, or pleasure as their ultimate end. They are never happy because they can never get enough, and they always want more and more for themselves.
These things however, are temporary and fleeting, and even if their possessions make people feel good for a while, soon enough the feelings of satisfaction run out. Yet, like an addiction, they yearn for more.
There are many people in the world who seem to work very hard and achieve success, money and fame even, but a true sense of lasting fulfillment is still largely absent from their lives because they have not dedicated themselves to serving a greater good.
The positive emotions of true fulfillment tent to come most strongly as a result of hard work and sacrifice in the service of an end that is bigger than ourselves.
