My personal experience and actual observation of my life makes me believe that people would never satisfy with what they have and always eager to make their life better. There are several examples that make me develop my conclusion.
First of all, in my hometown, elder people usually ask their children to study hard, in order to gain a great diplomat. In their view, the certification of the hyper education is equal to the future success in the society. The diplomat in my hometown makes people find occupation with high salary much more easily than others without good education. As a result, they are able to raise their social status and had better life in the future. Elders¡¦ passionate attitude toward the diplomat was raised because of their early life of poverty. It is usual that people are not willing to live in the environment that lacking of resources. Therefore, it is reasonable for them to ask children studying hard, which is the most effective way to change their life, since the elders and adults seem to be unable to turn the living situation over in their rest of life.
In addition, I have seen many people—-mostly from the lower status—-being crazy about lottery nowadays. People in my country spend at least five hundred per week for the little chance to become millionaire, no matter how unrealistic it is. The reason that cause the phenomenon is that the life is so hard, especially the negative economy situation in the world recently. People could only gain lower money from their harder work, which makes the life become stricter and stricter. If there is any way the change the terrible immediate, they would try it as soon as possible.
People with different opinion may argue that some people do satisfy with their life and not being willing to chase more property. It is true that some people are not fond of gain money. For instance, those people who devoted themselves into the charity works. For them, the mental value might be more important that the real estate. Nevertheless, for most of people, who lived without enough resource and were just the humans who caring about the life of themselves, or even their family members, it is normal for them to chase better lives.
To sum up, it would be safe for me to conclude that people might never satisfy with their life.
