    How would you feel if you had everything you needed?

    Would life maybe get a bit boring because the word wish would have lost meaning in your case or would that condition give you the freedom to develop in other aspects?

    i can answer this question because i have everything i'll ever need right now, and maybe even some things i don't need.  The fear of not being able to survive is diminished and it seems like when my brain isn't preoccupied with thoughts of obtaining certain needs that i can concentrate on more productive thoughts smile

    Those who have more than enough can halt boredom by becoming philathropists. The true spirit of America is philanthropy. When care and kindness go, humanity exits with it. read more

    Life will be really boring because the will of getting something or reaching to a place only drive our life. If that will is not there, then we will have a dead life. not a lively one.

    I've been in the situation where I really didn't need anything I couldn't get and it was a happy time for me.
    I didn't confuse needs with wants, which is a common thing. It certainly didn't make life any more boring since I was able to devote much more time to the things that I like. Fishing became far more important than working 60 hours a week. I was able to pursue interests that I couldn't afford like photography. I was able to give, both time and money, to things that I believe in.
    Now if I were just in that position today,,, lol.

    Life will ALWAYS be a journey of discovery for me.. its exciting and challenging because I am still pushing towards those unattained goals. Not sure how I'd feel if I had it all... but I can honestly say I am happy at this point of my journey.. still searching.. still striving.. still reaching..

    I believe that we will never be content but will be ever expanding in this physical world. Our job here on Earth is to have a joyful experience and expand the Universe.

    I can't even begin to describe the feeling ... LoL

    Actually having everything you need if it lasts longer than a few days or at least weeks means the feeling is wrong, it's time to re-evaluate

    It would be awful. I think I would get bored and have nothing to write about! But it would be wonderful if for a short while I could have it all, that would be nice, but I don't think I would want it to last forever.

    I'd feel uncomfortable explaining to everyone why I had a house full of pistachio ice cream and Guinness draught.

    I do have everything I need.  The word wish and needed don't necessarily go together.

    I already have all I need :-) We all do, we just have to learn to actually see this. Life is not about living better, its about preparing for departure. We are not permanent and neither is life.

    By definition, human NEEDS are very basic: food, water, shelter. Our wants and desires are completely different than our needs.

    You mean if I have everything that I need now? That would be great. I will be contented.

    But if you mean I have everything that I need to last a lifetime, I don't want that. My life would be downright boring and without a challenge to propel me to go on living, that would not be a life but merely an existence. I don't want that.

    i don't think it'd get boring at all, if i had everything i needed, then surely that would give me everything i needed to get the things i wanted, and that's where the fun would begin i suppose

    In a word Sad !

    Because it would mean I had nothing left to aim for or be inspired by.

    To develop doesn't require freedom from need, in fact that need is what drives the desire.

    If you had everything you needed why would you even bother getting out of bed ?

    Give me a decent challenge and a chance to fail any day...!

    what makes this life of ours a meaningful one is our ways of bringing in to reality our hopes and dreams, things we still don't have; now if everything is being spoon fed to you oh life would be so effortless, no need to dream or hope for anything but to at least have something missing to crave for smile  Life is more exciting if you lack something

    It would feel GRRRRREAT! - I would be able to spend more time doing what I like and not have to waste time working for someone else and the tax man.

    People never have all they need because they always wish to have more than they already have. That's life, but the secret is to be happy and enjoy what you have

    Right now i need a new corded drill so that i can fix the dining table chair, its legs have developed a wobble. If i had a corded drill i would feel very happy because then the Mrs would stop nagging at me and my life would become just a little bit easier.

    Whenever I look at the lives of the rich and famous, I realize everything you need isn't what satisfies. It's loving what you have and not, having what you love.

    I'd just be bored and I'd have no drive...It'd good not to have things so you can always keep trying to get them.

    Well, I have everything I need.  My beautiful children make me feel tremendously fulfilled, and my ambitions and dreams give me something to work towards and feel excited about.  These are the only two things I need, and I have them.  I am perfectly contented and blissfully happy, all of the time.  And I've been this way for, ooh... about seven years now.  It's fantastic, never gets boring, never feels stale, and always allows me to wake up in the morning feeling energised and motivated.

    Oh, and I have those basics, of food, shelter and water.  Yeah.  Without those I think life would be pretty awful.  So I'm glad I have those too, of course.  I'm not rich, can't afford to take my kids on holiday every year, can't afford to buy them much, but who cares about stuff like that?  Not me, and not my kids either smile

    If I had everything in life...there would be no meaning in life and I would be one lazy and big fat person since, without working hard for anything, I am getting it.

    Life would be so aimless since the word, "Wish" would be no more on my lips or heart or mind. What to think and what to work for??

    If I had everything I need, I think for a good while at least I would be content and able to enjoy life. However, eventually, I may get bored.
