Here is your short paragraph on Greed!
Greed is defined as an excessive desire to posses or acquire more than what you deserves or need especially in terms of material wealth, authority or fame. There is no end to greed.
Greed may be seen in every individual in various forms. For instance, a person wants or desires towards achieving wealth more than what he/ she can take.
Greed aims to seek satisfaction & permanent happiness but leads to temporary happiness.
Greed makes a person impatient, selfish and conceited which ultimately leads to fear, jealousy and selfishness. For instance, when you work hard and achieve your goals you feel happy. While when you become selfish that all you achieved is only meant to be yours and others do not deserves it at any cost is greed.
Greed leads to frustration and conflicts. However you may enjoy fame, riches, happiness and authority in the beginning but in the long run greed may make you frustrated, anxious, discontent and grumpy by not letting your accumulated wealth go away. Many a time greed brings out the worst person in you making you destructive.
Nobody wants to be with a destructive person. Hence a greedy person becomes lonely & loses ties with people around him. A greedy person fails to understand relationships should be far more valued than wealth. True happiness could not be purchased at any cost but it has to be earned. The consequences of greed differ the way you think. All greed is not equal. Your greed to earn more and losing your job is not good but your greed to earn more and work hard can give you promotion. So it’s good.
However if propelled in a right direction greed can create wonders. For instance, greed can prove to be a driving force by scientists to do research & business persons to expand their business and contribute towards the betterment of the society. Greed can even fuel industrialization and civilization. Without greed our forefathers would have not invented cruises, cars and airplanes which have made our lives much easier today.
Greed benefits everyone. Greed is the foundation towards the growth and development of every nation. It is greed of our revolutionaries which has got our country independence. Sometimes greed can be beneficial to others as well. Mother Teresa was also a greedy woman. Her greed to serve the poor helped them to lead a quality life. Missionaries are also greedy to spread their religious beliefs and make the planet sin free.
