Compare, contrast, then look at your life.

Imam Ibn Qudama Al Maqdisi said regarding the means to be satisfied:

4. To constantly reflect upon the extravagance of the Jews, the Christians, the lowly and the foolish. And then look at the condition of the Prophets, those who are friends of Allah and the righteous and listen to their speech and research their condition. And then let his intellect choose between imitating the lowest of the creation or the best of creation according to Allah. Until having patience upon little and being satisfied with little becomes easy for him. And that if he takes please in eating then the animals eat more than him. And if he takes pleasure in intercourse then the sparrow mates more than him.
