The purpose of life;

One interesting thing about greed is that although the underlying motive is to seek satisfaction , the irony is your desire, you are still not satisfied. The true antidote of greed is contentment. If you have a strong sense of contentment, it doesn’t matter whether you obtain the object or not: either way, you are still content.

The demarcation between a positive and a negative desire or action is not whether  it gives you an immediate feeling of satisfaction but whether it ultimately results in positive or negative consequences.
