    People sometimes feel their ego is fulfilled. Soon fulfillment disappears because ego needs constant activity. Ego is just like cycling - you have to feed it continuously: this challenge, that challenge, this activity, that activity - something has to be attained. 

    The ordinary religious person is told to remain satisfied, contented, with whatsoever is the case. Be satisfied. Satisfaction is one of their fundamental teachings. Man is meant to become a god. Less than that won't satisfy you, less than that is of no use. You can have all the money in the world, all the power, all the prestige possible, and still you will remain empty -- unless your divine nature flowers.

     

    It may be just semantics but fulfilled wouldn't be an idea I would use with ego. The ego's appetite can be filled like a meal is good for a little while but it doesn't get satiated for very long so I hear you on the cycle.
