It makes sense but “if you be like this” and “you are more relax and calm” have some small grammar errors. Overall, it would sound more natural if you wrote/said something like this:

“In life... be satisfied with what you have... if you are, you’ll be more relaxed and calm.”

Or

“If you’re satisfied with what you have in life, you’ll be more relaxed and calm.”

I hope that helps.
