Hello everyone,

Does "complacent" (disapproving : satisfied with how things are and not wanting to change them - Merriam-Webster) sound natural/correct in the examples I made below?

a. John, I know you're a good professional, but don't get complacent. There's a lot of competition to get a job like yours. So, always try to be better.
b. Mike, you're complacent. That's why you never have any money and still don't know what's like to have a girlfriend. You don't study. You don't try to get job.
c. The Brazilian coach said the National Team is complacent. He said he will try to talk to the players and open their eyes. Winning five World Cups is past.
d. The results are good, but we can't get complacent. Our competitors are doing their best.

Thank you in advance!
