Discontent is the source of all progress.
You need to get pissed. You need to be miserable with the status quo, with your current circumstances, and learn to embrace chaos, embrace the unpredictability of hurling yourself into the unknown.
Transcendence is not an achievement, it is a continual progression. It does not end. When you stop changing, you stop transcending. Life moves forward all the while, and when we stall or stop for a moment or longer to bask in our achievement, we lose the footing we sought so desperately to gain. And regaining lost time is a feat no man has been able to surmount.
