“The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled.

 

For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.”

– M. Scott Peck

Victor Frankl seems to agree with this assessment.

 

“What man actually needs is not a tensionless state but rather the striving and struggling for some goal worthy of him.

 

What he needs is not the discharge of tension at any cost, but the call of a potential meaning waiting to be fulfilled by him.”

John A. Shedd seems to agree:

 

“A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.”
