Look at the subject of your discontent, whatever it may be. Then imagine it gone out of your life and look at what remains. Would things be better without it?

Imagine yourself perfectly happy. Always. Would your life be better? It’s tempting to think it would be. But I imagine it’s like eating nothing but desert for the rest of your life. How long until you’d crave something hearty?

Imagine yourself the richest person in the world. Then ask yourself how fulfilled Elon seems to you.

Remove discontent itself from your life. What would you do and why? Not a thing because you lost all reason to do anything. Because that is what discontent is… the only reason to do anything that we have.

So don’t be discontent with discontent. Or rather, be discontent 🙂 It’s the engine that drives all things.
