A Modest Dreamer
Spend a decent amount of time in a foreign country, maybe 6 months, preferably more. Make sure you only have the most rudimentary understanding of its language and culture. Bottle up all that frustration generated by your many failed attempts at communication and assimilation, and let it transform you from the inside out. Only then will you one day awake and find yourself to be the least ambitious person in the world.
