Thoughts on Ambition

Ambition is really wanting something we do not currently have and which takes work to obtain - not something within our immediate reach.

Ambition is the mother of all invention – whether for you or something outside of you.

We often think people have no ambition because they do not “want” what society has deemed, or “we” have deemed, as a “high standard.”

Ambition is really wanting something we do not currently have and which takes work to obtain – not something within our immediate reach.

Ambition does not just mean you want to gain a doctorate or rise to the top of a company.

Ambition can be a desire to learn a new skill, accomplish a goal, or gain something – even something tangible.

Ambition not only gives us the passion to work for whatever “it” is but motivates us to take the steps necessary to obtain it.

The key is to realize ambition is personal, something a person individually identifies – not necessarily what others want.

Ambition helps us move forward – whatever “forward” is to a specific person.
