There is often negative connotation with the word “ambition.” It’s a sad truth of our society that ambition is automatically associated with greed, or money and power without soul.
A strong desire to do or achieve something
Why would anyone consider that a bad thing? Why are we not encouraging every single person, every child in school, to be ambitious? Just imagine the sheer energy of motivated people, if every one of us had a strong desire to achieve something.
Do we all have to achieve the same thing? Do we all need to aim for millions of dollars, Hollywood fame, or a noble prize? Of course not. Ambitions are just another aspect of our dreams. Even the experts I interviewed had different takes on ambition.
Do you ever admit you are ambitious?
Are you ashamed of it, or do you simply hide it to avoid conflict?
How do you react when other people say they are ambitious?
