You are currently viewing Ambition




An ambition is an eager and sometimes an inordinate desire for preferment, honor, superiority, power or the attainment of something; a drive to obtain object or goal that is immensely desired. It comes from the Middle English word “ambicioun,” meaning an excessive desire for power, money or wealth. Ambition is something that everyone no matter their age or cultural background has instinctively. It can therefore be a driving force for success or in some cases a road to failure.

Many people have different ambitions in life so the word ambition would have different definitions, depending on whom you ask. To me it is a burning (urge) desire to achieve goals or succeed. Ambition is related to dedication, dynasty mindset, motivation and time.

Ambition in other words is the motive force needed to propel all of us to work towards our set cherished goals. It is the dynamic inner force that has led people from all walks of life to cleave to a new path, set a new vision and fight through hurdles to win with honor. It it to try and try again. Through ambitious undertakings we can set goals and find ourselves with-given talents. Ambition is a strong desire to achieve something in life.

A person without any ambition is like a boat without a rudder. Having an ambition needs continuous efforts towards achieving it. A man can achieve nothing if he just day dreams and does nothing else.

There was this show I watched by a Doctor who was talking about the five reasons why successful people are as successful as they are.

Having a plan.

A goal.

A destination.

An ambition.

A dynasty mindset.

Without ambition there’s no purpose. In contrast a goal can help us get organized and take steps towards achieving what we want in our day-to-day lives. Different persons have their own different ambitions which they cherish and plans to actualize with strong will-power and determination which will carry a person forward against all obstacles. Some aim to become teachers, soldiers, artists, politicians, doctors, engineers, etc. Some try to amass wealth and some run after a name and fame.

There are others who aim to serve humanity. The nature of ambition varies from person to person. It depends upon one’s family background, upbringing, social status and economic condition. One should have a noble aim in life and strive hard, honestly, sincerely and with dedication to achieve it.

“The ambitious man is essentially a visualizer and an actualizer. He can visualize something and when he visualizes it he sees exactly how to make it happen.” – Robert L. Schwartz

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that but the really great ones make you feel that you too can become great. Following ones dreams and not giving a second thought to the comment of the people who put us down is what creates a successful entrepreneur.

Spending time with people who have a positive image and attitude can help one get motivated and realize their goals. Persistence can make everything possible; it is an excellent demonstration of ambition. Nothing will ever be just handed to anyone except the odd exception.

Ambition is the motive power behind powerful people who in turn move other people, organizations, countries and the whole world. Ambitious people are the ones who really determine the way the world will look tomorrow and where the history will turn. Ambition is the power behind any kind of progress and change; the majority strives for stability, the ambitious minority wants to alter things and still manages to do it.

Taking a page from Shawn Corey Carter also known as Jay Z and his wife Beyonce of the Roc-A-Fella Records. There may be rougher things in their lives which had occurred overtime but this couple with their set of ambition made it through. Beyoncé and Jay have been together for 14 years, an absolute eternity in the world of celebrity relationships. For the most part they maintain tight control of their image as a blissful, mature couple. Their love has been strong but tense at turns, romantic, glamorous and strained. Regardless they both benefit from a partner who can help them fulfill their individual ambitions.

There is nothing that can stop us from achieving what we want in life. Our only obstacle is ourselves and the extent of our ability to differentiate between a worthwhile and self destructive goal. If you can imagine it you can achieve it. If you can dream i, you can become it. Don’t steal a vehicle but use your ow, and no matter what road you take you will end up where you wanted to be. Chasing a dream is good until the mind is obsessed and is poisoned with the ambition that will change you to a whole new person.

No one is born with the ambition that makes you obsessed with your goals and dreams in life. Certain incidents must occur to push this person to let ambition make you become obsessed with the goals and dreams in life. Chase a noble dream, don’t be over ambitious. One’s motive is one’s aim in life should be noble and good. One should not try to fulfill one’s ambition by foul means. In short one should have a noble aim in life. One’s action should be directed towards the nation’s prosperity. One should strive hard, honestly, sincerely and with dedication to achieve it.
