Defined as “a burning desire to create,” ambition has been considered for a long time as one of the most important ingredients for success.
But is it enough to just want something?
The universe is indifferent. It doesn’t give you what you want. It doesn’t satisfy your obsessions. Thoughts don’t magically materialize.
Effort. Sacrifice. Discipline. Patience.
Words to be tied to “ambition.”
The desire, however burning, has to direct actions. Decisions.
We need to keep the flame burning, but successful people also know that ambition is also going on in spite of failure, pain, or fatigue.
It’s not about how bad you want it. Most people want it just as bad as you do. It’s about how hard you’re willing to work for it. How much time and effort are you willing to put in.
And then…doors don’t just start to open. We knock the damn things down.
We create our destiny, despite drawbacks and initial failure.
