'A' IS FOR AMBITION
This week's blog post is the first in a series of eight posts relating to the subject of ATTITUDE. Today, we will start with 'A' is for AMBITION. Be sure to check back each Monday to see what the next letter in the word ATTITUDE stands for.
Ambition, am-bi-tion (plural am-bi-tions) aim or goal: an aim or objective that somebody is attempting to achieve
Anyone truly motivated to achieve something will generally achieve what they want or need to achieve. They have a quality we call ambition. People with ambition can really make things happen. They have an aim or a goal and they "go for it!" because they have such a hunger and a craving for achieving a specific result.
I believe having ambition is a key attitude for achieving success in life that starts with having a worthy goal or aim to pursue. We all know people who lack ambition, and when we look more closely, we see they also lack purpose and direction in life. It's pretty hard to get excited about going nowhere! With no vision, goal, or anything to aim at, they get lazy and apathetic.
On the other hand, we all know someone who is incredibly ambitious and full of zest and enthusiasm for what they are doing. Upon further investigation, we discover they are that way because they know where they want to go, and how they plan to get there. You don't have to work hard to get these kinds of people motivated and excited, do you?
One of the best ways I know to become more ambitious is to figure out what you really want and just go for it! If you truly desire something, and you have a goal or an aim to achieve, you can be among those who make things happen. Nothing or no one can stop you!
As you reflect on your level of ambition this week, take some time to jot down:
3 things you want in life
3 things you need to occur in your life
3 things you must complete or accomplish
Then, muster up the ambition to achieve these objectives. Call or write to me if you need some encouragement or ideas to help you succeed. I am at your service.
