Ambition. It’s the driving force behind people’s accomplishments. It’s what get’s people famous, rich, or in positions of power. There are also lot’s of people with ambition but never really get anywhere, maybe beause they are overzealous or don’t know how to control their ambition. The journey of a thousand miles sometimes ends very, very badly as the pictures says. Then there are others who have no ambition at all. These people tend to piss people off because everyone else has to pick up their slack.
As I stated, sometimes ambition gets you nowhere. There can many reasons why this is, maybe because those who you work for look at is as sucking up and they don’t like it or someone else has a little more ambition than you do so they are getting the promotions instead of you. Either way this shouldn’t discourage you from continuing with your ambitions in life. It just means you have to work harder to attain them.
Now, what pisses me off is when I am working with someone or I have to deal with someone who has zero ambition in life or anything they do. They would just assume coast by in life, doing as little as possible, thinking everything is just going to be given to them when it’s not. While everyone else is busting their asses they sit back and do nothing and then complain because they don’t get what they want or get ahead and honestly think they should without having to do anything for it.
I have always been ambitious, from my career in the military to getting laid when I was single. Even in other areas I am ambitious, like my flirting, I want to own every movie I can (because I love movies), I want a house, I want to be rich (not a millionaire but well off), I don’t want to have to ever have to pay another dime to my ex and I want my VA disability damn it.
So if you are ambitious but your not getting as far as you would like, don’t let it get you down. Just keep at it. At some point it will catch up to you, it may be 5 yrs, 10 yrs or even 30 yrs later but it will come to you.
