Ambitious people take charge of their destiny and don't expect others to bow down to their needs. They know where they are going and what they have to do to get there.
They are capable of changing and measuring up to their dreams, always watchful of the opportunities that are out there for those who are willing to see them and seize them.
Those who wish to be more, know more, do more, give more or have more, have a purpose and a powerful internal drive that leads them to dream bigger and go further.
Ambition drives them to advance and accomplish their goals.
When you ask what message a city sends, you sometimes get surprising answers.
As much as they respect brains in Silicon Valley, the message the Valley sends is: you should be more powerful. Power matters in New York too of course, but New York is pretty impressed by a billion dollars even if you merely inherited it.
Sometimes ambition gets a bad rap--seen as a negative attribute rather than a positive one.
In my experience, it's ambition that drives people to accomplish great things--without it, nothing great would ever get done.
Ambition is a major driver for personal growth and development.
No one can succeed without a healthy dose of ambition.
