Ambition has a funny place in society. I’m not quite sure if “having some sort of ambition” is looked down upon or veered upon with respect. I think aiming high is really important.
Having big and bold goals is the first challenge. The second, of course, is getting to them. But the first is often really challenging.
Courage. That is the word apple used to describe getting rid of the headphone jack. It is also what you need to have the audacity to have big goals.
Most people do not have big goals to begin with. That is okay, because big goals are not what make everyone happiest. BUT, the world needs big thinkers — people that take incredible risks to do incredible things.
But in order to give ourselves a shot, we must surround ourselves with people who may believe in us.
“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.” — Mark Twain
The people are who matter most.
