What is your motivation? Do you have a dream; a why? Do you have a plan to fulfill your goals? Will your ambitions inspire your children and their children?
Whether we are forced into quarantine from being ill or self-quarantined because of exposure or even as prevention; One thing sure, the travel and recreation we once enjoyed freely are under severe restriction.
Why not turn a negative into a very positive thing? Today is a great day to purposefully and mindfully search your soul to define your dream, your life goals, your ambition.
Very often, those in tune with their bodies experience “gut feelings” about certain things, people, and decisions. We hear, too, that ambition is a feeling or desire that comes from within. Depending on how strong that desire or drive is, results in what we can achieve.
The good news is that we have the power to Create that determination. We can create that raw desire within our psyche, using ambition as the fuel to motivate so that failure is not an option.
Ambitious people take risks!
Sometimes you just have to take that risk; jump full throttle and risk it all on one decision. Often that one thing we are afraid of most doesn’t even happen. Don’t live in fear of the unknown; take that leap of faith and understand that being ambitious means being willing to tolerate fear and anxiety. Don’t let fear put you in a self-imposed prison.
Use your imagination!
Your imagination can increase your happiness, helping you escape the ordinary. We can use our vision to ease pain and overcome negative thoughts. Ambition is a state of being; facing challenges tend to curb your positivity and enthusiasm. Talk to yourself, use your imagination to build yourself up! Repeat encouraging words to yourself every day, and you will experience transformation and develop limitless ambition.
Give yourself the gift of time!
Time is our most valuable resource. Make the most of your time and reap remarkable rewards. Be willing to invest time in a project to make it grow and become better. Ambitious people work long hours to see a project to completion. Achievers in life are willing to work hard. They tend to go to bed late and wake up early. Experience the fatigue from working hard to achieve. Your ambition will soar!
Nothing Kills Ambition like following the crowd.
Don’t get caught in the trap of heeding group thought and opinion. If you listen and hear, your heart will guide you, and your gut will affirm the right decisions. Group thinking gathers up all the negative fears and thoughts and puts them in the minds of the group. These, in turn, influence the group thought and, most likely, in the wrong way. Breakaway from the mass hysteria and think for yourself. You will then see opportunities often overlooked when group thought captures your mind. Grab the chance to achieve where others are blind. Your ambition will shine!!
Step out of Your Comfort Zone!
All of us have a constant train of thought. Some thoughts are positive – giving our ambition room to grow. Some are negative and fear-based. Did you know that ALL thoughts are energy? IF the primary energy source is negative, how can our minds be free to create and grow? Start this minute to monitor your thoughts, your self-talk. If you find the views to be negative barriers of doubt and fear, then purposefully add more positive thoughts. You will recognize which frame of mind rules your ideas by the catalyst that motivates you. Practice, bring out positive ambition!
Focus on the lesson.
Recognition is a fleeting thing, and profit will come and go. Strive instead to learn the lesson and gain knowledge from experience. Motivation comes from experimenting, growing, and improving. The journey will keep you interested, and ambition will drive you on.
The “Perfect” Moment will never come.
If you wait until the stars align and the moon and planets ascend, you will never achieve. There is no perfect moment for you to be alive; there is only the present moment. Instead, to become even more ambitious, seize the moment and make it perfect! Focus all your energy on making it ideal for you! The only difference in a “perfect” start and an “average” one is the motivation behind it.
Stick to it!
Commitment becomes painful when the challenges arise, and it’s also the “make or break” period in your life. That stubborn enthusiasm and unwillingness to quit will decide your future. Do you have what it takes? Are you consistent in your efforts? Challenges will cause you to ask yourself what you are willing to sacrifice to achieve your desires. The thing to remember about problems is they arise to test our resolve. Realize this and let your ambition dominate your motivation.
Ambition and action are in bed together because it takes this union to produce results. At times you may find your efforts are not achieving the results you hoped. So what do you do? Take time off and lick your wounds? NO, don’t let the lie that you need the “perfect moment” so you can move forward. You put yourself in danger of becoming lazy, stagnant, complacent, and even depressed. Don’t baby yourself! Determine to push forward in the unknown, chiefly when you are afraid. This action will build self-confidence, motivation, and, yes, increase your ambition!
Ambitious people don’t set limits on themselves. Fear doesn’t hold them back. Identify your goals and create a timeline for achieving them. Stay committed even when the challenges arise. Dreams actualize when nothing is allowed to stand in their way.
