Should we have ambitions? Are they associated with a selfish desire to have more or a strong desire to have something we don’t need? Are they the result of an inquiring mind or internal want? As long as ambitions are not malicious toward others, they should be put into action.
We can be held back by peers or elders. Do they have good reasons, or are there inclinations to sidetrack us by those who are tainted by anxiety, crudeness, resentment, or other deficiencies? Let no one hold you back from your goal.
Whatever you start, put your heart into it, but realize nothing is forever. One may accomplish their goal only to realize it no longer matters. That just means you have come to the end of one iterest and are ready to take on another.
Ambitions should not determine a persons life. We are humans first and our ambitions are merely additions to our basic mission for compassion and survival. Fulfilling our goal should include the elimination of any distresss involved in attaining the goal.
Once our goal is accomplished there is nothing standing between us and our future desire to fulfill any ambition that challenges us to be our best. Ambitions with good intentions unite us all to share in humanity and they bring a sense of accomplishment that nourishes our heart. If we hesitate to pursue an ambition that has benevolent possibilities we may very well have lost an opportunity to make a difference in someones life.
