There is no such thing as too much ambition.
Small minds will tell you that there is. But there isn’t.
Greatness was never achieved by thinking small or doubting your abilities. Maybe I am overly confident in myself, but I doubt it.
This morning, I was having a conversation with my colleague about how I don’t have a fear of losing my job – not because I think it would be impossible for me to lose my job – but even if I did, I have the utmost belief that no matter what life throws at me I can’t be broken and I will always be okay.
Yes – I can fail, repeatedly. I can be hurt. These things happen while living a full life but these are parts of the journey, not the end of it. And it’s because of these beliefs and understandings that I don’t think there’s such a thing as being too ambitious. I recognize that life is a dream, and I dream lucid.
My first year of college in my Intro to Psych course my professor wrote a message for our class to read: “Positive mental attitude + Goals = Success.” This message has never served me wrong.
If you believe in yourself, your mission, and you have the tenacity of a honey badger – you can’t be stopped.
When people tell you that your goals and dreams are too lofty, remember: no one ever broke new ground or did anything epic by thinking “Let’s be realistic,” or by self-imposing limitations.
May your dreams and aspirations be larger than life, and may you be tenacious in achieving them.
