Developing Positive Ambition

Ambition is a strong desire to do, or to achieve something. Many people just 'think about it' and that desire then turns into just another fantasy. by Michael Corthell Ambition is not a dirty word, but it can be a 'good or bad' thing depending on who has this strong desire to achieve because it is personality based. If a person is good and has a positive attitude toward life and people, all will be well. If not, then negative results will ensue. ''Everyone endeavors as much as possible to make others love what he loves, and to hate what he hates''   —Benedict de Spinoza Ambition is a trait or disposition, and is often confused by many with aspiration which is goal setting or reaching for an objective. Ambition is persistent and pervasive, and a person can't alter this trait any more than he can alter any other character trait. A truly ambitious person, having achieved one goal, soon starts plan another and will strive toward it.
