For ambition is a desire for success, merged with cognitive action (thought) and physical action to produce desired outcomes.
In this life, never settle for average. Be elite. There will be highs and lows but this is what you signed up for by aligning yourself with your ambition. Within the journey are your lessons, your personal development, your suffering, your joy, and your brilliant success. Your ambition will teach you that your struggles, your hustle, and your battles are blessings. Ultimate success in life comes not from something external, but from something deeply internal. It comes from a sense of esteem you hold about yourself, which is not something you can ever get from someone else. You must use what drives your ambition to continue to grow and push yourself, to do more and give more than is comfortable or you even thought possible. The wealthiest person on earth is the person who appreciates, who makes a difference in the lives of others, who is grateful, and who is driven to have an impact.
People want you to fail because that is human nature. People will not gloat about your success, but will happily gloat about your failure. It’s just a fact of life. When you have naysayers attempting to bring you down by cutting you down there are two ways respond: One is to shrink and fear that maybe you will fail; the second is to grab hold of your ambition and make sure you succeed because of the naysayers. The greatest gift you give these doubtful, critical, envious and negative people is your success and happiness. Use their negative noise to fuel your ambition, keeping you committed and on course. When you start having short term wins, you start validating why you’re here, and you come to see that success is the best revenge. There is no need to have “words” with naysayers, simply prove them wrong.
“The best revenge is massive success.” Frank Sinatra
