Determination and ambition play a crucial role when pursuing success. Learn how and why.
Determination is a powerful thing. It drives a person to achieve things that they otherwise wouldn’t, if they were to attempt it undetermined.
When your heart is consumed with determination, all your energy and focus is directed at that one end, and you will not rest until you achieve it. Everything else around you fades away and becomes less prominent.
I think that is what makes you attain excellence. Without determination, it is easy to quit or not try hard enough.
If you fill your life up with action, you make things happen and you don’t wait for anything or anyone to do it for you.
You want a good future? Start taking action toward that end. Set goals, work hard, persevere and achieve.
You need hope in your life? Don’t wait for it to come looking for you. Create it for yourself. Do things that give you hope for tomorrow.
It is through action that you set the wheels of life in motion to get what you want and be who you want to be. Passively sitting around and waiting for things to happen will not help.
By far, the worst thing you can do to a highly ambitious person is to try and stop him. That will prove severely inefficient because an ambitious person will just use that as fuel to go further.
That’s what ambition feeds on, opposition. If you look at all the people well-known for their ambitious ventures, you’ll discover that most (if not all) of them had a life-changing confrontation with resistance at least once in their lives. Something or someone that tried to stop them from doing what they had set out to.
All that did was to bring out the best of them; the creativity, endurance, sacrifice and energy to go on till the end.
