Show me a man or woman of ideas and greatness and I will show you a person with a vision. Ambition is said to be a strong desire to do or to achieve something typically requiring determination and hard work. This is according to Dictionary definition. it is the fuel that starts the engine of greatness. Obviously, it is Ambition that gives power to your desire, and determination to follow after your dreams in the first place. And that prompts the question, how big is your dream?

 Ambition nudges your heart with a burning irresistible hunger to take action for what you’ve conceived in your mind to do.

 That’s why Napoleon Hill once said, that “the starting point of all achievement is desire.”  What desire do you have? How do you want to advance your life?  What do you want your life to be remembered for? Do you really have the ambition to dare to be different?

It’s never too late. Ambition has no expiration date as far as there is life.  In this  short post I’m going to provide us with thoughtfully  selected quotes to reinforce your desire to dream big and work hard to achieve the big dreams you have about your life. With no further side talk, let’s dig into it!

Thoughtfully Selected Quotes about Ambition and Words of Wisdom/My Comments

In the midst of your struggles, just remember this quote that “ Success in life comes when you simply refuse to give up, with goals so strong that obstacles, failure, and loss only act as motivation.”

Do you feel pressured? When you feel that your efforts are not been rewarded? Don’t give up, be patient. Was Rome built in a day? No.

“Surround yourself with people who have dreams, desire and ambition; they’ll help you push for and realize your own.”

We have heard this quote often, but that does not diminish its importance. Certainly, we all need motivation, we need to look up to people who inspire us to live our best lives by taking action to achieve the dreams in our hearts. Seek for accountability partner you trust and respect.

I believe that the true ambition is to discover your Net Worth using accounting terms. In this case, y our Net worth at the end of this life will not be calculated or measured by the material possessions you acquired or how much money you stored up. Those are fleeting and can be gone in a moment. But your knowledge of God’s purpose for your life will surely settle it all for you. Sarah AJ.

Ambition is good on itself, but where the ambition is focused is what matters. There’s good and bad ambition. Do you want the end to justify the means or the means to justify the end? Think about it.      –Sarah AJ.

‘Late Nights

‘Early Mornings

‘Very Few Friends

‘Being Misunderstood

‘Feeling Overwhelmed

‘Being Your Own Cheerleader

But Guess What? Don’t give up it’s worth it.”

Likewise, it’s not a bad idea to count the cost of whatever thing you want. Every good product or service can be pricy. Count the cost and be ready to pay the price. That’s it.

“A woman who looks and smells good; dresses and speaks well; loves and laughs of often; is kind and giving; has confidence and class; fears no one but God; and is about her business… She’s winning.”

  1. I really like Napoleon Hill, I have read several of his books. Ambition is a lot of times looked down upon because it can push people to step on others to achieve their own goals. While there is definitely a dark side to ambition, without it greatness would never be achieved by anyone. There would be no IPhone, space program or anything that is truly excellent. I really like all the quotes you compiled, my favorite is “Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.”

    1. Al., thank you very much for the excellent contribution you’ve added. Highly appreciate you. Napoleon Hill was a great thinker. His teachings and wisdom continue as they are timeless. I’m glad to know that you’ve read several of his books. That’s remarkable, you must be an avid reader.
