I am ambitious. I have always been ambitious. I think it surprises people, because I don't think I would necessarily come across as an overly ambitious person. But I can't help it, there is just something inside of me where I want more than I could probably ever achieve.
I am not just ambitious in my own life, I get really ambitious about everyone else too. Like, I honestly believe hard work pays off and I have the 'why not' attitude. Like, why can't I run the country? Who says? That is a really terrible example, but do you get me? There are so many new jobs being created all the time. Like jobs in social media never existed 10 years ago, so who knows what new careers will be available in the next ten years. I am also of the attitude that if you really put your mind to something you can achieve it. I read lots of articles about people who were always put down but went on to achieve amazing things. Like, JK Rowling got turned down like 7 times and now everybody who is anybody knows exactly what house they would be in if they were to go to Hogwarts. If that isn't a reason to be ambitious then I don't know what is.
In my own life, I always get these dreams in my head that I really want to achieve but they are always really difficult. I don't want to share too much because they are pretty personal but I get a lot of feedback like 'you know that is pretty impossible right?' or 'no one actually does that'. But these comments will never stop me being ambitious. Someone has to succeed or else the world would be very empty, right?
I think being ambitious is built-in to me.
What about you? Do you need motivation or does it come naturally?
