A Beautiful Breeze for healing your broken ambition

Written by 

Ambition is highly skilled in hide and seek. Sometimes you find it lurking behind deep thoughts or in some corner of your heart. But other times, its nowhere to be seen. Edmund Burke, the eighteenth century Irish philosopher once said that ‘ambition can creep and soar.’ Indeed, it can creep into your heart and spill over into your days drop by drop barely fueling focused and diligent action from you. Or it can soar like an eagle into your heart and lift you up into months of sheer diligence and focus.

Is your ambition creeping like a caterpillar or soaring like an eagle? Do you wake up with a clear goal for the day; for the week; for the month; for the year; for your life? Do you throw everything within you towards the attainment of that goal? Whenever you stumble, do you wake and keep going? If your answer to any of these questions is ‘no,’ worry not. Tomorrow, you can delete the ‘no’ and replace it with a ‘yes.’ You can do so through those three magical words, ‘sheer hard work.’ Remember the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, that nineteenth century American essayist, ‘without ambition, one starts nothing; without work, one finishes nothing.’ Tomorrow, work a little bit harder than you did today. That will fix your broken ambition and get you a little bit closer to realization of your goals. That’s how dreams come true.
