Ambition. Ever heard of it? Know what it is?
Good. Now that we’ve gotten the technical aspect out of the way, let’s go personal because this is not a business blog. That’s what EMD FX is for (very shameless plug).
From what little research I have done and analysis of the friends and acquaintances I’ve had, I realized that without a doubt, the ones who achieve and serious success are the ones with drive, the ones who constantly push themselves. In short, the ones with ambition.
The reason I’m talking about this on my personal blog is because I am strongly of the belief that ambition helps not only in business but in your personal life as well.
Ambition has nothing to do with where you are now, it is where you want to go. Look at the person who has goals, how he moves towards achieving those goals, regardless of what obstacles are placed in front of him. They do not allow ANYTHING to stand between them and the achievement of previously mentioned goals.
That person is the kind of person you should align yourself with if you hope to achieve any kind of success.
Steer clear of the man or woman who simply drifts from day to day, week to week with the only thought of the future being what they’ll have for dinner…These persons and their friendship will only keep you at the level you were when you met them.
Whilst you can push yourself, it makes such a great difference when those around you are also pushing you towards success also.
That said, get some ambition! Then go out and find acquaintances and friends with the same.
