Explore the value of Ambition
TEACHING BY EXAMPLE
It should be your care, therefore, and mine, to elevate the minds of our children and exalt their courage; to accelerate and animate their industry and activity; to excite in them an habitual contempt of meanness, abhorrence of injustice and inhumanity, and an ambition to excel in every capacity, faculty, and virtue.
Goals give you more than a reason to get up in the morning; they are an incentive to keep you going all day. Goals tend to tap the deeper resources and draw the best out of life.
The world is moving so fast these days that the man who says it can't be done is generally interrupted by someone doing it.
Wilferd A. Peterson
To do something, however small, to make others happier and better, is the highest ambition, the most elevating hope, which can inspire a human being.
It is a grand thing to rise in the world. The ambition to do so is the very salt of the earth. It is the parent of all enterprise, and the cause of all improvement.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired, and success achieved.
We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.
