Explore the value of Ambition
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.
Moderation is the feebleness and sloth of the soul, whereas ambition is the warmth and activity of it.
François Duc De La Rochefoucauld
Faith is daring to put your dream to the test. It is better to try to do something and fail than to try to do nothing and succeed.
Robert H. Schuller
If one advances confidently in the direction of one's dreams, and endeavors to live the life which one has imagined, one will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
Henry David Thoreau
I've learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions and not on our circumstances.
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.
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.
