There is Nothing Wrong in Being Ambitious, but Expectation May Hurt you

There is a lot of discovery working with lots of people to achieve the best out of their life. In most cases those who believe in gradually working toward their desire have peace of mind. They take care of the present; enjoy the moment without letting go of the future with subtle.

The first assignment to attain your desire is discovery. It is unreasonable to think/say, I just want or have to be rich instead of asking what to do in other to improve your financial status.


Desperation is the beginning of depression for those who are not criminal at heart. That is what expectation is all about. Having the sense of entitlement and when you are unable to get it, you become impatient resulting to negative means of achieving it based on your temperament which generate problem that further makes it impossible to achieve what you want. If you are fortunate, you can personally retract or with the help of people close to you or seeking professional help. In most cases, if the damaged caused is severe no matter how short the period of occurrence, it will keep hunting you for a long time forcing you to abandon your ambition.




We are all ambitious, since we all want to achieve or become this or that. What makes the difference is the level of our ambition. I have found out that those who are highly ambitious have a high tendency of been desperate. It is the reason why they seems to have a lot of setback at the initial stage of their career life compare to those who are mild ambitious.

There are other traits of highly ambitious people that supersede the negative narration above. Highly ambitious people are adventurous in nature, they are builder and innovator. In other word, they make the modern world possible. That is the reason they failed more without given up. They always have strong believed in their idea and cause. If you see someone who give up on a cause, such person is never a highly ambitious person. Such people are categories as mild or low ambitious persons.

While the highly ambitious people believe in taking massive action working hard towards achieving their desire, the mild ambitious ones take it easier. As for the low ambitious, they are high in expectation, they never believe in achieving things on their own, that responsibility belongs to someone. Whenever they need something, that person should or must give them, they are entitle to it

There is no need in setting the bar too high if your thought is to jump over it. But if you plan to climb it a step after another, you will be at the peak in no time without getting hurt.

In my book, “My Dream Come True”, I wrote: 
The natural law of achievement in whatever area of endeavour follow a sequential order of;
  • Have a dream
  • Set a goal
  • Create a plan
  • Take action
And I add to it;
  • Remain focused with lot of persistence and perseverance.
The journey of our life come with unknown destination, but it is our duty to try as much as possible to sketch out the map to reach our desired destination. In other words, we determine our destination on the journey of life and we should do this without violating the right of our fellow men. Meanwhile anyone who left this decision to someone else will experience and remain unfulfilled.




Napoleon Hill is one of the few experts of achievement who have discuss extensively on the subject of desire in his popular book “Think and Grow Rich” which is one of his self help books. Below are few quote extracted from his books on desire and achievement.

  •  “Whatever your mind can conceive and believe it can achieve.”
  • “The starting point of all achievement is desire.”
  • “Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle.”
  • “Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence will plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another.”
  • “A goal is a dream with a deadline.”
  • “Don’t wait. The time will never be just right.”
  • “If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.”
  • “When your desires are strong enough you will appear to possess superhuman powers to achieve.”
  • “Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.”
  • “It takes half your life before you discover life is a do-it-yourself project.” 
The reason why 90% of the world population fall in the poor and middle class categories is as a result of no or low ambition with high expectation. The moment they are able to meet their basic needs, they feel complacent forgetting that need to save and invest for the future.

I wish I could pick one after the other for analysis Napoleon Hill’s quote as stated above but that will take too long but I am sure you will understand clearly reading it over and over again. If you need a help, never hesitate to as via comment below.
