“Ambition is the path to success. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in.”
Many people have different ambitions in life so the word ambition would have different definitions, depending on whom you ask. To me ambition is an urge desire to achieve your goals or succeed. Ambition leads you to ...view middle of the document...
You must have the ability and desire to accomplish your goal. But ambition requires hard work. You must do your best and put in all your time and effort. If you don't have that ambition, you won't succeed or accomplish your goal.
1.3.2 Example of Constructive Ambition
In one of the universities in Colombia, one of the students attended a math lecture. He sat in the back of the hall and slept quietly. At the end of the lecture, he woke up on the students’ voices leaving the hall. Before leaving, he noticed that the professor has written two mathematical problems on the white board. Therefore, he wrote them down in his notebook and left the hall.
When he came back home, he started solving those problems. They were very hard. Therefore, he went to the university's library, picked up some references and started working them out again. After 4 days, he was able to solve the first problem but he was feeling very angry with his professor for giving them such a hard assignment.
In the next lecture, the professor did not ask about the assignment, he was very surprised about that. Therefore, he went up to the professor and told him that the first problem took him 4 days and 4 pages to solve it. The professor was very surprised; he told the student that he did not give any assignments.
The two problems that the doctor wrote on the white board, was an example of the mathematical problems, which the greatest scientist could not work out at all.
As we saw in this case, ambition is as an eager or strong desire to achieve something, such as the eagerness to learn and explore the unattainable. Every human being needs ambition to succeed in life. It is the driving force in life, which motivates us to compete and be the best. A person without ambition is like a boat without a rudder. Ambition is the backbone of this world as it led many great men throughout history to extravagant achievements. Ambition is a good character if utilized correctly. Without ambition, life will be boring, monotonous and uninteresting.
the student was motivated by his ambition to solve the problem; as mentioned earlier that ambition is eager or strong desire to achieve something, he's ambition here was to solve the question although it took him humongous effort and time. The solution of this problem with its four pages is still exhibited there in this university.
