Learning ambition

You have more potential than you think. You’re capable of more than you realize.

How do you expand your understanding of what you can do? You give yourself an ambitious challenge.

What would you like to do, or be, to have, or experience, that you never thought you could do? You’ll never know for sure unless you give it a shot.

Once you’ve made the commitment and are underway, your assumption is likely to change. Maybe you’ll get all the way there, maybe only part of the way.

Yet it’s almost certain that you’ll make at least some amount of progress. And that’s a whole lot better than doing nothing.

Ambition is a skill you can teach yourself. Go ahead and see how much you can learn.

— Ralph Marston
