    Driven Ambition

    Driven Ambition

    Ambition derives from the Latin ambitio, ‘a going around (to solicit votes)’, and, by extension, ‘a striving for honour, recognition, and preferment’. It can be defined as a striving for some kind of achievement or distinction, and involves, first, the desire for achievement, and, second, the motivation and determination to strive for its attainment even in the face of adversity and failure. To be ambitious is to achieve first and foremost not for the sake of achievement itself (which is to be high-reaching) but for the sake of distinguishing ourselves from other people. Were we the last person on earth, to be ambitious would make little or no sense.

    Ambition is often spoken of in the same breath as hope, as in ‘hopes and ambitions’. Hope is the desire for something to happen combined with an anticipation of it happening. In contrast, ambition is the desire for achievement or distinction combined with the willingness to strive for its achievement. Generally speaking, ambition is more self-referential and more self-reliant than hope. The opposite of hope is fear, hopelessness, or despair; the opposite of ambition is simply lack of ambition, which is not in itself a negative state.

    Ambition is sometimes thought of as a form of greed, or the acceptable face of greed, which can be defined as the excessive desire for more than is needed or deserved, not for the greater good but for one’s own selfish interest. Greed reduces our focus to the pursuit of its object. Ambition, in contrast, is more flexible and far-reaching, and can enable us to flourish and contribute to the flourishing of others. Ultimately, the difference between greed and ambition may simply be one of emphasis, with greed being reductive and destructive, and ambition expansive and adaptive.

    Life After Depression x2 *recorded 2011!

    I’m hitting a point in life where I’m going back and looking at who I have become. As a child I would always look for what made me, me. What occurrences in culture and my immediate environment led to, Scintillating. In 2011, I was 25 years old, the top banker in my region, and looking at the meaning of life. God was, for me, where I found life’s meaning. Also during this time, I had already traveled heavily throughout the United States, lived on my own and supported myself, but lacked true relationships and an understanding of self.

    Today, I’ve made the decision to begin going back and seeing who I’ve become and the events or occurrences that have challenged me to becomes me. Funny thing, this is the second time in my life leaving Corporate America...feels great! Now for some more personal growth...

    To Live is To Die

    To Live is To Die

    As leaders and those who influence our personal community, we must understand servant leadership, the concept of planting seeds, and the necessity to be selfless.

    Often times, we confuse leadership with dictatorship. A dictator barks out orders and does not take into account the wants and needs of others. A servant leader is the complete opposite. A servant leader works tirelessly to develop his or her people and is focused on what they can do for others.
