Students always want to get in a good school. When they make it, they keep going to achieve better result at school. A business man can make 100 bucks today but by tomorrow he would like to earn 1000 bucks. I am sure that many of us are wonder why Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet can be the billionaire. So what is all of that about? What is the component that makes people want to do better, be successful? We are talking about ambition. And now I am going to show you how do ambition affect people on their life.
There are many definitions of ambition. It depends on the way people think of it. ww. oxfordictionaries. com has defined ambition as a strong desire to do or achieve something. Now let take a look about how the famous people relate to ambition. Elvis Presley – the King of Rock and Roll said that: ‘’ Ambition is a dream with V8 engine“. Can you imagine that: ‘’ A dream with V8 engine“, it is likes an Audi A8 with full petrol drive in the freeway with no barrier. The velocity is extremely strong. You probably wonder what is about Elvis Presley. Elvis had a difficult life when he was young. So he found music as a big comfort to get him happy.
He listened to music in church and even taught himself how to play the church piano. He listened to radio whenever he could and bought records, listened to a wider variety of music. His parents wanted him to become a doctor or an engineer but Elvis decided to pursue his dream which is become a singer. By the time Elvis graduated from high school, he could sing in various styles. On June 6, 1954 Elvis received a call from Sun Records. He quickly became a star. His career went brightly from there. As you can see Elvis can be that successful is because of his effort and ambition.
Why do people walk down a busy city street ignoring others and not talking? Why are they ignorant to the homeless asking for change just to survive? And why do cross walk signs become life savers? I can tell you what's wrong with these people, music. Music works wonders for anyone and everyone. There is no way around music. It is everywhere and playing at all times. From people blasting music with ...
I am going to give you another example. We all know Ho Chi Minh by history. A little about him is showed by the article following www. time. com/time/magazine/article/09171,988162,00 Ho Chi Minh is the great leader of Viet Nam. He wanted to do everything to free his nation from being invaded even sacrifice himself. Ho Chi Minh went around the world to France, Russia, China … with no money in his pocket. He worked on free hand to live with only one goal that is learn from the advanced of these countries. Even be arrested but it mean nothing to my great leader.
He would never quit. His dream about the nation of freedom and the love for the country lead him to the brilliant success. He will be ever so alive. Start thinking about ambition now and use it as the guider to lead you to success. Ambition is the key to become a famous person. Ambition needs to go with action, plan. In the novel ‘’ Of Mice and Men’’ written by John Steinbeck, Lennie and George are the main characters. They have ambition, a dream, a goal: own a small ranch and get an easy life but no plan, no real action so eventually they fail.
You probably know ‘’ Doctor Phil Show’’. ‘’ A plan, a goal, a destination, an action an ambition ’’ are these reasons for successful which the man mentions about. “Plan, action” is something that a person should really consider about. Bryant H. McGill also stated that:’’ Ambition is not what a man would do, but what a man does, for ambition without action is fantasy’’. You have dream, you have to work hard to get it. Money will not just come to you for free, a fancy car will not just appear in a second, a castle would not just show up in front of you.
You get to do your best to reach it. Without action and plan, ambition becomes useless. Everything has both negative and positive aspect. So is ambition. Ambition is usually linked with some negative characteristics: greed, intolerance and drive for power. Greed exists inside every person. A man with ambition would have larger greed. In the movie Wall Street directed by Oliver Stone, the character Gorden Gecko said that greed was good: There was no limit to how much money you could make or how big a company could get. Ambition is also associated with ruthlessness.
Ambition Before I could really start to write about ambition, I had to ask myself what ambition really was. What causes people to be ambitious, and what are the advantages and disadvantages of being an ambitious person? At first, I must admit it was fairly difficult to comprehend. But I found it to all come together when I relates it to another kind of person or group of people - dreamers. When I ...
Some people don’t care if they hurt others. The only thing they care about is get what they want. To reach the goal by any price, block out human feeling, friendship, love… in the end the loneliness is waiting for you. In addition, Applied Psychology, ambitious people are barely happier than less ambitious people. ‘’If ambition have its positive effects and in terms of career success it certainly seems that it does, our study also suggest that it carries with some cost’’, said Timothy Judge, a professor of management at the university of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of business. ’
Despite their many accomplishments, ambitious people are only slightly happier than their less – ambitious counter parts, and they actually live somewhat shorter lives’’. Judge tracked 717 high – ability people over seven decades, measuring ambition during all phases of their lives. The individuals’ education levels ranged from Ivy League schools to high school diplomas. Like I said: everything has their negative aspects but you should be the one who know which is wrong and what is the right thing to do. Don’t let anything take over you rather than yourself.
These negative aspects should not stop us from being ambitious. Be ambitious means that you can be much better. You can easily deal with the hard situation, always find the way around to overcome it. That is how ambition teaches us adaptable. Being stable in front of everything, never doubt, never give up and know how to get up on your own after falling is one more lesson about resilience that ambition teach us. Be ambitious not mean do things only for yourself. It could mean by achieving thing for your country.
Dance Hussein – a sprinter on Iraq ‘ s national track and field team has said: ‘’As long as I have ambition, maybe I can achieve something for my country’’. Bill Gates, Steve Jobs … are these great men that I have mentioned above. Bill Gates is the chairman of Microsoft and he has a net worth about 61 billion. Second one is Warren Buffett. He also has the net worth about 46 billion. How could they make that huge of fortune? I think you all know the answer. One more thing I want to tell ‘’Nelson, the great British admiral, wanted to become a naval hero.
