How to Get Ambition
Pump Up Your Ambition and get Motivated!
Are there ways to rev up your ambition? Can you actually ‘Get Ambition’ if you don’t have it?
Here is my take. When someone claims to have no ambition in life or that their ambition is lacking, I immediately question what makes them feel that way? Are they simply burnt out? Maybe uninspired or beaten down? Did they give up on something they were passionate about? An honest look at the problem usually turns up things that are blocking ambition OR there’s a lack of PURPOSE to fuel that ambition.
Let’s face it, if we are afraid to try, if we don’t desire anything, if we don’t believe we can accomplish what we desire, if we don’t believe in ourselves or are too afraid of failure, those feelings can crush your ambition. Sometimes you just need some help or inspiration to get back on track. Maybe you need a tribe to support you and give you encouragement or opportunities to get involved.
There is nothing more energizing than waking up each day with a purpose and something concrete to do to help fire up your ambition.
If you’re suffering from a fear of failure, and that keeps you from taking on challenges that truly excite you, that is a different problem which requires a different solution than other common ambition blockers. Learn more about how to recognize and tackle your fears here: Crush Your Fear
I believe that working on strengthening your purpose and confidence are solid and effective ways to stoke your ambition and motivation. There is no doubt that courage, ambition, purpose and taking action are all very relevant to your success.
For instance, here is how fear masquerades as a lack of ambition. Look at what I call the ‘Comfort Trap.’ Beware of it! It’s easy for humans to convince themselves that playing it safe is really the best course of action because it’s smart and avoids pain.
It’s easy to suppress ambition and passion by telling yourself that taking risks may lead to an imperfect outcome. It’s easy to rationalize our irrational fears, to pretend they are really saving us from inevitable failure.
If you don’t have the ambition and initiative to push through the blockers that keep you from reaching your potential, you will never know what you could have accomplished. Are you happy with just getting by? I hope not and this Tribe is about pushing, overcoming fear so that we can get what we want in life.
I also must point out that if you’re happy with everything in your life, I don’t know why you’re reading this. You’re here because you do have ambition, you just need to find that path to put it into action towards your goals. Thomas Edison once said, “Show me a thoroughly satisfied man and I’ll show you a failure.” We all can benefit from a little challenge now and then.
Don’t forget, with courage can come great achievements, but they are rarely easily won and only the committed will realize them fully.
