How Lack Of Focus, Goals and Self Worth Can Sabotage Your Ambitions.
What are your Ambitions?
What is the definition of Ambition?
Do Your have the self belief and motivation to succeed? Do you just know without a doubt that you will SUCCEED?
Do you know what motivates you and gets you going and what motivates other people?
Are your ambitions equal to your motivation to get things done?
What are your goals, dreams and hopes and are they equal in size to the work ethic and personal value that you hold for yourself?
These are just a few questions to ask yourself when you are feeling like your are not meeting your personal goals, needs and reaching the level of success or personal happiness that you dream of.
“What Truly are My Ambitions? What really Really Makes Me Tick?”
8 questions you should ask to yourself: a preparation to self-improvement and focus on building up your ambitions.
Be all you can be! I often see myself as somewhat contented with my life the way things are, but of course it’s hard to think of anything else when where are real issues to be discussed.
Still I aspire for something deeper and more meaningful.
So we’re all pelted with problems. Honestly there shouldn’t even be a second thought when we consider the life path of becoming all we ought to be. Aspirations and ambitions as kids should continue to live within us as long as we could hold on to them and our dreams.
1. What do I really want?
The question of the ages. So many things you want to do with your life and so little time to even go about during the day.
Finding something that you are good at can help realize that small step towards improvement. Diligence is the key to know that it is worth it.
2. Should I really change?
Today’s generation has taken another level of redefining ‘self’, or at least that’s what the teens are saying. It’s more about tying to live your true and real self today at a younger age than ever before. But this new found Life Freedom and Empowerment of young people through ease of Knowledge online, complete transparency and through Social Media has also branded a “The world owes me something attitude as well.” Does this lend to lack of ambition or inspire to move forward into the endless possibilities that anything can be done, any dream can be achieved. I believe the majority of young people and adults alike have become inspired by the possibility that success can be achieved easier, through different channels than ever before because of the Internet. As a result, this generation has had an increase in ambitions. Now, is there a work ethic to achieve those ambitions?
3. Am I comfortable with what I’m doing?
Are you happy to stay inside the protection and ease of your comfort zone? Are you happy to remain still, unchanged and without growth and challenge?
4. Have I done enough for myself?
Have you, or is there something more you want to do? Discontentment in every aspect can be dangerous in large doses, but in small amounts you’ll be able to see and do stuff you could never imagine doing.
5. Am I happy at where I am today?
Simply look deep? Are you fulfilled? Do you desire more?
6. How much could I have?
I suppose in this case there is no such things on having things too much or too little, but it’s more on how badly you really need it. If you would like to have lots of money, there’s no denying that, but the question is that how much are you willing to work for it?
7. What motivates me?
What motivates you? The difficult part here might be choosing the thing that makes you happiest and learning how to achieve it.
8. What Really Makes You Tick?
So? What really makes you tick? You can be just about anything you always wanted to be, but to realize that attaining something that may seem very difficult is already giving up before you even start that journey. Always remember, that self-improvement is not just about the physical or philosophical change you have to undergo, but it’s about that internal, intrinsic desire within you.
Are your lack of ambitions getting you down? Remember…. Impossible is Just a Word.
Everyone, at some point of his or her life, has dreamed of being somebody special, somebody big. Who hasn’t fantasized about being the one who hits the game-winning homer? Who hasn’t dreamed of being the homecoming queen? And how many times have we dreamed of being rich, or successful, or happy with our relationships?
Often, we dream big dreams and have great aspirationsand ambitions. Unfortunately, our dreams remain just that – dreams. And our aspirations easily collect dust in our attic.
This is a sad turn of events in our life. Instead of experiencing exciting adventures in self actualization, we get caught up in the humdrum of living from day-to-day just barely existing.
But you know what? Life could be so much better, if only we learned to aim higher.
The most common problem in having lack of ambitions and the to setting goals is the word impossible. Most people get hung up thinking I can’t do this. It’s too hard. It’s too impossible. No one can do this.
However, if everyone thought that, there would be no inventions, no innovations, and no breakthroughs in human accomplishment.
Remember that scientists were baffled when they took a look at the humble bumblebee. Theoretically, they said, it was impossible for the bumblebee to fly. Unfortunately for the bumble, bee no one has told it so. So fly it does.
On the other hand, some people suffer from dreaming totally outrageous dreams and not acting on them. The result? Broken dreams, and tattered aspirations.
If you limit yourself with self-doubt, and self-limiting assumptions, you will never be able to break past what you deem impossible. If you reach too far out into the sky without working towards your goal, you will find yourself clinging on to the impossible dream.
Try this exercise:
- Take a piece of paper and write down some goals in your life.
- Under one header, list down things ‘you know you can do’.
- Under another header, write the things ‘you might be able to do.’
- And under one more, list the things that that are ‘impossible for you to do.’
- Now look at all the headers strive every day to accomplish the goals that are under things ‘you know you can do’.
- Check them when you are able to accomplish them.
- As you slowly are able to check all of your goals under that heading, try accomplishing the goals under the other header-the one that reads ‘you might be able to do.’
- As of the items you wrote under things I could do are accomplished, you can move the goals that are under things that are ‘impossible for you to do’ to the list of things ‘you might be able to do.’
As you iterate through this process, you will find out that the goals you thought were impossible become easier to accomplish. And the impossible begin to seem possible after all.
You see, the technique here is not to limit your imagination. It is to aim high, stop focusing on lack of ambitions, and start working towards that goal little by little. However, it also is unwise to set a goal that is truly unrealistic.
Those who just dream towards a goal without working hard end up disappointed and disillusioned.
On the other hand, if you told someone a hundred years ago that it was possible for man to be on the moon, they would laugh at you. If you had told them that you could send mail from here to the other side of the world in a few seconds, they would say you were out of your mind. But, through sheer desire and perseverance, these impossible dreams are now realities.
Thomas Edison once said that genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. Nothing could be truer. For one to accomplish his or her dreams, there has to be had work and discipline. But take note that that 1% has to be a think-big dream, and not some easily accomplished one.
Ask any gym rat and he or she will tell you that there can be no gains unless you are put out of your comfort zone. Remember the saying, “No pain, no gain”? That is as true as it can be.
So dream on, my friends!
Don’t get caught up with your perceived limitations and lack of ambitions.
Think big and work hard to attain those dreams.
As you step up the ladder of progress, you will just about find out that the impossible has just become a little bit more possible.
