Ambition or Having Enough ?

  • Affluence & Wealth Creation
  • Coaching and Mentoring
  • Professional Speaking and Training
  • Freelance Consulting
  • Influence Marketing
  • Personal Evolution

These are all the aspects on the business side of what I do.

I’ve consistently shown that I can grow a 6-figure business from scratch, with a zero-standing start by just putting in a ton of work. I know how to get the marketing right, the advertising right, the product pricing right and how to hustle and work hard and smart. I know how to delivery a world class product or service.

But there is one thing I love more than growing any business, it’s having a lifestyle where I can do what I want to do when I want to do it. This also means moving away from a particular business if I don’t feel it continues to serve my needs, or to pivot the company direction if I feel that it’s attracting the wrong audience or the wrong demographic.

Remember, you get what you focus on, so when I consider what type of people I most want to spend time with and service, I am very clear on this – namely, people who are ambitious. Now, personally I though that everyone has ambition. Why wouldn’t you? Then I came across this post:

“Most people die at 25, but we don’t get around to burying them until they’re 75. What do we mean by that? By about 25 years old, life has taken its toll. Most people spend their late teens and early twenties ambitious and hungry to conquer those dreams and goals with no care about the external factors. Then they get struck with some heartache, some embarrassment, some failure, some bumps and bruises along the way OR they end up becoming another victim of the system and decide to give up. They then spend their whole life wondering what would have happened.

Something clicked. I started to ask around about ambition. Family first, then friends and colleagues, then with clients and students and finally on social networks. It was black and white. You were either ambitious or you weren’t, and if you were not, you probably have lost something in your 20’s.  I think we can all relate to this at some level, but the question is what you do about it when you lose the fire or the passion.

For me, I’ve done so many things over the past 20 years looking for that thing that lights my fire and inspires people – I have worked in many places from University Lecturer to Start-up founder, from Yogi to Master Coach Trainer, from Entrepreneur to Business Owner, from Musician to Professional Speaker.  What I’ve realise when I read across the boundaries of all of these it’s people – who are ambitious too. You see, working with someone who is not ambitious is like pulling teeth. Don’t get me wrong – I’ve done my time helping people getting from zero to one, but there is a much longer journey from one to infinity and beyond (with apologies to Buzz Lightyear). Ambition. It’s real, it’s raw, it’s fire, it’s passion, it’s influence, it’s teaching and sharing, it’s that constant desire to seek out Mastery and the Secrets to Life and living, it’s being human. Everyone Should be doing everything within their power and influence to find that passion, that ambition. It’s not just a nice to have. It’s a question of whether you are thriving  and reaching for the stars.

Here is my takeaway: Aim higher.
