We have the fire, pursuing it is a problem. At one stage we are certain; this is how I want it to be. At another stage we don’t know what we want anymore, the fire has quenched.
Pursuing Ambition is no easy task. Every new year people list out resolutions, this is what I will do this is what I will achieve, am going to be really focused, I won’t let anything distract me. In the next four months this year will be gone forever, you haven’t started out what you listed out. Some did not even lay hands on it, some started but got distracted. You keep friends who see your ambition as a foolish idea, they make you quit. You fail to realize that a wise idea is foolish at the hearing of fools. We have naysayers lying around; they are mostly people very close to you. Your partner, parents, siblings, friends etc, they always tell you, you are never good enough; it’s too difficult, find something easier and such demoralizing speeches.
SOME REASONS WHY WE CAN NOT PURSUE OUR AMBITION.
* Negative thoughts.
Most people fill their minds with negative thoughts, like; I don’t think I can do this, I am not smart enough, or probably you didn’t do something well and you get compliments like “you will never be good enough, can’t you see you don’t belong here.
*THE RELATIONSHIP WE KEEP.
We should always be careful of the relationship we keep. Any relationship that would distract you from your ambition should be destroyed. The people we hang around with often determine if you would continue your vision or stop. If you hang around people with no vision often, your zeal dies. Iron sharpens Iron, if you are iron and your friend or partner is not, certainly you would rust.
* YOU ARE LAZY.
* YOU DISTRACT YOURSELF.
You spend all day on social media, playing games, watching movies and you forget you have a goal to reach. You forget people won’t help you if they are gaining nothing from you, you have to pursue your ambition and make things right.
* FEAR OF FAILURE.
Most people don’t bother pursuing their ambition because they fear failure. Failure is just the process.
