In one of my previous jobs, my manager once asked me "What is your ambition? What is that you want to achieve?"
To be honest, I were sort of dumbstruck. All I knew was that I want to be successful.
I thought over it and now I have concluded that my ambition is to "Be Happy". I realized that this simple ambition includes everything - family, friends, success, money, love, everything.
What is your ambition btw?
To be a great movie maker
To be a great author
To be a great leader
To be a great father
To be a great lover
Oh vow.. moviemaker... that sounds really interesting... !!
All the best saleheen...
I'd like to finish my novel and survive for another 30 years so that I can see my grands grow up and have kids!
I don't have any ambition.
My goal is to survive reasonably intact and I believe that this is a biological imperative. Most animals have it.
I make do with what I have and I believe that an attitude of gratitude pretty much makes one happy with whatever one has.
I don't believe it's possible to have everything and I think an awful lot of people are very unhappy with what they've got because it's never occurred to them that they already have an awful lot to be thankful for.
That's why when people face death they come back changed. It's because in that moment they realized what was important.
What's important is simply being grateful for what one already has and valuing all the people around one. Think how terrible it would be to be alone on earth with no one to speak to.
Still figuring this out myself, but I DO know, I want to:
1. Be happy.
2. Be a writer.
3. Make a difference.
I don't have any rigid ambitions. All I do is make sure I have money and have fun doing it, which keeps me happy.
Hmm... yes, it wouldn't hurt to have a little more money for myself...
I wrote about that recently in a hub I published in dedication to my grandfather.
Before he passed, when I would ask him if needed anything, he would say, "How bout a barrel of fifties..."
Now that's he gone, and I've grown so much, not just from losing him but so many other "things"... I've come to know a barrel of fifties isn't really what matters anymore.
Hey KristenGrace, sorry for loss of your grandfather. It's good to learn things from your elders and implement them in your life.. !!
I wish you best of wishes to be successful and happy... GOD bless you...
Yeah it will be great to make lots of money and spend with my family and friends... I will be happy
Let's say you have all the success in the world, a great job, your mate, friends, recognition, money, a beautiful home... what's missing?
I second that motion!
My ambition is to be happy too let's strive for happiness!!
Ambition is a dream with a V8 engine -
With this definition, I think I'd have to say my ambition is to create. Usually through writing.

I have been on the "down low" on what I have been doing here. However, a member of my family did not seem to believe me. Basically, saying you can not go anywhere with this. Well, my moral is at an all time low now. Everyone here is great, but a lot of people prob would not believe me...

Why do we equate happiness with money?
