Achieving Ambitions

Extracts from this document...


I?m sure everybody in this room as failed once, right? I have failed many, many times, and I see absolutely no shame in saying that, because why should we feel any embarrassment in admitting that we attempted to achieve success? At the very least we tried, for the worst failure of all is the failure to try. That is the first rule towards achieving your ambitions. Moving past the ?no, I just can?t.? attitude and realizing that you can. That the possibility is there, and no matter how minute that chance is, the fact that it is present is all you really need. In the words of Beth Hamilton, ?You don?t need easy, you just need possible?. You need to commit yourself to achieving it, realize that your fate is in your hands, and that the choices you made yesterday and what brought you where you are today. Despite the fact you cannot erase yesterdays mistakes, you have full power over your future. ...read more.


Realize that the possibility of success has not been crushed by a simple setback on the way. Channel this disappointment into your determination to succeed, because the importance lies not in how long you stay on the ground for, but in whether you will get back up at all. Everybody will have a moment of weakness. A moment where sadness deep inside your soul threatens your determination, questions your faith in yourself, and causes you to doubt your ambitions. A broken heart is blind, it is hard to see when doubt clouds your line of sight, and I do not want anybody throw away your life believing you are salvaging it. When your heart aches stop trying anyway, to find comfort in the life you have now, when it begs to stop caring, to simply water down the passion burning within you, you must tell your heart that there will be blips along the way to success, that the present discomfort is insignificant when compared to the joy of achieving your ambition. ...read more.


That Walt Disney fired for having no creativity, told that he lacked imagination and had no good ideas. Embrace the obstacles that come across your way, for they are there for you to prove your worth- they are not there to stop you, but are there to show you and show the world how much you are willing to fight for what you want. All these setbacks amount to are a few bruises on your heart, but as long as the determination never wilts, you can do anything you set your heart to. In life, everything happens for a reason, and beginning with a failure does not mean you will always fail. Keep faith wrapped around your heart to keep it from falling apart, and remember that the bitter taste of failure simply makes the taste of success even sweeter. The road to achieving ambitions is fraught with difficulty?but I am determined- I challenge you. Join me on the road to achieving our ambitions, and I?ll race you to the good life. ...read more.
