Oh, the embarrassment… my first tweet

On the other hand, that’s what I always do when something’s not working right — I check Twitter to see if others are sharing the misery.

Ambition Quotes: “Without ambition one starts nothing…”

ambition quotes

Are you ambitious? Ambition’s defined as: a strong desire to do or to achieve something, typically requiring determination and hard work.

If you’re ambitious be proud of it. Admit it, especially if you’re a woman:

 Why are so many of us so ambivalent about our own ambition? It’s like The Scarlet Letter where we are ashamed to wear the “A” word for ambition.  Many of us are afraid to be branded ambitious because we won’t be liked.

One of my favorite ambition quotes from Ralph Waldo Emerson: “Without ambition one starts nothing. Without work one finishes nothing. The prize will not be sent to you. You have to win it.”

Get out there and win. :-)
