Ambition is a motherfucker
It comes equipped with the necessity of failure.
Day after day, year after year.
Ambition comes with a punch to the gut, a kick to the nuts, on a daily basis.
And if you’re ambitious, you need to be OK with that.
Because you have your sights set higher than your peers.
You want to accomplish more than most.
And that means you’ll fall flat on your face more often than you’ll reach those heights.
This is why Rocky’s epic speech from Rocky Balboa gives people like us chills.
Because the idea of life hauling off and cracking us in the face, knocking us on our back, dizzy and unsure what to do next, is so relate-able.
And knowing that it’s necessary- a right of passage- is soothing.
So we can wake up tomorrow, lace our shoes up a little tighter, stand a little taller, and do it all again.
