Ever wondered what makes some people succeed almost effortlessly, while others continuously fail? First of all, successful people think bigger by raising the bar higher and moving away from accepting low standards. Successful people also have a high internal drive to succeed, which allows persistence to remain.
We could say that what drives someone to succeed is ambition. Yet if ambition is the answer to success we might also ask, “What drives someone to become more ambitious?”
“Is ambition something a person learns or is it something a person is born with?” Anyone can learn to become more ambitious if it’s wanted bad enough. Anyone can create an internal drive that moves us to become more ambitious. Therefore, anyone can also become more passionate and motivated by true desires.
So, what’s the difference?
A person has to want success bad enough to move beyond the here and now to a place of a future own vision, of making it on our own. Someone must desire change bad enough to take different actions to move to a different place with better results.
Successful people make success look effortless and without struggle.
Why? How? Partly because we don’t give up, but stay the course, despite obstacles, challenges, and setbacks. Because we want success bad enough to take different action.
