A common thread of individuals who create and live a successful
life is ambition. Ambition, the desire to achieve a particular
goal, while an abstract ideal, can be a tangible process.
Those with ambition will first select a goal. Then, they will
aim toward the goal. And finally they will decide to remain
focused upon the goal until it is achieved.
I once knew a gentleman who desired to be a spiritual teacher.
He often jumped from one new age spiritual fad to the next
hoping to eventually find the spiritual practice that best
suited him. After watching his efforts over a period of years,
I decided to offer a little advice in the form of a gift.
I offered this young man an opportunity to teach at a weekly
workshop I regularly hold. Because the workshop is free to
my clients, I assumed that when I offered this opportunity
to this spiritual hopeful, he would realize that his wisdom
was sought mainly as my way of offering him a hand up and
a way to experience teaching a large group.
To my surprise, this young inexperienced man immediately
began planning his class and preparing his fees. When I realized
my error, I explained to him that I had invited him to teach
in the hopes that he would covet the experience and the opportunity
to meet like minds. Thus, after he realized that his teachings
would go unpaid, he continued to agree to teach a class but
with a bit less zest. Finally, after a few days, he felt prepared
to teach and he showed up at the expected workshop with lesson
in hands. While his ideas were accepted rather slowly by the
group, they did seem to show a patience and tolerance of getting
to know him better. This young man, a spiritual hopeful on
his way to a new path, left the group that night after giving
his new students an assignment and promising to come back
to review the outcome of the given lessons.
recognized that the students had been slow to warm to him,
but knew through experience that all students take their time
when hearing and accepting a new teacher. In addition, I knew
that the students, always kind in their nature, would eventually
accept and enjoy him. Yet later, and to my surprise, this
young man revealed to me that he was not interested in returning
to complete his teachings. He shared that he had not received
the immediate results that he wished and as I listened to
his words, I suspected that he was also a bit disgruntled
about not receiving payment.
I considered sharing my own opinion and hard learned lessons
with him; one must first gain credibility before expecting
to be paid. When the teacher is ready, yes, the students will
come. And they will be willing to support the teacher when
the teacher has earned their trust. Also, students are often
shy and slow to openly accept a stranger. The stranger, rather
he be a spiritual teacher or not, must take time, persist
and remain focused upon his goal. If he truly is teaching
a spiritual lesson, the students will hear the spiritual truth
and they will grow comfortable.
But, I did not share my opinion. I simply said good bye to
this struggling young man. Instead of remaining aimed at his
goal, my young spiritual hopeful, moved on to his next spiritual
gig, assuming that this one like many others was not for him.
And, I assume that he will find many other spiritual avenues
that will not work just perfectly, until her learns the lesson
True ambition, in a tangible form, is the patience of individuals
who remain involved even when others beings fall away or lose
interest. True ambition, in a tangible form, is the ability
to persist and continue to work even when others are not listening,
paying, applauding or even agreeing. And last of all, true
ambition, in a tangible form, is continuing to physically
do when all the others are sitting back and only thinking
or talking about their spiritual plans. It is the actually
doing and carrying out of ones goals that cultivates true
and tangible ambition.
If you find that you have attempted to achieve particular
goals and they have not lead toward success……
1. Establish a deep connection with your higher power and
inner self and become certain of your goal.
2. Begin a physical list, writing down the actual steps you
must take to achieve your goal.
3. Begin physically doing that which brings you closer to
4. Continue to do and do and do.
