No Ambition, No Hope

By Brian Tracy  

Sometimes people approach me at my seminars and tell me that they have no ambition. They say they are quite content at their level of income. They make enough to pay their bills and stay out of debt. They ask me what I can do for them if they lack an allconsuming desire to accomplish more than they are already achieving.

Reluctantly, I tell them that there is really no hope for them if they have no ambition. If they don’t have the desire themselves to be more and do better than they are today, there is nothing that anyone else can do for them. I tell them, “Some people are born to be followers and some people are born to be leaders, and I have to assume that you were born to be a follower”. I have never met anyone who particularly likes this response. Too bad. Ambition is essential for great success.
