As a black cat stares at me I write this short post.
It’s hard for me to stop and realize what I have. I’m making it a point this year to do that more. Not only to appreciate my beautiful surroundings but also to explore more.
I live in one of the most beautiful places in the world (Los Angeles) and consistently find myself indoors. It’s a sin. On this Friday afternoon I’m sitting looking at a passage of water that releases boats into the Pacific Ocean. The weather, a beautiful 68 degrees and the sun still having an hour of light to share with us. The subtle breeze hits my face as hip hop fills my ears.
I mean it’s like Nas said last year, “Life is good”. You might be thinking how any of this has to do with ambition. I’ll get there… :)
The reason I’m even writing today is because of ambition, but everything above is my reflection of my personal state right now. It’s important to know this.
Constantly I hear people say that they see everyone around them making tons of money and they want to do the same. They go on and on about being in a different career, starting a business, or investing in some lucrative stock. However, I’ll see them 3 months, 6 months, a year later and they’re in the same situation. I believe ambition is our greatest ally, but media outlets and many people’s perspective makes it seem like ambition is easily obtainable. Like it’s some tangible item on a shelf at a store.
Ambition has to be a desire. Ambition is a mixture of hard work and determination that isn’t easy. Ambition was instilled in me by my grandfather who worked 30+ years as a longshoreman. It was instilled by my father who worked two full time jobs that put me through college. My mother, who lost it all and fights everyday to smile. My brother, who turned his life around and has a new outlook at life because he was saved. My coaches throughout childhood and as a teenager, who made me challenge myself everyday. I can go on… Go do it, whatever it is you see, want, or know that you’re meant to be doing. Make sure your ambition is high and it will be obtainable. It might not be as easy as a flip of a switch, but we can all make it happen. Peace, MCT *Please excuse my grammar, misspellings, or punctuation. This post was made on my iPhone.
