Ambition is the Key to Your Personal Power

Jan 25, 2008
People who are in their personal power often affect others without trying. As leaders, they empower rather than control. -Joan Sotkin

What are your dreams, your hopes, and your desires? Are they in harmony with your personal ambition to improve your life? Whether your goal is to be a fashion designer, a corporate vice-president, or the owner of a franchise, as a total person, you must always aim for improvement. For greater personal power, here are seven ambitions that are worthy of attaining:


What are you passionate about? What excites you? Are you an enthusiastic person? The mental vision you hold about yourself, the way you think, the dreams you wish to turn into reality, and the way you view life all make up your positive attitude. Creating and maintaining a positive attitude contributes to your self-image and serves as a worthy purpose.


Have you already made your career choice? Do you already own your own business? Is it the best choice for you? Are you putting all of your creative skills to worthy causes? Do you have an active plan for reaching your career or business goals? With positive, mental and spiritual energy, you'll have a strong cushion of faith to fall back on when life hands you a challenge.


Develop projects that will inspire you. Direct your thoughts on any behavior that enhances your personal or business growth. Make better choices that will lead you to fulfill your goals. For example, it may help to periodically review or identify your needs, skills, and goals. And as soon as you condition your mind to develop positive, mental and spiritual energy, you won't have any problem creating good feelings about yourself or your life.


In stressful situations, strength and energy is vital for positive results. Thinking, feeling and acting positively builds your self-image and develops your power to think clearly. Inner strength gives you the power to handle the many hassles or stresses in both your business and personal life.


You can turn impossibilities into realities by visualizing what you want to happen, then acting to make it come true. See yourself already there and your goal as already accomplished. The same applies when you are afraid to attempt a tough project, or have to deal with a negative situation. Fear, worry and negative thinking disappear when you visualize a positive outcome.


Keep thinking: You can get whatever it is you want, if you believe that you can.
Give your subconscious mind positive goals and successful images to work with, then watch what happens when you set your heart to accomplishing what you want.


Improve your physical, mental, and emotional strengths by not dwelling on your weaknesses. Try not to hold resentments toward anyone or anything. Learn to see the other person's view. To maximize your strengths, remember your successes, and the things you have done well. And remember to thank God for all that you have and all that is to come.

Ambition then is the power to gain and enlarge your knowledge, your creative skills, and your positive spirit. Ambition increases your positive energy level. Remember: negative thinking burns physical energy three times faster then positive thinking. With practice, it always becomes easier to do.

Personal power can only be achieved by what you accomplish. Supply your thoughts and your life with positive energy. Personal power comes from self-discovery, self-improvement and self-esteem. Keeping your mind filled with positive visions not only shapes your image, others are affected by your positive attitude. This is your personal power.

So, what are your ambitions?
