Many people strive to be ambitious and talk about being ambitious but lack the drive to actually turn there words into actions. The term is thrown around way too loosely. Hundreds of kids, teenagers and even adults set lofty goals for achievement but they aren’t willing to take the necessary steps forward to accomplish them.
I’ve witnessed this more then a few times with peoples’ hoop dreams. Everyone wants to say that they will be or want to be the next Kobe Bryant, yet few of them were willing to devote themselves enough to the craft to do so. Kids think they can instantly be good at basketball because they can press the X button to shoot with Kobe in 2k11.
Which leads me to believe that the concept of hard work allowing you to accomplish anything is either fading from a generation’s mind or not being instilled in the first place. We now live in an age where instant gratification is everything, if we seek knowledge all we need to do is pick up a smart phone and google it. Unfortunately there isn’t a site you can go to that will instantly allow you to do an in-n-out between the legs pull up from 15ft, believe me if there was I would have found it already. Unfortunately (fortunately) I had to spend hours upon hours in the gym refining my skills and I’m not even half the player I want to become.
Ambition is something that you prove and show not just something you talk about. You have to own your so called ambition if you really have it, it is truly a part of you. So for those of you reading this the real question is, is it in you?
