Short answer… Absolutely!
I have been called tenacious, driven, and passionate toward my dreams. I think they probably meant: STUBBORN.
But for real, I do struggle with letting my foot off the gas and allowing margin in my life. I just hate to see a moment wasted!
Ambition, as a whole, is NOT wrong.
Most women I know think ambition is desirable and sexy- until it comes to their own. Then, suddenly, that inner baby girl jumps in the driver’s seat and pumps the breaks.
When we define the ideal qualities of a “good man” ambition and drive are towards the top of the list. A man who knows what he wants and goes after it makes us feel safe and secure.
So why do we treat ourselves differently?
I am absolutely NOT male-bashing. I love men and give them all the honor and respect they deserve. I own my insecurities, girl. I swallowed those lies and made it my comfort for being too afraid of what people would think of me if I were to succeed.
Can you relate?
Girl, it’s time to stop short-changing yourself. Life is short and God has a plan for you.
What does ambition look like?
💫Not hitting the snooze button and using that extra time before the fam wakes up
💫Doing your own research to learn that new skill- Google and YouTube, baby!
💫Finding a success partner or mentor to give you straight truth and feedback
💫Connecting with other women who “get you” and support your journey
Girl, stop apologizing and making excuses for not having what you want in life. You are a grown woman. Tell your little baby girl self to take a seat and stop running your life.
Are you ready to own your ambition?
