Adverse Ambition The crazy thing about ambition is that it’s a double-edged sword. Ambition is filled with energy and excitement because you’ve seen something that you want, endorphins have become activated and you’ve put everything you have into achieving this new-found concept of success. Don’t get me wrong I consider myself to be highly ambitious and I like to set goals and achieve them but if the “goals” are not in line with the overall purpose that God has designed for you, you’ll be chasing a dangling carrot hoping one day to finally get a bite. We all have a self-concept that we’ve developed.
