A strongly worded letter to vaulting ambition

Dear Vaulting ambition,
You wield tremendous power
But devilish power;
You command power to break bounds
In human mind and heart;
Your desire to win at all cost,
Does push you to extremes;
Everything you are poised to sacrifice;
And that makes you a danger
To humanity and society;
You have been the cause
Of untold destruction both life
And property;
Look at the chaos everywhere;
Instability;
Violence;
Lies that spread like wild fire;
We deny you taking captive
Of human hearts;
Because you turn them into devils;
If any heart you do occupy,
Take your leave at once
And never show your ugly face again.
Yours sincerely,
We, the people.

“I will not stop expressing a cautioning note about vaulting ambition. I say ambition is good and necessary, but needs to be watched and controlled. Don’t let your ambition overflow its banks. For then, it becomes vaulting ambition which is very dangerous. Vaulting ambition has caused so much destruction in the world. Adolf Hitler towers above the world’s leaders as someone who got to the apex of vaulting ambition. The sad result was he caused untold destruction of humanity. And in fact, he did not only destroy others, he destroyed himself as well. That is what happens with vaulting ambition. You destroy not only others in the course of pursuing your goal but also yourself.” Romilia Quotes

Things to dump in life

There are things
You must not have in your handbag;
You must not have in your briefcase;
You must not have in your account;
You must not keep at home;
If they are already in your possession,
You must dump them;
You must not take them when you go out;
You must not share a bed with them.
Which are these things? Continue reading

Ambition

Not long ago, I heard someone condemning ambition. Who says it is bad to be ambitious? It is not bad to be ambitious. It is good to be ambitious.

Ambition is what pushing people to take their lives and the world to higher levels. It may be bad to be too ambitious but a reasonable degree of ambition is good and necessary.

To be ambitious is to have a burning desire to achieve something. There is nothing wrong with that and everything good with it.

For heaven’s sake, be ambitious. Be ambitious to achieve something. Have an ambition. To live with no ambition is to be dead and living. Be ambitious to make the best use of your God-given talents.

Every ambition is achievable

“Every ambition is achievable. If God puts an ambition in your heart know that he has also put in you what it takes to achieve it; but most often it is latent ability which you have to develop. If you create the time and make the effort necessary to develop this ability, you will find it by far easier to achieve your ambition than imagined.”

Romilia Quotes 24

“There are many among us who have no ambition. They just live. Ask them what they want to become and they will stare at you blankly. How sad this can be! How can you not have an ambition or ambitions for your life? If you want nothing or do not know what you want, you surely cannot do anything worthwhile. Everyone worth their salt needs to have an ambition or ambitions; a dream or goal you want to achieve. And on this ambition, you focus your mind and heart; and do the best you can to achieve it. If you have no ambition, get one now. If you do not know where you want to go, decide now.”
