Ambition:a strong desire to do or to achieve something, typically requiring determination and hard work. (Oxford dictionary)
There are different ways to interpret ambition, but I define it as energy to make “it” happen. Just like our unique differences fulfill our personalities, “it” varies amongst us as well. “It” could be a new job you’ve wanted, or, you realized your not happy with the one you have and you want to leave. “It” could be a new skill that you want to master, a place you’ve never been, a marathon you’ve never ran. “It” could be ANYTHING.
So when I thought about what kind of blog I wanted to write, I couldn’t help but think, I should encourage ambition. I am invested in not one, but many diverse interests, hobbies, and skill sets that I feel could reach anyone at some point.
“Isn’t a blog more successful when it is focuses on one particular topic?” I was asked.
My answer is… maybe, BUT, if people read my blog and feel inspired to either try something new, or just needed that little push of confidence to be ambitious, then It’s successful.
To be honest, it is hard to predict what direction this blog will go exactly… I want to integrate various amounts of information in different ways. From inspirational pictures, interviews with friends, integrate the reader responses and questions, gear and place reviews for adventure, and more. I am also a teacher, so a goal of mine is to have a page dedicated for teachers to get ambitious about lesson ideas, prioritizing, and building relationships. I’d also like students to get inspired to try new things or have the guts to do something they’ve always wanted to do!
As you could probably see now my dilemma of being “specific” enough for the blogging world…but time will tell. Ambition is something everyone has, whether they know it or not. This blog is meant to strike a spark to lite the dormant fire that could burn in every single one of us!
