Ambition Definition: Having a strong desire for success or achievement.

Etymology of 'Ambition'
mid-14c., from Middle French ambition or directly from Latin ambitionem (nominative ambitio) "a going around," especially to solicit votes, hence "a striving for favor, courting, flattery; a desire for honor, thirst for popularity," noun of action from past participle stem of ambire "to go around" (see ambient).

Rarely used in the literal sense in English, where it carries the secondary Latin sense of "eager or inordinate desire of honor or preferment." In early use always pejorative, of inordinate or overreaching desire; ambition was grouped with pride and vainglory.

Positive Suggestions:
"Awaken your natural Ambition"
"Perfect Ambition is within you"
"Allow yourself to feel Ambitious now"
"Accept Ambition"
"Trust in your Ambition"
