From Curiosity to Fear and Back Again
Ambition can be a great thing, but it can also be a danger if not focused on untempered. So, how can we balance the ambition and enthusiasm without limiting the abilities we can find? Well, this is a problem I've had for as long as I can remember. I always had the enthusiasm for doing things and this ambition has led me to some difficult situations. Situations that I had to work through or figure out or, find myself in trouble for it. Yes, those who have enthusiasm attract those who have it or want it. But, what if the person wants it, but is jealous that you have it? Well, that's when the fear comes in, fear of oneself and what others fear because of your energy. They don't know how or where to find it, so they decide to stop wherever its coming from because it intimidates them. So, before I diverge to far, let me clarify, enthusiasm and ambition are strong motivators for oneself and can help someone reach the success of self (because external success is a subjective meter). But, if someone has the enthusiasm and does not keep it focused it can lead to a downfall of the self because the person isn't using it, instead, he/she is expecting results from it. This enthusiasm lead me to self publish my first CD and feel the ambition I had in myself.
