A concept that I’ve thought about for many years is,
“how do ambitious people strive for greatness while maintaining a sense of being content?”
A few years ago, I was full of ambition yet never quite content since I felt so far from where I wanted to go.
But recently, I’ve started to realize that I’m moving in the direction I want and I am exactly where I am supposed to be in my journey. This had led me to having a tranquil state of mind.
This narrative of “being on the journey”, helps me brush off that I might not be working hard enough by telling myself that I’ll get there eventually…
And while there is no destination that I am trying to reach, I have felt a tad bit complacent.
Ambition is a very important quality that I want to continue to cultivate in a healthy way.
I am curious, how do you push yourself constantly to create new ambitions and reach them, while maintaining a mindset of peace about being on the journey?

I think that having a veefriend of both of these adjectives would be a cool reminder for you while being on your journey. I don’t know if you read or watched this but basically Gary thought of VeeFriends a time ago which based on the fact everyone were frustrated and unmotivated bc of work he would thought of having some toy company that had toys like ambitious angel in real life form that these workers would put on their desk to stay motivated. I think that’s it I can’t quite recall but yah So essentially if that’s what your trying to do ngl that’s kind of one of veefriends purposes.
