Default Ambitious things

This might come across as a strange thread. Bear with me. I love ambitious things. Married one who.. sadly snowed me.. But that aside what have you done lately that was ambitious? The kind of thing that did not come easy and required a degree of difficulty.. Now you see how weird I am..

To many it may not seem ambitious to join a site like this, but to me it took a lot of inner strength to do so.

I stopped eating meat in June, and it really hasn't been a struggle. I think sometimes when things sound ambitious, we are what holds ourselves back. Once we jump in and start, we realize the worry about the undertaking was much more difficult than the task itself.

I started weight loss 6 months ago. I thought that meant giving up everything. I have learned it is merely a change to eliminate all of my bad eating habits. So far it's been successful and should be pretty darn hot soon.

I yanked everything out of my kitchen cabinets last week, then reorganized. That's the most awesome kind of feeling. I love no mess, no baggage, owning only things that are useful, or that you love.

I tweak other things in my diet for health reasons. The no meat thing was a moral decision I've wanted to achieve for 20 or 30 years. Although I do eat salmon still. It just always seemed hard to tackle other times in my lifestyle. In June my youngest and I watched Okja, and made an immediate decision. It was probably easier with her camaraderie. Ambition can only be achieved if it comes from that person, and they commit. But encouragement for the outside helps.

I am very committed and you are right support is always a good thing. I am glad you had someone to do it with. I wish I did.

If the strive for an ambition is more important than actually achieving it, then I'd say writing a novel.

I wanted a certain promotion, worked my ass off and got it. That's ambitious, but on days like today where I am exhausted, I wonder if it was smart.

I packed up my house, left a steady job and my family too move to a town where I knew no-one, to an unforeseen future and no job prospects ambitious or stupid, I'm not sure, but it's worked out extremely well, I got a cute house and a very challenging, rewarding job... both quite quickly. My next goal is to take more control of my health... baby steps.

but I do have a shed filled with old inherited furniture in need of restoring...if anyone feels real ambitious

It's a big project that sounded ambitiously amazing when I first agreed to it!!!...but has turned into that "I guess next weekend" elephant that's in the way of more pressing jobs

I guess the question confuses me. The definition of ambition is to be "eagerly desirous of achieving or obtaining success, power, wealth, a specific goal, etc." So if you asked me if I'm ambitious I'd say no because I don't spend much time thinking to those things. In fact I live a pretty humble life. And yet all those things seem to flow naturally just because I have a natural curiosity about the world and enjoy what I do. I remember when I was presented an award by some well known important person in front of 1000 people. And I also remember how much I didn't want to be there receiving all that attention. I think an ambitious person would have enjoyed it and so I guess I'm not an ambitious person.

well done on your award, i think ambition has nothing to do with confidence, but surely ambition drove you to get your award

Didn't mean for it to be a bring and brag.. Just life is tough sometimes and liking difficult things for me is a lifesaver.
