Ambition: /amˈbiSH(ə)n/noun a strong desire to do or to achieve something, typically requiring determination and hard work.

But what underlies this desire to do something? What motivates us? 

I’ve embarked on a journey and every time I start over I realize what pushes me, it’s to reach the end goal.

The goal whatever may it be; here is a list of the past achieved ones are: 

Weight loss

Job search

Master’s degree

New apartment 

New city 

and there are many other goals big and small that my ambitious bi-polar nature has sought out to achieve. 

For me it was always what’s next, what I have now isn’t good enough. What is my true calling, what is my path? What drives me? 

Often, especially as of late, I am beginning to wonder if greed underlies ambition, especially for those who are eagerly searching for “next” and keep going.

/ɡrēd/ noun
 intense and selfish desire for something, especially wealth, power, or food.

I still struggle to know when is enough, enough?
