Beware: The World Kills Your Ambition
How to get your life back in your hands.
Have you ever felt you had better aspiration for your future?
As a kid you wanted to be an astronaut, a doctor, a movie star or a super hero?
Today, you have a 9 to 5 job which brings food on the table and a roof over your head.
The spirit isn’t there tho.
It happens. It happened to me as well.
First, you should take a step back.
This is totally ok, you can change that up.
When you are a kid, your personality is very influenced by your environment.
It means the same genetically you with different parents, teachers, friends, would be a TOTALLY different version.
There are four famous type of personalities.
You can find more, it depends on the philosophy you are looking at, but those are the most common:
DISC for short.
Each and every one of those personalities are a part of yourself.
In an ideal world, one would be 25% of each DISC personalities.
We are not in an ideal world.
As a disclaimer I want to insist, there are no good or bad personalities, they are all good.
They are just who you are.
For you to feel in better alignment with yourself it is important to know who you are and what is your type of personality.
Remember, you are the four of them. Some are stronger, that’s it.
To go back on your ambition.
The personality of the ambition is Dominance.
Usually two Dominance personalities would fight over a main goal. Only one can survive.
It was not you.
It can be a parent whom told you that B+ was not good enough.
It can be a partner to whom you were not doing the right thing.
The Dominance personality doesn’t like to fail. Often needs to be told how good he/she does.
So quite easily, to get that ambition back, work on your Dominance.
How will you do that?
Well, ideally you would get a coach or a mentor who will give you the support you need.
Each one of us being unique, don’t expect to find something that will work for everybody just like this.
I’m good, but I’m no magician.
I can still give you few tricks.
If your strong personality is Influencer, convince yourself that to have more fun, you need better projects.
Of course it will be hard, but you are full of ideas and your network will most definitely have your back.
If your strong personality is Steadiness, you have to understand it is okay to not succeed on the first attempted.
You are smart and you have knowledge. Have faith in yourself, but trust more others.
They might not know as much as you. It is okay. In life no one succeeds alone. Just try, it doesn’t have to be perfect.
Even the diamond isn’t at its first encounter.
If your strong personality is Compliance, you should learn how to say NO and YES.
Not, “well, actually I don’t really know cause maybe ahem…”
It is okay to say no. You can help others only if you help yourself first.
You have a voice, use it.
