Welcome to all of my Moms who have a child with diabetes!
Today’s Question: Is ambition a positive or negative trait?
Does having a child with diabetes mean you have to be ambitious? How do you define ambition? I define it as, “a strong desire to do or achieve something, typically requiring determination and hard work.
What’s your take? Is it a negative quality or a commendable quality? To me, it whether or not it’s negative or positive is dependent on what’s it’s fueled by. What’s the result you want from your ambition?
Ambition inspires some people, while it turns others off. Ambition fueled by compassion and understanding is very different than ambition fueled by greed and jealousy. When someone’s drive to achieve something comes at the expense of other people, while for others, their ambition comes from a place of wanting to make a contribution to the world.
What is your ambition fueled by? Is your ambition fueled by abundance or is it fueled by lack. When it’s fueled by lack, no cost is too high to achieve the end result. This is where workaholism, deceit, exploitation, and greed give ambition a bad name.
Ambition fueled by abundance is what moves us forward. It’s the trait that finds answers to insulin issues, it’s the trait that discovers technological issues such as the loop, and it’s the trait that finds solutions to our biggest diabetic issues.
Finding comfort in what we know and what we have is a first step, not the end game. Ambition, our desire for more, is what will keep us growing and evolving.
Have you considered what our world would be like if nobody was ambitious? I’m so thankful for all of you who have been ambitious in the world and for what you have created that contributes to a better quality of life for my child who has diabetes.
