(Great questions lead to great answers; weak questions, weak ones.)

“What is my current greatest ambition?”

Coaching Point: The key word is “current.”

Time passes. Ambitions get satisfied. Or they don’t. Or they fade into unimportance.

Remember some of the ambitions you had as a child? As a teenager? As a young adult? Where are those ambitions on your roadmap today? Perhaps faded to the background to be replaced by…what?

A marker identifying someone who has ‘quit’ is they have no ambitions. No pulls, no passions, just passing time. “Circling the drain” some have labeled it.

Not for me! And not for thee!

Ambitions motivate, empower, strengthen, uplift. They are grin-inducing, contagious, outrageous, and engage us.

If you don’t have a current ambition, where would you look first to discover/re-discover one?
