ambitious & enthusiastic
September 17, 2009
“Ambition is enthusiasm with a purpose.”When I created my business card (yes I made business cards while in college) I wanted them to be something unique. And being an undergrad with a card wasn’t unique enough for me. I chose to include the above quote because I felt it completely described how I felt (and still feel) about looking for and beginning my career. For as long as I can remember, I have always looked forward to “my next big thing.” Whether that was a play, a dance, a job, or an internship I enjoyed what I had going on at that time, but knew there was plenty more to come. I pride myself in keeping busy, but still doing things for a reason. Behind a person’s ambition there must be something driving it. It could be achieving a goal, like personal satisfaction or monetary gain. It could be for positive outcomes or the result of vindictive measures. For me, it’s my excitement to continue learning and seeing what’s next. Taking the time to explain this quote has been much more difficult than I had anticipated. I’m not done explaining, but I do know one thing: this does explain me. Sidenote: if anyone knows who Frank Tyger is (the one who spoke these words originally) please let me know! Thus far, he is just a name to me.
