Which option to consider?
Ambition is a desire to reach the heights in life, on which few people climb, sharpened pride, increased self-esteem.
This character trait has positive and negative sides, because manifestation in society and human relations are different.
Definitions of ambition are not on the same side. What causes this situation? Why is this situation? How to use ambitions correctly when they turn into ambition, which is a flaw?
Several centuries ago, people perceived ambitions in negative forms. Times change, because the terms and concepts acquire new shades. Despite this, the term "ambition" when translated from the Latin language has a negative connotation.It is assumed that an ambitious person thinks only of material, financial gain and is ready to give up positive, natural values to meet the needs. However, to consider the concept from a negative point of view in the XXI century should not.
Under the influence of capitalism, the inhabitants of Europe, regardless of representatives according to the level of financial support, begin to use the concept of an “ambitious person” differently. It is believed that the person reached the heights in the chosen niche, earned a large sum of money, became famous in his surroundings or on the city, country.
Ambitions lead to the desire to achieve heights in the chosen direction, to win fame and success.
The concept is associated with vanity, which leads to the appearance of a negative hue. The society does not notice that the two categories of character traits are interconnected, as a result of which the interpretation becomes confusing. The emergence of associations occurs under the influence of Western films and TV shows, including the stories that take place in Russia in the 21st century. The interpretation of the concept must be multifaceted in order to understand how far a person is ready to go in order to achieve the goals set, at what angle ambitions appear.
American scientists conducted a study with obvious conclusions. An ambitious person strives for success and recognition, faces stressful situations and negative emotions towards surrounding people, circumstances, obstacles. Chronic fatigue leads to wear and tear of the body, the approach of death. Peers who do not have significant success, live longer and feel inner happiness.
Ambitions without result turn into an empty sound. Efforts are required to achieve the goals, achieve the desired results. It is not enough to understand that ambitions are present if they are not realized for development in the chosen direction. Ambitions in the beginning of life are absent, but the socialization of the individual leads to their appearance. Strengthening occurs under the influence of established contacts, success in the area of interest. It is difficult to find a way out of this situation: a person has achieved his goals, wants to set big goals, since he has manifested himself on the same level. Ambitions take up, do not stimulate effective work activities, do not push for development, but become a threat to the individual.American scientists point out that ambitious people are less likely to marry because they have set clear, clear priorities in front of them, abandon everything for the sake of career advancement. People lose themselves, cease to appreciate happiness.
The desire for success in any area, the receipt of money comes selfishness, which manifests itself in full. Selfishness can be useful if it is under strict control, as it would otherwise affect mental health.
