When ambition enters, creativity disappears -- because an ambitious man cannot be creative, because an ambitious man cannot love any activity for its own sake. While he is painting he is looking ahead; he is thinking, 'When am I going to get a Nobel Prize?' When he is writing a novel, he is looking ahead. He is always in the future -- and a creative person is always in the present. We destroy creativity. Nobody is born uncreative, but we make ninety-nine percent of people uncreative.

Human nature simply cannot subsist without a hope and aim of some kind.
Gilbert K. Chesterton

I am pretty similar to Rachel in our level of ambition. We are both just woman who aspire to do great things, and want to have fun along the way.
Meghan Markle

The mind only knows the measurable, the compass of itself, the frontiers, ambitions, hopes, desperation, misery, sorrows, and joys. Such a mind cannot invite freedom. All that it can do is to be aware of itself and not condemn what it sees; not condemn the ugly or cling to the beautiful, but see what is. The mere perception of what is is the beginning of the breaking down of the measurement of the mind, of its frontiers, its patterns - just to see things as they are. Then you will find that the mind can come to that freedom involuntarily, without knowing.
Jiddu Krishnamurti

If you set goals and go after them with all the determination you can muster, your gifts will take you places that will amaze you.
Les Brown

Dream small dreams. If you make them too big, you get overwhelmed and you don't do anything. If you make small goals and accomplish them, it gives you the confidence to go on to higher goals.
John H. Johnson

A perfection of means, and confusion of aims, seems to be our main problem.
Albert Einstein

You are dead if you aim only for kids. Adults are only kids grown up, anyway.
