    Ambition Isn't Enough

    I work in a field where ambition is everything, but I can't seem to use it to motivate me. It feels fake and selfish. Why should I try to make money for other people to make money to keep the economy making money? How is that worth the "price" of living? This is a serious...

    Little Ambition.

    I have the ability to make a lot of money with my creativity if I push myself to work 5 hours a day, 5 days a week. But I don't do that. I generally have a frantic full day of doing everything I could have done before and get stressed by it, and then not do...

    No Ambition With What To Do With My Life.

    I don't know what's wrong with me but it's like I'm stuck between the delinquent and the student who wants to do well in college. (AS level) I know I'm meant to do my work in my head but at home and extra work I just can 'do' the work. I don't know what it is but I need help :(
