“The ambitions we have will become the stories we live. If you want to know what a person’s story is about, just ask then what they want. If we don’t want anything, we are living boring stories […].”
~ Donald Miller – “A Million Miles in a Thousand Years”
If your life is a story, would it be a story worth reading? Here’s the bigger question: do you want it to be?
We’re blessed that we get to choose what we want to pursue during our lifetime. It seems a shame therefore, that we would reject this blessing by not having any ambitions, desires, or goals we’re chasing.
Sure, pursuing such things involves struggle and the ability to overcome obstacles, but isn’t that what makes a good story? Wouldn’t overcoming obstacles in pursuit of something worthy also make for an interesting and fulfilling life? I think so!
Be aware of your ambitions. Know what they are and what you need to do to move toward them, and then, take those actions that will bring them about. By doing so, you’ll be writing a story, and a life, worth living.
