What if you are not ‘ambitious’…

Is it really necessary to be ambitious to be considered a valuable individual within the social context? What if you are content with the life you’ve got (which might or mightn’t conform to the expectations/standards of those around you) and have no ambitions to be ˋsuccessful´ (as the term is generally understood) in order toContinue reading “What if you are not ‘ambitious’…”
