    what drives you?

    i think ambition is the sexiest characteristic in a guy, and consider myself lucky to have someone that's able to match and even humble me in this regard.

    for me..

    1) i promised my mom i'd pay off her house and that will turn into a reality within the next two years.

    2) at least once a month i stand on the observation deck overlooking our trading floor where i stood as a kid on my 6th grade field trip to remind myself how i got here and why i wanted to be here.

    3) not the cleanest record as a kid, so most teachers, counselors, and my entire block doubted me.

    on the one hand i got wood from the sheer balls of this person to accomplish all that by such a young age, but i'm kinda losing the wood when i try to imagine all the people that might have gotten chewed up and spit out in the process...

    ambition is sexy, but did you fuck people over to get there? just curious. if you didn't, so much the better... i think it rocks my whole universe that you helped your mom out like that... that's beyond awesome.

    what motivates me? making other people feel good. that's not always been very helpful in my life, but it's as close as i can come to a realistically honest answer in a split second of consideration.

    I'm probably weird then, coz being filthy rich or being famous or powerful or anything has never been on any of my wishlists.

    I just go with my simple dream of...

    INVADING EARTH! icon_twisted.gif

    I have a perception of who I am as a person, what I have the capability to achieve.

    And I damn well better live up to my own expecations!

    I have mixed feelings about ambition. Certainly drive and tenacity are sexy attributes, but when I think of all the essentially good people I have had to "throw under the bus" out of expediency, I feel less "rah, rah" about ambition. It's good to aim high, but we have to be realistic about the costs that will ultimately be inflicted upon others for our benefit. If you can live with all of it, then you are on your way.

    I need to amp up my own ambition a bit. My current ambitions: start my teaching career, move out and into a place of my own, and keep working on my body's fitness. I need to start working harder for them.

    yep, without regret - if you mean rightfully call people out. my colleagues are smart enough to understand a business move vs. a personal one, otherwise they wouldn't be working here. i have no problem publicly testing a colleague's capabilities if it needs to go there, since in the end you, the shareholder, benefits.

    LOL. Just kidding. Ambition is sexy, but I prefer to call it 'dreams'. icon_razz.gif
