Who is the most ambitious people you know

And what are they like?

My mother is extremely ambitious. My mother and father divorced and she raised me on her own (sort of her fault, because she did not want my dad raising me). She went through college and got a very good job.

You mean "who is the most ambitious person you know?" or "who are the most ambitious people you know?"

Hard to say OP- I know and have known of a number of ambitious people and cannot say one was more so than another. Almost all successful people I know are ambitious- I will say that.

R1, Who are the most ambitious people you know.

R2, that's true. I think ambition and drive is a must in success.

I'm a hard worker and a boss called me 'ambitious' once like it was a dirty word and I was doing something wrong.

I left that place and am much happier now.

I still make about the same amount of money though and live in the same dingy apartment.

If I were truly more ambitious I'd be ahead more.

People who want to make money are not ambitious: they're greedy.

People who want a name or reputation are not ambitious: they're control freaks.

People who want power are not ambitious: they're sublimating the compulsion to engage in violence.

The only people who are really ambitious are the ones who want to change conditions in this world of ours, and they are mostly scientists, artists, and conspiracy theorists. They are the only real ambitious people left.

Ambition needs to be coupled with social skills in most cases.
