Call my husband ambitious and people will envision a dapper, successful man who commands a room. Call me ambitious and people imagine a selfish woman who sacrifices her family for her job and isn’t very nice to boot.

In this episode, we are going to explore the double standard around ambition and empower you to embrace who you are and step into the contribution you are here to make in the world.

Ambition/n/: To strive, a strong desire to do or achieve something.

  • Create your own mantra of what ambition is for you and OWN IT, SHOUT IT OUT
  • Don’t apologize or make excuses for your ambition. 
  • Ambition isn't an either or scenario. You can be ambitious and have a family, and be very engaged in life, and be happy.
  • Ambitious doesn't mean you give everything ELSE up in pursuit of success.
  • Change your language around ambition, like Mindy Kaling says, “Why  the F##K not me?” 
  • Challenge your own assumptions. What are your beliefs around ambition or climbing the corporate ladder? 
  • Reset your Ambition and your Money Mindset. It's ok to want money and success. 
  • Ambition doesn’t have to be limited to a corporate job, look at Julia Child -- she was ambitious about her passion for cooking.
