Ambition like fashion…

“Ambition like fashion is best left to the youthful and immature.”

– Me

My point is that if you’re over say 30 and still wearing “costumes” and/or chasing after the dream of owning Porche’s then maybe, just maybe, you have a maturity problem.

I think a significant portion of the “1%” suffer from this – even though they have it all, it’s never enough. If they were mature, they would have cast off this particular demon. Instead they suffer from “arrested development” and the endless need to pursue ghosts. Unfortunately we all suffer from their shortcomings.

That’s not to say a healthy degree of ambition is a bad thing (or fashion), but if you remain pathologically driven through your entire life, you’ve got to ask – what are you running from or running to?

Ultimately the Buddhists have a point here. And if you don’t know what that means, maybe you should consider reading up on Buddhism.
