"Our ambitions and our dreams give us a glimpse of a beautiful someday….and they can help us get through a sometimes less than beautiful today.
It’s a tricky thing though, ambition. It can blind us to the price of success.
It can consume us… leading to dangerous obsessions… or empty hedonism.
But no matter how much we are fueled by this natural neurological impulse, ambition isn’t carved in stone.
And even if we don’t get to climb mountains, there’s still a chance that we can move them.
In the words of those old English poets, you can’t always get what you want.
But if you try sometime, you might find, you get what you need."
