Bare Naked
Contributor

Contrary to popular belief, ambition and spirituality aren’t in opposition to each other. 

 

  • Ambition is a strong desire to achieve something.
  • Spirituality is connection with our essence, our spirit that’s already whole and perfect. 

 

From my perspective, the important thing is understanding the motivation behind our ambition

 

The externals (academic achievement, upper echelon title at work, bling, financial status, the super-duper whamodyne car in the garage) isn’t who we are.

 

When we remove the externals—strip down and get bare naked to the internals—we reach our essence, our being. That’s where abundance resides: peace, joy, compassion, gratitude, inspiration, creativity, and grace—our basic wealth.

 

It’s from our essence that we pursue our passion—an expansion of who we are. Living our passion fuels both the internal and the external aspects of our self.

 

It’s from our essence that we utilize our talents, achieve our ambitions, and live our potential—to make a positive, uplifting, constructive, and healing impression on those in our sphere of influence.

 

When was the last time you got bare naked—right down to your essence?
