Ambition

A wise youth seizes the day, but what a shame to see
a young person who sleeps away his hour of opportunity.

One obvious character trait of a successful person is endless ambition. People with ambition are usually known as hard workers and are always concerned about getting things done. Ambition helps them to see many opportunities that less ambitious people miss. They know that life may not always go their way, but they take advantage of opportunities that come up.

Something to consider is that ambition and greed are not the same thing. Ambition is a desire to be productive, creating a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction when the work is done. Greed is a desire for personal gain with no concern for the impact of one’s actions on others.
