    Ambition is vital for people who eager to succeed. As far as I’m concerned, ambition is useful although it can be counterproductive in some cases.

    People with ambition tend to have a strong sense of conviction and a clear goal. That is to say, under the guide of ambition, they will not be swayed by external temptation, instead, they will constantly stick to their goals until they achieve success. Besides, when they encounter challenges, ambitious people never hold back since they hate to lose. Conversely, an unambitious man is more likely to give up as they lack both the desire for success and a sense of purpose and faith. In addition, fierce competitions are omnipresent in modern society and man without ambition is easy to lag behind their rivals, only ambitious people can adapt to modern society and live a successful life.

    While on the other hand, ambition may have adverse impact in some circumstances. People who are too ambitious believe that if a goal is worthy, then any means people taken to attain it is justifiable. For instance, the ambition for money and success might turn an innocent man into a violent robber or even a cold-blooded murderer. In this case, far from inspiring people being successful, ambition pulled some people into hell.

    To sum up, ambition is important for being successful but it is also considered as a double-edged sword. Only if we harness it properly will this characteristic be positive as well as useful.
