Publisher's Summary

Ambition can be a powerful force for good in our lives. But only if it is legitimate. Sometimes misinterpreted and often misunderstood, ambition - true ambition - is not a selfish quality. It is not another word for ruthless; it is not something to be shunned or subdued. Legitimate ambition is an honorable trait. At its very best, our ambition serves us and other people. In fact, pursuing your ambition is one of the most selfless things you can do. In The Power of Ambition: Unleashing the Conquering Drive Within You, renowned speaker and author Jim Rohn reevaluates the role of ambition in all aspects of our lives, exploring the facts, debunking the fiction and revealing the six life-changing steps anyone can take to build their legitimate ambition. Let Jim Rohn be your guide as you learn how to use your ambition not only to change what is going on around you, but what is going on within you. Along the way, you will also learn:

How to develop the three cornerstones of an ambitious life.
Why enlightened self-interest leads to wealth and why self-preservation leads only to poverty.
Why life reserves its treasures for those who deserve them, not for those who need them.
The seven components of resilience and how they can work for you.
How creativity and courage can keep you actively working toward your goals.
The secrets of successful networking and other ways to make your relationships work for you.
The five aspects of patience in action, otherwise known as persistence.

True ambition is a disciplined, eager desire for achievement. It is a state of mind, a way of life. With The Power of Ambition you can take charge of your own personal happiness, chart your own course through life and let your legitimate ambition create whatever you desire, take you wherever you want to go.

Jim Rohn is a master teacher, a million dollar mentor. If you have a humble heart and are teachable, Jim will help you in ways you could not imagine as he narrates his own work. It's as if he has sat you down at the kitchen table and lays it our for you just you. Listen to it many times - start a journal and take notes and yourself grow. It has changed my life emotionally, spiritually and financially.

Absolutely Phenomenal!

Where does The Power of Ambition rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Its difficult to answer as one normally buys self development books to deal with different stages of life and business, but the relevance of this book is so applicable, I would honestly rate it as the best book I have listened to to date!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Power of Ambition?

Jim Rohn addresses everything an ambitious person experiences on their quest to hit a goal or achieving a dream, what really struck a cord with me is dealing with frustration. Also choosing to be happy everyday of your experiences, enjoy the path/ the journey!
Also keeping at it, every day, every day, every day until you succeed, learning from the day before or experience before.

Skills make you a fortune!

Just absolutely inspiring to hear and apply!

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Every chapter is brilliant but the introduction just blew me away!

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book is motivational. As it's Jim Rohn talking but the way its recorded its like he's talking directly to you rather than just being another participant in a workshop. Just 10 minutes of this will set you up for the day!

Any additional comments?

If you are in sales/ sales management, a business owner, entrepreneur or anyone inspired to achieve a major goal and seeds of doubt may start to creep in or you want the wisdom to start your journey well, GET THIS BOOK! Listen to it 10 times or more! The wisdom is invaluable!
