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.
