Are you a kind of person who is contented with the things you have a person who wants more and so ambitious?Being contented is good because there are things that we do not get in life but we should also try to work hard so that we will have the great things in our life.Life is not just where we are but also what we plan to make our life better.We should not just stay in one place,we should try to explore what we can do in order for us to be successful.Being ambitious is also good but we should not just dream about it but we should always do what we have to do.Are you contented with your life or are you ambitious?Share your thoughts here.

Well, being on a limited income of course, it does make a difference. I'm content with what I have, but I am saving money to get what I want. I need to move, get a car, another couch, and a new computer. Ok, out of those 4, I have a computer, a couch, and a place to live. I would like to move because this is not where I want to be, so therefore, I will save to find another place to live. It's the best I can do. Am I ambitious? Of course I am, but at my age, no one wants to hire me for a job no more, so I need to do this stuff by myself and just keep saving as much as I can. I'll get there, it will just have to be the hard way, but it will be done. So, I guess you can say I'm content because I have a roof over my head, but ambitious enough to get what I want so I keep on going and pushing forward.

I am content with what I have but I am secretly ambitious. I'm not very good at being ambitious though, because I always want to do everything and end up getting nowhere! But seriously, I am content at the moment but would like some things to be better so I'm working on that. I'm still learning but I'm beginning to be able to be happy with what I have while also pushing myself but not too much. :0

I have never considered myself to be an aggressively ambitious person. i am usually contented quite easily and am thankful for what my life has given to me.

Every individual is ambitious and always searching for something to make his/her contentment in life. I can't say I was already contented on what I have right now but seems there's still missing in my life. To find that missing part, I must have patience and self confidence to undergo it. Also I am too ambitious to those reachable things that I can get. No matter what happens all things may happen in right time at the right place let's just be patience in waiting and don't give up.

It's good for a person to be ambitious but one's ambition should be realistic. I am not too happy about my present condition. I am a university teacher but feels I wasted some time in the past. I am, however, contented with what I've been able to achieve and making conscious effort to move forward. One thing is sure, a person who is not ambitious in life may not be so successful. However, one should be careful never to make one's ambition to consume one to the extent of doing what is illegal to make one's dream become a reality.

I am a contented person and I also cannot say that I am not an ambitious one. I am ambitious in different ways. Of course, all people have ambitions in their lives. It is not bad but we should know our limitations. Being an ambitious too much can definitely lead you to the dark side.

Unfortunately for me, I teeter between the two. Sometimes, I get ambitious and dream all and do all. And then I get lazy and become contented. But then, something comes up and I am no longer contented, and then I regret the time I wasted being content. It's a vicious cycle, and time is flying by and still I haven't chosen which is which.
