Are you ambitious and annoyed too?

Are you ambitious and annoyed too?

So in case you didn’t already know I am ambitious and annoyed. Sometimes I’m just ambitious and sometimes I’m just annoyed and there are absolutely times when I am ambitious and annoyed at the same time. My question is are you ambitious and annoyed too?

So when I first introduced this clarity of my brand to those close to me I received mixed reviews. One person told me, that is definitely you. Another told me, that is going to turn people away. I said great to both! The reality is I am not all things to all people and as I push forward with defining my personal brand I will begin to attract more of those who are just like me, ambitious an annoyed.

So majority of the time I am in my ambitious state. I am constantly working to try to stabilize and grow my business(es). One thing most of you don’t know is that I am can be overly ambitious. I have tons of ideas and tons of things that I want to execute but there are only so many hours in a day. I also want to make sure that there is no confusion in who I am as a business woman. Another thing most won’t believe is that the person I get annoyed with the most is myself. I get annoyed every time that I don’t hit and surpass a goal. I get annoyed when I have an idea that I have been trying to find the right time to do and then I see someone else do it.

Believe it or not, I get more ambitious for other people’s projects than my own. That is where my desire for consulting comes into play. It actually helps me with my business. Working with others on developing their ideas allows me to walk away from my thoughts/ confusion and focus on them. So when I go back to my own projects I am mentally refreshed and able to see my project with fresh eyes.

Now I will be honest I do get annoyed with people other than myself. For instance, private business pages. Every time I see one of those it makes my head hurt. There are some other practices or lack there of, that put me in my annoyed state as well. It is my goal to be a resource and help people to understand how they are annoying all of us and help them to stop.

So now that I have shared some of my quirks of being ambitious and annoyed, I will ask you again, are your ambitious and annoyed?

    Hmmm…this was an interesting read. I initially connected to it because I too am an ambitious person. Sometimes I over do it as well so I completely understand. The part about businesses with private business accounts I do understand though. It may not be the same reasons for everyone but I do know that sometimes when people begin their entrepreneurial endeavors they are still working a job that pays the bills. Sometimes what they are doing for full time work does not allow them to be open with what they are doing on the side even if it is a legitimate business. Therefore they pages may be kept private until they are ready to let go of that full time job. It’s just another way to look at it so maybe you won’t let it annoy you so much?

    I enjoyed your article. Thanks for sharing!

      That’s an interesting perspective on the private pages. For me it is a barrier to entry I will not follow any pages that are private if I don’t know them. You definitely opened my eyes to something to new.

    I do understand. I have so many ideas floating in my head. Just last night, I had an awesome dream about my brand. I am definitely going to put it into action because it was so clear to me. I believe it was a message from God. Great blog and continue to do great things!

    I tend to get annoyed when I see others who don’t strive for more. Not sure if that’s because I’m ambitious because I honestly don’t think that highly of myself. LOL But I feel if I can do “it” anyone can.

      You’re definitely ambitious, that’s why others not achieving bothers you. You should think that highly of yourself!

    I definitely get it. When you are ambitious, it’s inevitable that you’ll come across many situations and people that annoy you. The key is to recognize the annoyance for the minor thing that it is and keep on pushing toward your goals.

      The annoyed part is not necessarily bad. Many times it helps me to refocus when I am annoyed with myself and when I am annoyed with others practices it helps me to understand the things that I don’t want to do. It’s a tool.

    “Believe it or not, I get more ambitious for other people’s projects than my own.” This right here is my struggle. I was always so focused on other people and their needs, that I began to neglect and devalue my own. I’ve definitely worked on this and have been making my own needs a priority. But sometimes I feel myself shifting back to my old ways. You’re right it’s about balance. I’m glad you use it fuel your ambition for your own projects.

      I have been there! I have been in that place where I am so consumed with someone else’s project that I neglected mine, to the point where I began to resent them for a lack of commitment to their project. I’m finally in a place where I am putting me first. Beyond necessary.

    I thought it was just me. I am constantly finding myself annoyed because I am always focused on helping other through one crisis after another. I need to learn to say NO!

      Yea it’s a struggle. My nature causes me to want engage with other people’s dreams. It took me a while to stop committing to others more than myself.

    Exactly Lauren! It is so annoying but I don’t even give those businesses a second look. If you share your link and the page is private, I instantly close it out and move on to the next.
