Book Summary:

Seth Buechley’s book Ambition was an incredible read. There is so much to love about this book. Here are a few things that really stood out to me.

  • The chapters were short and sweet
  • The chapters built on each other
  • The layout of the book was incredibly easy to digest
  • The stories were personal and the writing style was unique and different
  • The takeaways at the end of chapters were profound

The whole premise of this book is that ambitious people, which I consider myself to be, have a tough time handling failure and rejection. In an effort to not blur past an accomplishment, everything starts with showing gratitude.

Biggest Takeaway:

Disappointment is tied to expectations.

 

And it’s really hard to be bitter and spiteful when you are expressing gratitude and saying thanks.
