Every time I mention AMBITION people automatically relate it to GREED or MONEY. That seems to be a popular misconception, but it has absolutely nothing to do with GREED or MONEY. A lot of people know that money is just a result. AMBITION has to do with PURPOSE.
Chances are, if you wake up in the morning and go to work/school, you have AMBITION. If you play sports or are into fitness, you have AMBITION. If you want to become better and succeed at something YOU ARE AMBITIOUS.
a strong desire to do or to achieve something, typically requiring determination and hard work.
