In this increasingly cynical world, the word "ambitious" has become synonymous with greed, and a lust for fame or power. This misconception, whether adopted consciously or unconsciously, has trapped countless generations in mediocrity, keeping entire families and communities from ever thriving, cultivating their inherent potential, or changing the world (and themselves) for the better.
This book breaks down ambition into its constituent parts, and teaches us how to take advantage of our own potential for change, moving beyond the limits we have always believed to be true, and stepping outside of mediocrity. We are designed to excel, and the obstacles and challenges we face in life are there to teach us and propel us forward.
Without the rain that falls, a seed will never reach beyond its small protective shell to become something amazing, adding beauty or shelter or sustenance to the world. By harnessing our ambition, in its purest form, we can break out of those shells that hold us back, and finally grow into whatever it is we were always meant to become.

About the Author

Living in rough neighbourhoods, in one home after another, without a father figure or anyone else to answer his many questions about life, and witnessing things no young person should have to face, Alpha A. Timbo grew up very conscious of a desire for change. He wanted better for himself, his family, and for others being stifled by the curse of mediocrity. He took full advantage of all the lessons life threw his way, pursuing his dreams, cultivating self-discipline and ambition, and eventually realizing his true potential and the God who gave it to him.
With this book, and all the insight and advice he imparts therein, he truly hopes to inspire others to do the same.
