Ambition: Why It’s Good to Want More and How to Get It by Rachel Bridge

“It may sound counter‐intuitive but having a big ambition actually improves your chances of success. If the ultimate goal you are trying to achieve is too small, it can be easy to feel that you don’t need to make much of an effort to achieve it. Which invariably means that you don’t make any effort at all. So inevitably, nothing changes. And your ultimate goal never gets reached.”

“Seldom did the successful women in our sample approach new roles confident that they were a perfect fit for the job. Rather, they assumed that the role itself was negotiable and probed for what would tip the odds of success in their favor.
