In this podcast Episode 38, David & Caron Loveless discuss how to engage in healthy ambition, that enhances everyone VS unhealthy ambition that steals and destroys various parts of people’s lives.
George Baker has said:
“I am one of those people who is so desperate to overcome their own sense of lack that they create some giant obstacle to overcome, or some massive achievement to attain, in order to feel that they might just be worth something.
I am an over-compensator; so desperate to feel okay about the fact that I am, in some ways, not as capable as other people that I seek to achieve the impossible—purely to show the whole world, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that I am enough.”

Here is a brief summary of today’s episode of “The Live True Podcast.”
How might we know if our goals and aspirations are coming from a healthy place or not? Here are a few of the many examples discussed in today’s podcast.
|Unhealthy Ambition||Healthy Ambition|
|Live for the future (destination)||Live in the moment (process & journey)|
|Heavy & difficult||Challenging, but carries a lightness to it|
|Never enough||Is enough|
|Uses people||Develops people|
|Unquestioned motives||Questions all motives|
|Always in a hurry||Finds regular rhythms to rest, then work|
|No sacrifice too much||Some sacrifices not worth it|
