"Keep away from those who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you believe that you too can become great." -Mark Twain

Ambition is the force driving us to reach our dreams, yet sometimes others can affect our ambition by questioning our choices or dreams we seek to achieve. Sometimes we can affect our own ambitions by talking ourselves out of our dreams and by thinking that we're not smart enough, talented enough or giving enough.

Think of someone great or small who achieved a goal or dream because of his or her ambition, and despite setbacks or criticism, remained focused on achieving that dream. If you could sit down with this person for a cup of coffee, what questions would you ask them? What advice would you seek?
