I would call it impediment for real success as worldly pleasures which can be bought with money are a farce. The real pleasure is in contentment & to be happy with what one has because greed is the budding step of wrong deeds which once one gets into is tough to come out of. For me, SANTOSHAM PARAM SUKHAM!!

1) Yeah. It is the naked truth which not only applies to human beings but also to the nations. A less ambitious nation remains like India, always chaotic and poor despite all the potential to change its own destiny to be rich and powerful in the international arena.
2) A contented man is always less ambitious and less intelligent. He is also lazy and does not try to make changes either to his own life or the lives of others. So such a person is not successful in the real sense.
3) So, to be successful, one must be really ambitious, selfish and ruthless.

I believe,a happy and contented life itself is the real success and all other worldly success and happiness follows it.

Hoping for a lot many terrestrial reaches does not confer on someone being more ambitious....and success can't be scaled in the unit of terrestrial belongings of someone....rather one's gift to the mankind...what new concepts ideas he has gifted to the welfare of the mankind....None recalls the richest person of pre-christian era, or post christian period....but everyone is indebted to Thomas Alva Edition who had gifted electricity bulbs, electric motors dynamos, motion pictures, gramophone,s and many more......
