Get That Dream With These Motivational Quotes on Ambition


One of my favorite motivational quotes on ambition is from the movie, The Pursuit of Happyness. In the movie, Christopher Gardner, played by Will Smith, tells his son, "You got a dream, you gotta protect it. People can't do something themselves, they wanna tell you that you can't do it. You want something? Go get it. Period!" Here is a list of some of my other favorite motivational quotes on ambition.
