Ego vs Ambition.

I was thinking about purpose and amibition and how, on the outside, that could look a lot like ego. And I realized that ego is just drive without a purpose. It's an obsession with yourself. And it can be easy to fall into that trap. But I think that if we stay focused on our goals, on our purpose whatever that may be, and to remember to help others rather than help ourselves we can avoid being an egotistical person. And also, that a strong sense of self and belief in yourself and your mission are not bad things.
