Ambition: the secret ingredient

“I consider the following characteristics absolutely necessary for any man to make a success — honesty, loyalty, tact and sobriety — and added to these is the greatest asset of them all — ambition, the keynote to success. Without ambition, or energy, if you please, the average man is sure to fail, for it is absolutely imperative in this age of sharp competition that every man put forth the best effort he has in his make-up and that he devote every moment of his time when he is on duty to the further ance of the interests of the firm who has placed enough confidence in him to make him their personal representative.” — DON LEE
