The Shadows of Ambitions Spreads the Wings.

Ambition is not a load, but a part of the human drive and self-help in various processes which houses everything from survival to progress and innovation.

Of course there are downsides to any kind of strong driving forces, where the balance between visions and real opportunities can be difficult to explore without self-knowledge and experience. The border line is unknown until we have tested the internal frontier within ourselves.

The consequences of our own strength can only be measured by own efforts and no other people can assess whether the actual level of ambition for a person is a facade or reality. The question of credibility, intentions and ulterior motives will always hang in the air when we have to conclude any agreement, contract or cooperate with other people.

With more than 40 years working in the international environment, I have learned that aspirations are very different depending on ethnicity and the policies in force in each country. In some countries is corruption and cheating accepted more than in countries where democracy’s watchdogs are always on the lookout for both criminal and ethics law breakers regardless of where in the hierarchy that exists. These differences affect the course, people with honest and adherence to the law as a basic element of life and life with other people.

And so it has been almost ever since the human intelligence developed new and ambitious targets in many areas and especially where money was recognized means of payment for benefits and services. A proverb says that “People will be deceived” and that’s actually true today than ever before in which billions disappear into corruption ambitious hands and completely without benefit of either the greedy or the people who today live by the norms of ethics in both the private and commercial environment.

Many of these ambitious and corruption masters often live in a shadow and actually quite isolated from the outside world – a truly antisocial and selfish life that cannot contain much in the human universe, but certainly in substance with the hands full of jingling coins.

Corruption’s fortunes cannot save the world, but with the acceptance of these people’s life detailed casts and long shadows in the wake of their way to act on, that certainly does not contribute to either a higher moral or honest dealings with what is yours and mine.

Europe is today in a struggle with the economy in focus and especially the Greek economy. I must frankly confess that I regard all this as a “grandstanding” which neither makes a proper or ethical substance, but a circus farce where a few people’s ambitious vision drives the people around the ring without either content or just a small part of good scenography. It has become clear to understand the Greek mentality versus the countries that seek to meet the standards in a joint venture and to finish that game avoiding a completely mess is a typical “who has the ball” situation. A lot of politicians and officials in Europe with high visions, that simply has one shortcoming goal –  it is targeted against their own vested interests and especially the banks and other companies, that have been very interested in investment in the Greek peninsula – fixed by the Greeks formerly “ambitious” but not reliable financial reports.

The above is just a magnification of an ordinary life in many other countries where people stare into the eyes of cheat by others with ambitions and the shadows as the only way to completing their visions by means of illegal methods.

If these many selfish and egoistic people are not brought to light, the world will become aware of even more anarchy than ever and many wonderful words of peaceful coexistence like “We are one” – may soon be renamed to “We are all against all.”
