What does healthy ambition look like? Is it a God-given thing or just our own strivings? Do we have to make a choice between being ambitious and being happy? Jo and Steph tackle these questions and more in today’s episode on maximizing drive and ambition. Together they will look at what can happen when we repress ambition and how to discern which dreams are God-given (and how to embrace those healthily), and where we need to be cautious.

Discussion questions:

  1. What has driven you in different eras? What was healthy and helpful and what was not?
  2. Have you ever burnt people with your ambition? Is there anyone you need to go back to and have a conversation with?
  3. Is there someone who you can meet with regularly who will help you discern healthy ambitions from unhealthy ones and speak wisdom into your dreams?
