While this blog shows that ambition is one of the things that makes success, yet it must not be forgotten that discontent is another great factor in bringing about success.
When the young woman finishes school she has life before her and has ambition to succeed. It is not particularly necessary that we find out what her ambition is to start her on the right path. Let the young woman get started at any thing. If she is ambitious and has ability in her to manage a business she will get there finally.
She may get started in the wrong line and this will make her discontented. The discontent will cause her to try another tack, and so long as discontent makes her change she will finally get into the right line by the process of eliminating those callings which make her discontented.
Time after time we find in reading the stories of successful business men that they have floundered around in the beginning of their career from one business or calling to another. Discontented with each of them they changed and changed and changed until they finally struck the thing best suited to them, and all the changes they made in the past were distinctly beneficial because of the experience they obtained.
If it were not for discontent many of the leaders in the business world today would still be on the farm or clerking in a country store.
Keep busy, young woman, do the first thing that comes handy. Change your job if you are discontented, for no one can do her best work if her heart is not in it. When discontent causes you to change frequently you may be sure that some day you will strike your gait, and then ambition will fire you to stick at it.
When you get on the right track and are not discontented you have struck it right.
