A personal characteristic that is an enormous source of strength is my ambition. This is what drives me to succeed in my goals. I use it to propel myself forward everyday.. It was used when I went from 240lbs to 170lbs. When I was out looking for a job after i got out of the Army. It helped me settle for nothing less than a job that would benefit me in the future. This is the base of my mountain from which all of my other characteristics originate. This is the source of my power.
