Are atheists more ambitious than theists?

I’d like to think so.

I’m living for this life only so I aim high. Why not? In meatloaf and in life, I take as much as my plate can handle (and then some). Sometimes I feel like there are too many options. It’s hard to narrow down the things you want to explore and pursue in what little time we have. I try my best to stay organized and focused. That drive often comes from knowing my one life here on Earth is my final destination. I’m not racking up the points for a fantasy afterlife in heaven. This is it.

Maybe I’m looking for enjoyment. Maybe I’m looking for a way to be remembered. Either way, I am going to live life to the fullest.

    I may be the exception that proves the rule, but I have no ambition at all. Never have. I’d just as soon lie on the couch and watch the idiot box, or sit on the deck and read. I honestly wish I had some ambition, but as Popeye said, “I am what I am and that’s all that I am”. Toot, toot.
