Kind Ambition is about you having the tools to slide over to the driver’s seat of your own life.

Circumstances will always be changing, seemingly thwarting our plans, but we don’t have to be thrown around by them.  You can be in charge of your choices and actions more than you might imagine …yet


Kind Ambition is written for you, as a practical guide you can use right now.  It is a collection of insights and actions designed to help you move forward and get more out of your life at home and at work.  The chapters hold to a formula of first giving you a new way to look at things, then offering you tangible Action Steps to try them out, and finally some things to notice when you do.


Kind Ambition started with the premise that kindness and compassion are not in opposition to ambition, but in fact infuse ambition with sustainability. This is a Truth that we know in our hearts, and yet impatient commercialism can run roughshod over this in its unbridled haste. Life doesn't have to be that way if we don't choose to live that way.


Does it show more “power” to knock someone down, or to lift someone up? If you feel it’s obviously the latter, you’ve come to the right place. There are Truths that are “self-evident,” and when we ignore them, we feel something is wrong inside; there’s a break from “congruence.” We can be more, we can feel more.  We can be more connected to ourselves, each other, and the Universe that we're a part of.

You may have already had some insights regarding the difference between Reality and the Mental Constructs of Reality that cloud our vision. In our busy lives, being aware enough and able to choose Reality over those Mental Constructs is not easy. On the other hand, the reward of fully engaging in the wonders of Reality vs. the Mental Constructs we've been taught is True Freedom.

Ian Blei wrote “Kind Ambition; practical steps to achieve success without losing your soul” to get this concept out into the world. As more and more people have read the book, worked with Ian, or heard him speak, they have been asking for a way to connect with each other. The Facebook Fan Page is a start.  You can start a discussion with other folks who share your values, or just share stories of "Kind Ambition" in your own life.

Chaos Theory shows us that systems self-organize around what scientists call a “strange attractor,” or a “singularity.” That can be anything from a Gravity Well to a rock in a stream to a premise like Kind Ambition. The more people of like minds and hearts come together over something like this premise, the more systems will self-organize around it, following natural Chaos formation.



"Ian Blei knows more about developing and maximizing personal effectiveness than anyone I know. He does it with brilliance and with heart. I highly recommend this book!"

-Barbara Mark, Ph.D. Founder of Full Circle Institute
President the International Association of Coaches
and creator of Cut to the Chase.


"If you are interested in success, whether it is in running a large organization, a small business, or leading a satisfying life, you will find a right blend of rules, wisdom and wit in a digestible fashion that will serve to accomplish your objectives. The notion that kindness can be blended with ambition and made to work and serve the "bottom line" is enlightening, uplifting and satisfying."

-Steven Kiefel, NASA Scientist, CEO, Red Pill Media
