Kind Ambitionis about you having the tools to slide over to the driver’s seat of

written for you, as a practical guide you can use right now. It is a

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

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.
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!"

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."
