Enthusiasm vs. Ambition

Enthusiasm: absorbing or controlling possession of the mind by any interest or pursuit; lively interest


Ambition: an earnest desire for some type of achievement or distinction, aspower, honor, fame, or wealth, and the willingness to strive for its attainment


I’ve been thinking about the difference. I’ve been called ambitious in a negative way. I’ve been called enthusiastic in a positive way. Is ambition negative? Is enthusiasm positive?

What do you think?
