ACHIEVEMENT DRIVE

noun. A powerful drive to complete a task to the best of one's abilities and, frequently, to become acknowledged as well as approved with regard to reaching one's goals. Pupils with ambition have demonstrated higher marks than those pupils who are just as qualified but lacking the aforementioned trait.
