Explanation:
Adding to the suggestions made by my colleagues above I'd add all these the translations of which are as follows:
Matmaa'-Himma-Maram-Mourad-'Azeema-Issrar-'Azm-Mas'aa.

If you use ambition as suggested above by my colleagues, it would be the commendable/benign/harmless type of ambition.

Some of suggestions I made carry connotation of non-commendable, non-praisworthy attitudes especially: Matmaa' مطمع.

My suggestion if you want to use 'ambitious attitudes' with the last word I quoted you'd say "مطامع = Mataami'" only one word.
