The play Macbeth by William Shakespeare is a Testimony to the negative repercussions of vaulting ambition. In Macbeth, character's morals are put to the test by supernatural forces. This is illustrated by the character Macbeth, whose tragic downfall is ultimately the result of his ambition.

Macbeth’s vaulting ambition causes him to make faulty decisions, thereby causing not only his own destruction, but the deaths of family and foe.
Those who work diligently in the face of a problem work harder and remain humble in order to overcome the issue at hand. Others who are power hungry, however, remain selfish and greedy.

Adversity causes Macbeth to work harder and use the help of the other men around him, yet when he ultimately acquires the power he is searching for, it goes to his head, causing him to act in violence by murdering those who he believes stand in his way.
When ambition is overlooked, it has the ability to become extremely dangerous. Macbeth from Shakespeare is a clear example of this. As he rises to power, he becomes more and more of a threat to those around him, killing those he was once loyal to. Destruction when ambition goes unchecked is present throughout the play because of Macbeth’s strong desires that ultimately lead to the deaths of Duncan, Banquo, and nearly Macduff.
