accomplish/reach my ambitions


Senior Member
Hi everyone,

One of my students used "reach" in her written assignment in the following way: "When people reach their ambitions, they look for new challenges in life." Can we actually "reach" our ambitions, or should we use " accomplish" instead? Thanks in advance for your help!

    I would personally opt for "fulfill" or "realize," though both "accomplish" and "reach" seem like decent choices to me.

    I'd like to know how the other natives feel.
