An ambition is an eager, and sometimes an excessive, desire for creation, honor, ascendancy, power, or the attainment of something. Every person is said to have his or her anomalous ambition. One might have dream to be rich, or having a villa. On the other side, one wants to become famous, a scientist or a doctor. Similarly, I have too my own ambition. I don’t want to become wealthy; I don’t want to get any fame. My aim of life is very simple and it is to serve poor people who are not getting enough to survive in this world with all of my heart.
It’s said to be that person can be judged from what he wants to get in his life; and how he gets it; obviously it’s his ambition of life. There is one colloquia saying about ambition in life is that a person without any ambition in life is like a ship without a rudder who has no destination.
I am really supporting this quote. We are never likely told to cross a bridge until and unless we come to a bridge, but this is the world in which ambition help us cross that bridge faster than other people. Some people think ambition and dreams is equal. But there is a thin wall between ambition and dreams.
Ambition generally defined as somebody having a desire, a much stronger feeling than a dream. A dream is something that we can normally get without trying too much toward to achieve it. Ambition is the forces that keep us working and makes us go forward in our life. It’s the super energy which energized me when I was facing a problem in the path of my goal. There is only one way to achieve any aim: simply moving forward with continuous improvement and passionate hard working and, obviously, with honesty and dedication to achieve it. Having ambition is just not enough.
One must have to do continuous effort to achieve it. Maybe there is some obstacle, but it can be overcome only by self-esteem and a strong desire to achieve that ambition. If someone is only day dreaming and only planning instead of acting on that, it’s likely to get nothing but being at same place when where a person was once. Since I came to the U. S. from India at adolescence, I’m enjoying helping others no matter who he/she is. I have my opinion that if one will help others to achieve his life goal, he or she will ultimately achieve their goal. I would like to state my personal example here.
Once upon a time when I was in India, I had aimed to establish an Non-Government organization (NGO) that works to help slum children’s education as well as to oppose child labor who works at factories and Tea stalls. I started that by introducing my concept with my friend and family. And it was really appreciated by all of them as well as I got lots of suggestion from them. Then we planned to organize one event in which we had decided to go to a slum and poor people, we asked them their problems, what is the reason for not sending their child to school and we tried to understand them at all levels.
And by considering that all aspects we decided to admit some of the children in school with of our financial responsibility and provide them with basic necessities. We also introduced one scheme in which we had awarded the most three talented Children. And provided them scholarship for rest of his their higher education. We faced many problems during the starting phase as we had to work with illiterate people, complete formalities for their admission and in many surprising areas for which we didn’t think to be happen.
After all, we had overcome those entire difficulties with high spirits, moving forwarding by keeping vision in front of eye and definitely with the help of all NGO members. Now day, it’s working with full energy. There are many students getting benefit from this NGO and accomplishing their ambition which is one of my ambitions. It gives us more inspiration when students come to us and share their experiences of life. They are part of our NGO now and also working actively. One of best outside example I can state is about Mahatma Gandhi.
Mahatma Gandhi: “Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well” (#2988 from Laura Moncur’s Motivational Quotations). He had vision of free India. He was a bachelor of low graduate. He thought serve to country instead of become wealthy. Mahatma was smart enough to earn much more money by his qualification but he chose country over money. This is the most important thing which inspires to me toward achieving my ambition. He attained his goal by facing lots of difficulties in his way.
Some situations were very typical to handle but he didn’t compromise with situation. Instead of this, he understood that condition very well and faced that with great excellence, passion, self-confidence and proper planning. In William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, one can see how ambition can escort one to catastrophic effects if our destination is reached by swindling. Generally, focusing on a wrong aim seems to cause far too much guaranteed damage to relationships and to themselves. Macbeth’s ambition is to become king. In reality, he should have won this honor with honesty .
But Instead of getting all the rights with respect; he has stolen it by cheating others. It may not accepted by any person and so it happened with Macbeth. He didn’t get satisfaction but it may cause persecution, leading to more of the same. Once one is trapped into this unstoppable chain, the probability of getting out is with a lot of struggle. Macbeth: “Yet I do fear thy nature. It is too full the milk of human kindness…. Thou wouldst be great, Art not without ambition, but The illness should attend it. ”(I. v. 16-20). Ambition is a strong desire to do or achieve something.
Desire for success, wealth, fame. There is no any obstacle which can stop us from achieving what we have aimed to get in life. Our only obstacle is ourselves, and the extent of our ability to differentiate between a rewarding and devastating aim. If one can see it, one can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it. Don’t steal an idea, but use your own, and no matter what road you take, you will end up where you wanted to be. Yes I can be! I can achieve any ambition in my life no matter how hard the situation will be!
