You should be familiar with the proverb “Hitch your wagon to a star. ” The logic behind this proverb is simple. If you do not aspire for something great, you will not strive for the goal set consequently leading a life of regrets. Living a life of regrets determines a path less than desirable when you can follow the road of greater choice and be ambitious and go forth to lead a fulfilling and rewarding life. An ambition is an eager desire for honor, superiority, power, and the attainment of something set as a goal, accomplishment, or achievement.
Ambition comes from the Middle English word “ambicioun,” meaning and excessive desire for power, money, or wealth. Ambition is something that you, no matter your age or cultural background, have inside of them. Ambition can be a driving force for success, or in some cases a road to failure. Through ambitious undertakings you can set goals and find yourself using your God-given talents. You too can have a dream! My ambition or goal in life is becoming a doctor. Since I was a young girl watching my Mom working at the hospital I have dreamed of wearing that white coat and the stethoscope.
My earliest memories include the stories from my mother with regard to caring for patients. You can believe that one day you will be able to see me look into my patient’s eyes and be able to know exactly how to diagnose and mend that person’s ailment. The road to making my dream a reality will not be easy, nor can you expect your dreams to be easy. Each one of you will have many great college classes, labs, examinations, and sleepless nights ahead in the years to come.
But, in the end you will know it is worth all the hard work and sacrifice and you will be able to stand proud knowing that it was your ambition that allowed you to achieve success!
