What do you want in life? Many people struggle with this question. Maybe you do too? Maybe some of you have already figured it all out? Life can get so busy that we don’t have time to really think about what we want in life. And when we do find what we want, it can seem impossible to achieve it. Many people have different ambitions in life. So, the word ambition would have different definitions, depending on whom you ask. To me, ambition is a burning desire to achieve your goals or to succeed. Ambition is related to dedication, motivation and time. So don’t be afraid to dream big.
Since this is my last year in school, I have been asked frequently on what I want to do later in life. To be honest, I’m not quite sure what I want to be in the future. It used to be so easy when I was just a kid. You could be anything you want. You could be a dancer, a singer and even an actress. Now, you have to be realistic. So, which path should I choose? Should I choose to make something incredible with my life or just sit back and enjoy and let nature takes its own course? I’ve been thinking about it a lot and I’ve decided to make a difference in this world.
I’ve decided to make other people’s lives better. I’ve decided to make something out of myself. That is when I decided to be a doctor. Sure, it’s a very typical career but what all of you don’t know is being a doctor is very hard and challenging. I must admit the life of a doctor is not at all glamorous, instead it is very hectic and sometimes you don’t even have time to sleep! However, that fact does not make me want to throw in the towel. I want to be a doctor because I want to make a significant impact on someone’s life. In my opinion, what more can you do with your life than saving others everyday?
Realizing this made it very clear that I want to be a doctor. Even though I’m going to have to work extremely hard and overcome many obstacles to get there, I know it will be worth it in the end. The other day I was watching Forrest Gump. Forrest said ” Life is like a box of chocolates, you’ll never know what you’re gonna get”. It means life is unpredictable. You can never know what you’ll get in life or what you’re going to be in the future. However you can choose the path of your life. Don’t let anybody tell you what you can or can’t be. This is your life. You have the right to control it.
