Ambition supplies the driving force. It lends a meaning to life. A man without an ambition is just like a ship without a rudder, at the mercy of waves, tossing it here and there.

It gives right direction and makes man work single mindedly to attain that goal and to fulfill that ambition. Ambition makes man resourceful and hard-working, sincere and serious. It inculcates a purpose in life. Man strives hard to achieve what he has thought of to be.

My Ambition in Life
Everybody has an ambition in life. Like others I too have great ambition to reach lofty heights in life.
It is not always easy to make judicious choice of a profession. It depends upon various factors, namely, personal likes and dislikes a long term planning, academic qualifications and material resources. It is seen that one often takes to a profession which comes one’s Way without paying any regard to the above factors. Such person can never attain success in life. It is, therefore, essential to plan and decide carefully before selecting a profession.
As for me, I have given this matter a due consideration. I have also examined the relative merits of different professions. I have neither the debating faculty so essential for law nor the strong heart that can stand dissection of living creatures. Thus, I can neither be a lawyer, not a doctor, engineering has no doubt a bright future in the modem India but I cannot understand the intricacies of science. Trade and commerce, on the other hand require a lot of capital. If one fails, one may not have anything to fall back upon. Teaching is, of course the only profession that finds favour with my taste and temperament.
There are many reasons why I like this profession. A teacher has a sacred duty to perform. It is he on whom rests the responsibility for moulding the characters of young children. Apart from developing intellect, he can inculcate in them qualities of a good citizen– remaining neat and tidy, talking decently and sitting properly. These virtues are not easy to be imbibed. Only he who himself leads a life of simplicity, purity and rigid discipline can successfully cultivate these habits in his pupils.
Besides, a teacher always remains young. He may grow old in age but not in spirits. Perpetual contact with budding youth keeps him happy and cheerful. There are moments when domestic worries weigh on his mind but the delightful company of innocent children makes him overcome his transient mood of despair.
Then ‘there is the lively world of books written by master minds in which he dwells. I am very fond of reading books. This profession will thus help me in satisfying my craving for studies. Whether I shall succeed in achieving my goal not I cannot say. I know that some of my friends have more laudable ambitions but mine is by no means a low one. It is the highest profession of the world, as the teacher imparts education to the entire world.

In this world we come across very few people who do not have any desire or ambition in life. Then there are also those who waste their life by choosing wrong path which ultimately harms society also.
Although I am not an ambitious person, but this surely is my goal in life to lead a simple life, to serve humanity in whatever form possible and in whatever I do, must make my parents proud of me.
I have grown up in a middle class family, and my parents have instilled great values in me. In most of the professions people become corrupt by accepting bribery just to satisfy their greed. My values will never allow me to take bribes.
I would love to become a teacher, because of the simple and down to earth way of their life. I have my reasons for taking teaching as my life profession because of my fondness with children. I can give them knowledge about different things I can help the little ones in reading and writing. By doing this I would give my country better human beings for tomorrow, and they will be the assets of the country.
If, I am able to do these things, then I would think I have achieved my ambition in life.
