My Ambition in Life

People have dreams in their lives. Many aspire to be rich or become business tycoon Some persons dream of becoming leaders, politicians and social reformers. There are others who have a strong urge for becoming poets, writers and novelists while most of us generally have a desire of becoming engineers, doctors and scientists of great repute. There are yet others who are happy-go-lucky by nature and float through life without any definite aim or goal.
I am not a very ambitious person in the generally accepted form. I do not wish to become a mill-owner or a multi-millionaire. The sole object of my life is to lead a life of simplicity and goodness devoted to the service of humanity. The life of a professional or a politician would not suit me as most of them tend to become parasites on the society I was born of middle-class parents. I have struggled through life and watched the cut-throat competition all around with a feeling of dismay, the never-ending cycle of corruption and greed hampers all efforts of progress. Unethical practices and limitless greed has to lead to a low
level of moral responsibility.

Then what do I want to be? Indeed, from the core of my heart, I wish to become a teacher. The motto of this life, ‘simple living and high thinking,’ inspires me to take up this profession. The noble teachers of ancient India remain as ideals before me. Like them, I would like to inspire my students to become good citizens of the world. There is no greater pride than witnessing the success of one’s student.
The main reason being my great affection for children. I feel that each child is like a beautiful and delicate flower that needs to be carefully nurtured. As a teacher, I can help the students in widening their outlook by giving them knowledge. I shall help the country by producing better citizens. Moreover, the company of young children would also help me remain young and fresh in thought and outlook. Besides rendering all these important services, I shall also have the basic means of subsistence. I have great faith in the life of a noble and an ideal teacher because according to India’s former President Dr S. Radhakrishnan, “Teachers are the custodians of the highest values.”
