MY AMBITION IN LIFE
Points: Introduction - My ambition in life - My resolve to become a doctor - What I shall do as a doctor.
Different people have different ambitions. Some want to be rich. Some wish to become leaders of the country to gain honor. Some desire to be great scientists. There an others who are mainly led by a spirit of adventure. The latest craze among young boys and girls is to go to foreign countries. Their aim in life is to earn a lot of money within a short period. I am a human being. I too have my own ambition.
My ambition in life is not wealth, power or high social status. I am too modest a young man to aim at any of these things. My ambition is simple enough. It is the service of the poor and the down-trodden. Ever since I attained adolescence, it has been my joy to help those who are in trouble. Many a time I have left my work at the weeping of the neighbors. I have spent hours and hours together to remove the cause of their sorrow. My heart weeps at the sight of people in trouble. I do my best to help those who need my help. And. what a joy it is to me to find that I have been of service to some one. To work for others gives me a sort of peace of mind.
This being the case I have decided once for all to spend the rest of my life in the service of the suffering people. My ambition is to become a good doctor. For this purpose I have made up my mind to join a good medical college after passing Pre-medical Examination. I am determined to be a doctor. I shall be a doctor, different from the doctor who grows fat at the expenses of others. I shall never be on the lookout for fresh cases. I take oath not to fleece my patients of their hard earned wealth. I am sorry to find doctors who deceive their sick brethren. Doctor's business is after all service and I am determined to do so.
As a doctor it will be my object to charge only reasonable money for the medicine or medicines supplied to my patients. I do not want to collect any wealth for myself. I need money only for my bare necessities. This money
I shall be able to have by having a good practice. I will work hard. I shall earn reputation of being a good all-round doctor.
It is clear from what I have written that service of humanity will be my motto. I shall not run after riches. I shall always help the poor and the needy. May God help me to achieve it !
