In a classroom of high school students, a teacher ask his students what ambitions do they have in their lives? Only the idealistic students then answered one by one. All of them tried to make their ambitions become the highest one. One student answered he wants to become a lawyer. Another student wanted to become a doctor. One lazy student said he wants to become the president of the country.
All of us had our own ambitions in life. One person I know, her great ambition in life is to travel around the world. Some people even aim to be number one in the country. These persons want to become the richest, most famous, most intelligent, most powerful persons in the country. Some benevolent persons of our country devote their lives in helping other people. Their ambitions in life are to be able to help the poor people of this country. Different people have different ambitions. All of them thought their own ambitions are the greatest ambitions in the country.
In my subconscious
point of view, I classified human's ambitions into two. They are ambitions
which are impossible to achieve and ambitions which are possible to achieve. In
my entire life, I already had different ambitions. As I grow, my ambitions
changes and grows. Like other people, I also make sure that my ambition would
be the greatest ambition in the country and beyond. I even aim to become a God.
However, after my mind becomes matured, I realized that this ambition belongs
to an ambition which is impossible to achieve. I will be so foolish if I
continue such ambition. For this reason, I started to think and deeply analyze
how I can remove such impossible ambition to become a possible ambition but
still become the greatest human ambition. I can be the most famous, richest and
most powerful person in the country. But what if I die? Those things would
suddenly become useless. So I need an ambition which doesn't ends and perishes.
One thing that doesn't perish is our spirits. Indeed I cannot become a God, but
still I can be with God. I can be in his kingdom and had an everlasting life.
This is the greatest thing that can possibly happen to a man. This is the
greatest ambition a man could ever have.
Men's greatest ambitions need the greatest steps to achieve such ambition. Love, truth, humility and kindness are some of the great things we can use to achieve this ambition. We must do hardest things to succeed the men's greatest ambition. We must clean our spirits and fill them with love and kindness.
We are all free to dream and have our own ambitions. But let us aim the highest possible thing. Let us dream knowing our limitations. Limitation keeps us in position. And if we go beyond the limitations, you will be out of your position. The truth will guide us and God will always be just on us.
