Short Essay on Ambition

Ambition means a strong desire to attain success 4n one's life. All of us have certain ambition. Some have good ambition such as to be a famous doctor or a social worker etc. Some others have bad ambition. Some want to be rich like Bill Gates.

Some want to be Sai Bba and Gandhi while some others want to be very rich. If one's ambition is noble then he will surely prosper. On the contrary if one's ambition is selfish and narrow, he will surely fall in the long run. A person with bad ambition may initially be successful. But finally his ambition will be frustrated. Most people have an ambition to get power and prestige, wealth, and fame. Sometimes they are successful and sometimes unsuccessful depending upon the nature of the means.

Ambitious man is hard working. He exercises his will power and ability. Ambition without industry and will power is meaningless. If a person does not go to the field, his ambition to be a farmer cannot be fulfilled. Similarly, a student with an ambition to be a doctor should read diligently. If he does not work hard, he cannot be a doctor.

Thus, ambition coupled with hard work brings success and prosperity. History shows many examples. In the sphere of games and sports, mere ambition has no meaning. A young boy in order to be famous like Sachin, Gavaskar or Kapil Dev must work hard in cricket ground.

Ambition should not turn into day-dreams. Nobody can build castles in air. Only an idle man can do it. It is therefore advisable to be practical in our ambition.
