Every person a man or woman has one or the other ambition in life. It is always a good thing to have an ambition in one’s life. A man or woman without an ambition is really an unfortunate person. As it does not have any set destination, it will reach no where. Without any set aim a person can achieve nothing in his life. An ambition is very essential in one’s life. Different persons have different ambitions in their lives. It differs from man to man. Some persons want to get wealth, others want to achieve fame still others want to do service to the mankind. Some want to become doctors, while others want to become engineers. Some want to become business men and others like to pursue a political career. Still others may like to become lawyers. My ambition of life is to become a teacher. I do not want wealth. I do not want to lead the glamorous life of an actor. But I want to serve my country in a very humble capacity. Nearly 70% of Pakistanis are illiterate. I want to educate my countrymen. I really feel that I can serve my fellowmen best by becoming a teacher. This is in spite of the fact that teachers in our country are ill-paid. But money is not my main motto in life. A teacher is the real friend, philosopher and guide of the students. He serves the cause of education. According to Plato education is the turning of the inner eye towards light. The teacher removes the ignorance from the minds of his students. I want to realize the same ideals in my life as a teacher for which great men like Socrates, Plato and Aristotle had worked throughout their life. I realize that if we are able to remove ignorance, illiteracy and superstitions from our country, we can develop it into a great country. I possess the zeal of a missionary for this profession and know that if I join it, the ambition of my life will be fulfilled greatly. I shall not only teach my students the theoretical education but I would try my best to develop their character.
