What Was Your Ambition?

Recommended Posts

I was asked many times by different people, when I was a kid. Asked by relatives, teachers, classmates etc. Looking back I feel so lucky that people around me that time was interested in what I wanted to be when I grow up. Going back to the question...

During different stages of my life I had different ambitions. Right now, I want my grandkids to go to Mars. During my 40's I wanted to be a centenarian, I ate only "painfully" nutritious food, and did "impossibly" healthy lifestyle. In my 30's I wanted to conquer the world. 20's I realized that none of my earlier ambitions were happening. That decade was the most difficult part of my life, so uncertain, so stressful, so many big decisions had to be made. That decade was also the time I read so many self-help books, which guided me through rough times. Thank you to the authors who shared their ideas with me!

When I was in grade school I wanted to be a teacher, inspired by my uncles who were teachers in Ateneo de Davao. Then I wanted to be a scientist when I was in grade 4-6. I also wanted to be a priest when I was in high school, and when I was in college i wanted to be both a man of science and a servant of God, a Jesuit. Enough about me.

What was your ambition? Were you able to fulfil your childhood dreams? Share your story 🙂
