“Failure is only postponed success as long as courage ‘coaches’ ambition. The habit of persistence is the habit of victory,” says Herbert Kaufman.
Almost every individual has their ambition; Ambition leads us to the defined aim of life. So my ambition is to become a lawyer. Being a lawyer is a noble profession. I look around the world and see all the injustice that takes place in the world. I know, after becoming a lawyer, I can be able to make differences. I desire to help others especially those who cannot defend themselves. Some peoples think that lawyers are simply out for money but I believe in a good way of rendering service which would develop my skills, ability and attitude that I can apply to a lot of aspect of my life. Nowadays, there are so many problems in society and we need a good lawyer. I know becoming a successful lawyer will take a lot of preparation and hard work. I am willing to do what it takes for me to make my dream of becoming a lawyer a reality. As our society grows on complexion, the role of lawyers will grow as well. No longer is it possible for one single to handle every aspect of audients legal needs. I want my clients to see my profession who are dedicated to finding justice. The lawyers have to make personal sacrifices and level of stress they may endure. Even there are lawyers who work pro bono because they are dedicated to finding the justice they served.
It is my dream and I will make my dream come true. The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of dreams. The ambition starts with a good study in the school.My parents used to say me that study makes a man perfect and we don’t need to search for ambition instead ambition, will search us. The reason why I want to become a lawyer is that it is the dream of my mother as we don’t have any lawyer in our village. I want my parents to feel proud. Some lawyers don’t make lots of money compared to long hours they work but I desire to make a lot of money. I hope my dream will come true.
