Short Essay on the My Aim in Life (Free to read)

Essay on the My Aim in Life OR the Choice of Profession (Free to read). Everybody must have some aim in life. An aimless life is like a ship without a rudder.

The choice of profession is no less important and difficult than the choice of one’s life partner. Having once chosen one’s profession and that too very judiciously and thoughtfully one must devote full time and energy and all honest and valid means to achieve it. The achievement of one’s aim is not always a smooth sailing. It often requires great patience, perseverance and sacrifice. This, one can do, only if one is convinced that one is cut out for it and the profession concerned is really a noble and satisfying one. The choice’ of a profession also some­times depends upon one’s domestic atmos­phere. For instance, my father, uncle and elder brother are doctors. I have often heard those discussing medical terms and dis­eases at home. This has developed in me natural bent of mind towards the medical profession since my childhood.

Even otherwise, now I am grown up enough to think for myself and for society. I find humanity in the grip of terrible disease and misery. I feel it my duty to toy to alleviate this misery to the best of my capacity and capability. As far as I am concerned, I think that nothing is of better worth in the world than dedicating one’s life to the service of the poor patients groaning under the pain of disease.

My Aim in Life

Sometimes, I hear about doctors play­ing tricks with their patients to amass huge wealth. They roll in luxury at the cost of poor, suffering patients. Then I have to sit up and think twice whether this profession is actu­ally worthy of being followed. After much contemplation, I have realized that there are certain undesirable persons in almost every profession and they deserve to be ignored.

I know that to be a doctor requires hard labor and it causes a lot of financial burden on the parents. Fortunately, my parents are wealthy enough to afford my studies in the medical profession. I am by nature a hard­working student and have always shown excellent results in all classes since my childhood. I am confident that by dint of hard work and under the able guidance of my teachers who are well-versed in their subjects, I shall one day become a doctor. My parents also want me to follow in their foot­steps and are very helpful to me in my studies.

Finally, I must repeat my pledge that if all goes well and I succeed in becoming a doctor, I shall devote all my time and energy to the welfare of the poor patients. I shall treat the poor free of charge and shall not hesitate even in going to the rural areas. I am burning midnight oil. May god help me in getting my aim achieved!
