We decide (so) that what makes us significant is either what we do or what we refuse to do. But no matter how indifferent the universe may be to our choices and decisions, these choices and decisions are ours to make. We decide. We choose. And as we decide and choose, so are our lives formed. In the end, forming our own destiny is what ambition is about. ” Do you agree or disagree with him?

  • After reading Joseph Epstein's remark, I can't agree more. Just as he mentioned that as we decide and choose, so we lives formed. In the end, forming our own destiny is what ambition is about. Ambition, as I see it, really plays a decisive role along our life road. In the first place, we may feel lost before mountains of obstacles set on our way to success. At that moment, ambition endowed us with courage to tackle these difficulties and frustration. For example, if an ambitious graduate has made his decision to work in a top 500 firm, he will muster up the courage to achieve his goal no matter how competitive the job fair is. Secondly, ambition serves as a lighthouse to guide us to live an abundant life. It is hard to imagine that a man without ambition has a blueprint for his life. However, it is easy to imagine that a man without any plans may easily live an empty life. A man of great aspiration knows to set differing plans according to his status quo, of course, the process of turning there plans into reality is bitter, but its fruit is sweet. An ambitious man always knows what to do next. So they never idles the precious time. Accordingly, their life is abundant and fruitful. Finally, amibition teaches us how to adapt ourselves to the environment. The ambitious Mohammod, the fonder of Islam, was not welcome at the very first. Fortunately, a man of great ambition rarely gives up. So was Mohammod. He chose to absorb some gems from the Christianity and tried to feel the needs of people. Finally he made it, "if the mountain won't come to Mohammod, then Mohammod must come to the mountain", this is a lesson that every ambitious man should know. Life is a one way trip, on which we decide what is important and what is trivial in life, and we choose what we desire for and what we need. Our own destiny is for sure decided and choose by ourselves, and what kind of decide we made is decided by our ambition. With ambition, the weak become strong, the selfish become altruism and the hope for a successful life comes true.
