What happened to my Ambitions?

I have always been faced with this puzzle for quite long now. What happened to me shouting i would have best house on the whole street? What happened to my plans buying the best car in the town? Where is that dream life with servants running all round? The fridge full of ice creams, pastries, chocolates, chicken (leg-straigntened sky-pointing turkey, to be precise) ? The television set running just cartoon movies day long with remote just in my hand? To be the richest man, the most honest person, the man blessed by blessings from poor, loved by one n all. The whole lust for attaining some position, achieving some goal, some ambition seems to be lost somewhere.

And now? Now is the case i have just one ambition left. Crawl through the work week mechanically just to feel and shout: TGIF… Thank God Its Friday.

Finally i have found the reason for this loss of ambition. See and examine it for yourself 🙂

Now i know who uhhh what is the culprit. And yes TGIF 😀

Hahaah!! I know that particular PhD Comics post! And yes I agree there are some days when we feel at loss of ambitions. But dude! everyone doesn’t ought to be heavily ambitious.

Hey Jassi .. Thanks for stopping by. Always good to see you.

Waise i disagree. I feel at some stage in our life everyone of us does feel heavily ambitious. You speak it out or not that is a different thing 🙂

@ Anurag

Yeah i know dude. But my problem is it took years. And now is the case facts are often neglected for cheeky dreams 🙂

Hey Amit!

This is a very good topic, here.

And for me, this is what I found out that…

….I’m still ambitious, however, my ambitions have readjusted and are nothing like what they use to be. So even though it may feel as though I have lost ambition…it’s really only my ambitions changing as I grow.

Thank you for this post!

Yeah may be that’s the way we can look at it. But still the problem lies the change drastically tapers the ambitions towards momentary gains. I am still wondering whats better 🙂
