Visionary Ambition....

hi...
Just wanted to pen down another one...the thought is just fresh in my mind.People say that in life we got to be ambitious...What exactly do they mean by it.What is Ambition?...Some might say a will to go ahead and succeded....i think its a desire within 1 self to fight against all the odds,to do what none could do.
Just wanted to reflect my points more clearly by sharing a real life story with you people.Its again 2 people.. both of them orphans...(this is for real)...both of them fought life hard and worked to earn a decent wages and respect in life.
Well i wont disclose them so easily.Lets see what the first person did.He completed his education with decent grades.Always said that the fates were against him and that was the case. Whenever he started off he used to some or the other problem and his progress was halted.But still managed to reach a good position.He is living happily in one of the well known lanes of Moscow with payment of 40,000/monthly.Great isnt it.Against the odds..thts great..
The second same as the first not that bright couldn't complete his education as he didnt get a good orphan caretaker like the previous 1,had to come down to the streets after his college,clearly facing more problems than the previous.But he went against the tide,against all and managed to make some decent money.Well to say a small amount 18.4 billion$ and he also owns the Chelsea Football Club.Yup his name is Roman Abrahmovich,(constantly under the scrutiny from me...hehe)
So what i want to say is Think Big...Think beyond barrier...Think as if none ever did...Its our life and its on us how large,how big we make it...well yes i would have been happy with a 40k income and proudly my son will say to his friends My father was a orphan and he made up this world for me...But people all around the world will say Abrahmovich was a orphan and look what he is now...Doesn't it make a huge difference??
Well i have seen people saying that study hard go to top college..the IITS..the NITs..you will get a job of your dreams...Now there will be thousands of other standing in good but not great colleges .... saying should had studied in 12th..would had made a Difference...i was the same....But now i feel that hard work is essential for success...education is essential for success...dedication and determination is a necessary for success....But Ambition and Vision are a necessity for greatness...So its you who decides "Do you want to be successful or be Great"
Thousands of IITs and NIT graduates are there...having hefty salaries...but for some of them their vision ends there...Some have a vision to be great...some like Phil knight.a professional athlete...won a lot of medals...he would had been forever in the history books....Now he is the CEO of the best brand in the World Nike...I just to emphasise...that life isn't over by missing out on 1 opportunity....its about creating a Bigger one....with shear ambition...that's what i have realized...and thats what i want to say to others like me failed on the first turn....
Vision is also mostly important...Today we say that there is everything in this world and nothing left to invent...Everything is done....But do you think that people in the past we rent satisfies with their living???...Few people dared to think different..hence the light was invented...hence telephone was invented..Computers came in...Its just having the vision to lo beyond the future....Look to do what was thought to impossible...
Lets take 2 successful men in this Era... Bill Gates and Steve Jobs...Both great in their own respect...But when compared with each other who would you pick...Some say Bill Gates is worth 43 billion and Steve a mere 5 billion...so Bill wins....i think that ...Steve is better....cause he invented the modern day computer...Bill just made the software which runs on it....Steve had the vision to be the Best....and Bill gates worked under him..and built his empire after seeing Steve...And today...The Apple brand is bigger than the Microsoft....because till today....Apple stands out for its Different thoughts and products...18 years down the line...Microsoft are sticking out on WIndows....And in the same time Apple have the Mac..Better than windows....and Ipod and Iphone....thats what i called innovative thinking and dreaming beyond barriers....
Just a last thought...i have realized that....from any moment for our life we can turn things around if we work with a vision in mind and drive it with great ambition....i have my vision....its just to put in the hard work...hehe...the difficult part...

Vision is important, but to be jobless is another problem, to be successful means to be like fish in water and to swim, if it´s necessary, against the stream. Everyone of us has own way for thinking and acting, which way we choose...and go...Sometimes we can´t do everything alone, friends are there to help...real friends...wish you to be successful, keep writing...!!!
