My goal in life
 
A man who has no goal is like a ship without a rudder, so says Thomas Carlyle, a Scottish author. I agree. Everyone needs to have a goal in life. Having a goal gives us a purpose and focus in life. To set that goal, I asked myself what I want to do for myself, my family, and my country. Finally, I have arrived at the answer. I want to make the world a better place by giving off my time, my talent and my wealth.


There are many things in the world that need fixing. There are people dying of hunger. There are people without homes. Our rivers are being poisoned. Global warming has made world climates go haywire. Some countries are on the brink of war. This is only the beginning of the list. Is there anything an ordinary person like me can do? Yes. I can contribute my time by joining organizations that champion worthy causes. Whatever I become in the future, I will make sure I spend a portion of my time to volunteer for a cause.

To make the world a better place does not mean I have to be a king or a president. I can still achieve my goal by using my talent to highlight things that need changing. I have a flair for photography. I will use my skill to capture pictures that will send a powerful message to the world to do something, to help, to change, or to correct. A picture paints a thousand words. My photographs will promote awareness of issues and problems that need people's attention. By creating this awareness, some of the problems may be solved.

I will work hard to gain wealth but not for wealth's sake. I am confident that I will do well because of my determination and perseverance. The reality is that funding is important in any effort to solve the problems facing the world. Not only will I work at raising funds for worthy causes but I will contribute a portion of my wealth to support efforts to make life better for others less fortunate than I.

Having this goal in life makes one thing clear to me. I will not live not only for myself but for others. I must do my best in everything I do from now on starting with my studies. If I am going to make the world
a better place, I have to work hard. I am a ship with a rudder and hard work is going to get me to my destination.
