Only one thing matters in life, only one ambition, only one goal. Whatever that target might be, as odd as others may think it, it is yours, and your purpose for being. It should be sought with all your strength and guile until the universe shatters and your body becomes dust.
Many wonder what life means, asking themselves daily why they are put on this planet. While they sit dithering, their purpose passes by, unnoticed and unpursued, and upon their deathbed they curse at the futility of life, disgusted at how little they have accomplished.
Some believe it is not about money, and should only revolve around love and family, but they are wrong. Not wrong for themselves, merely wrong to judge the path of others. From that rich person’s ambition, they have employed people who otherwise might not have been able to afford to pursue their own ambition. They have paid larger taxes so as to help finance the societies we all gather within, employing soldiers to keep our lives safe. Those soldiers have pursued a life of protection and service to a greater idea, one which may not be agreeable to some, but it is theirs, and not to be judged. Without them there would be no freedom with which to cast judgment.
I have met gardeners who could spout philosophy about the universe by simply examining the petals of a rose, carrying their listeners into their world and enriching their lives with every word. I have met bad men, criminals and cruel, but who have, by one single action, changed the lives of others for the better beyond anything a king could offer. These are people who have found their purpose in life, be it forever or just a day, and they should be content.
Every person is a cog in a grand machine beyond imagination. To judge one part is like looking at a single inch of the Mona Lisa and saying it is disgusting, without knowing how wondrous the entire picture is. No matter how menial a position may seem, if that person is satisfied, then they are complete, whereas the most successful person may be empty inside at the lack of family and friends in their life. Judge nobody by what they do, judge them for what they are.
