Making a choice to make a difference
In life, there is something what we call “main purpose” in the terms of our goal, our main ambitions, within this great ambition or purpose(goal) there are also “sub-goals” in which are needed to built and support the main purpose. If you do too much on one of the subs, your main ambitions in the 1st place will be disturbed.
Not all humans have the same amount of ambitions in their lives. Sometimes a person who sells noodles is happy with just selling noodles on the streets. Another person then would develop his business in such a way that he can open a noodle restaurant and create more branches of his restaurant, expanding from place to place.
Sometimes its good to be just satisfied of where you stand, and when the time is right, you can move on to a higher place. Ambitions can kill your self or can take you to rule the world. A free choice, that is the best thing about life, freedom.
People may not like the choices you take, but then again, its your choice not theirs and its your life not theirs. Each choices has its own consequences which of course need to be considered before making them. If you think you can live up to your choices, then why not?
And if your choice is somehow unacceptable by the public, well hey, “it’s a difference” that is one of the thing of being humans, making differences.
