Ambition is the desire to achieve something in life. My ambition is to become an aeronautical engineer. Productivity comes from commitment to and clarity of your work. I would rather do something I love and not be stressed at my workplace.

I like to take up aeronautical engineering because I had initially wanted to be an astronaut. Then I got interested in aeronautics and decided to be an engineer. When I asked my dad, he also encouraged me.

If you want to achieve something in life, then you must keep trying. Take Sachin Tendulkar, for example. We know that he is a great batsman. It took him years of commitment and hard work to become what he is today. How many of us think about that?

If you try hard, then you will achieve your ambition. The secret of success is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.
