Hey Readers, welcome to Your Essay Club. Today we will present a short essay on “My Aim in Life to Become a Doctor”. Let’s dive in!
What do you want to be when you grow up?
That is a question I came to hate as I grew up and started school. All my parent’s friends, any time we would or they would visit, would ask me that question. As a young child, I would make something up and say stupid things like I want to be a professional football player.
Or I would say that I wanted to be a circus performer. I got a kick out of their reactions when they heard those answers. The responses may not have been serious but eventually, it got my parents’ friends to quit asking me what I wanted to be when I grew up.
Then I hit my teen years and I started to see the serious nature behind that question and that realization got me thinking. What was I going to do with my life? I do not care for sports that much so being a professional athlete was out and I hate the circus so that career was off my list.
As I thought I explored my strengths and saw that I genuinely cared about people and I could stand the sight of blood. Then it hit me, I could be a doctor. My grades have always been good and people told me that I was very smart and both qualities were needed to become a doctor.
So I set my sights on being a doctor for the rest of my life. As I study I keep that one goal in mind. It is hard work but one day I will be able to enter medical school and learn how to be a doctor.
What I like about being a medical professional is not the money that is involved. The big money does not come to many doctors until they have become quite specialized and famous. There are lots of doctors that make very little money and seem quite content.
What really appeals to me is the positive contribution doctors make in society. They have the knowledge and talent to make a real difference in someone’s life. Plus, they can go to just about any country and practice their craft.
There always seems to be a need for doctors no matter where you go. That is a very attractive feeling to have. Being needed makes a person feel really good about themselves. Especially since there are so many specialties one can choose to work in.
Don’t get me wrong, I have not looked at this profession with rose-colored glasses on. I know that there is a negative side that takes its toll on doctors. Patients do not always get well, their family members get angry and treatments do not always go as planned and doctors get sued.
Those negatives aspects just motivate me to be the best doctor I can be and learn everything I can so I can avoid such situations if possible. My aim to be a doctor is quite legitimate and strong.
That is because I also see that profession as very rewarding. Not financially, although that does help some, but in the aspect that I can make a difference no matter where I practice medicine. If I focus and concentrate on helping my patients and they get better, then I have done my job.
The look on my patients’ faces when I give them the good news is more than enough inspiration and reward. Words cannot express such a feeling when you have helped someone and they are genuinely grateful.
All of these elements make my aim to be a doctor a legitimate goal and helps keep me honest. An honest doctor is the best one to have to look after you as you never get lied to and people can have confidence in him.
That is another reason for my aim to be a doctor. I like the idea that people can have confidence in me.
