Abraham Maslow has made a distinction between needs and wants. A need is a basic human requirement. On the other hand, a want is a conscious desire for something. As for me, my wants are influenced by the aspirations of my heart! First, I want to attend college, Second, I want to build a Support Ministry, for hurting people, and I personally want to enjoy the splendor of life.
At this point in my life these are the three wants that are most important to me.
Certainly, attending college is something that I have always wanted to accomplish in life. Over the years I have become infatuated with a desire to achieve knowledge. Now as I re-enter the environment of education I look forward to every opportunity of learning, and I am excited about the virtually limitless possibilities that will be opened to me. While in college I want to do all that I can to improve myself, so that I will be able to help others. Besides, education is utterly useless if there’s no one to share it with.
Therefore, I want to use my education to help other people. One of the most painful pictures in this human life is to see the effect of a life devastated by physical or emotional pain. Therefore, I want to work as intensely as I can to build a Support Ministry for hurting people everywhere. I want to provide a place of comfort and support, but most of all I want to lend a listening ear.
As I strive to reach these goals, it is important for me to continue my own personal journey to enjoy life to its fullest. I want to be committed to a life lived and guided by Christ. On the whole, it is my heartfelt desire to achieve my full potential in life, and to become all that God would have me to be.
I am convinced that God has allowed me to live and put in me a want to be educated and a desire to build a support ministry to help others. I especially believe God wants me to enjoy the brilliance of life. Despite any other wants that I might acquire these are the three wants that are essential to me.
Perhaps in time, I will develop other wants in life, but for now these are the three wants that are the most important to me.
