Aspiration by itself means that one is not yet what one wants to become. So there is a goal and the person has to move towards it to reach there.
The most amusing thing about aspiration is that there are plenty of humans who acquire the trappings of their aspiration instead of achieving the substance of their aspirations.
It is like a DEFEATED RIBERT BRUCE SITTING IN A CAVE WITH HIS CROWN ON, at least he was a king once, so it could be called a sentimental backlog. But when a human believes that the trappings of his aspiration make up the substance of his aspiration there is something pitiable about that mindset.
If one is an underling, then one should not be ashamed to reconcile with that thought and make efforts to reach the goal.
