Expressions used in Everyday Spoken English in Social and Professional contexts
An aspiration is something you aim to achieve, like a goal or target. You might 'aspire' to run your own business, or to be a pilot or a famous musician. Whatever you desire to achieve with your life, this can be considered an aspiration. You might be asked, "So...what are your aspirations?", in an interview, because an employee would like to know where you imagine yourself in a few years' time. This shows that you have thought about your future and you are on track to make your dreams come true.
