Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?Successfulpeople try new things and take risks rather than only doing what they know how to do well. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

Most people in the world think staying the same and not taking risks is the best option in business or life in general. Personally, I think taking risks and trying innovation will lead to success and better things in life. I feel this way for 2 specific reasons which I will explore in the following paragraphs. First, taking risks will benefit you to get new and different experiences. Although it may lead to failure and the results may annoy you, it supports you to have new experiences you never had before. The word risk has a close meaning to danger and exploration which means it's not always going to satisfy you. However, when risking something may help you to find new interests and ideas. Second, after you took the risk, if it does not satisfy you, you can observe your mistakes and improve them for the next time. My personal experience is a compelling example of this. About a few weeks ago. I had a basketball tournament and in one of the matches, the game only has around five seconds left and my team was 2 points down. I took a very risky shot and I horribly missed. After that match, I went home and practiced the same shot I took in the match over and over again. Addiontly, I know what I should perform next time in order to achieve my goals because I learned from my mistake which was the risky shot I took. Consequently, I agree with the statement stating that you have to take risks in growth in order to accomplish many things and be successful. To sum up, taking risks has helped me to learn from my mistakes and improve for the next time. Last but not least, you can experience new and different things in activity which you may appreciate and find sympathetic.
