Taking risks

Throughout the history, there have been always different opinion about how to approach to your life, while some would like to take risks, others thought that knowing what they know is enough for their life. I personally thinks that learning new things are always good and can be efficient. Among a plethora of reasons, three prominent ones are leading to more opportunity, more creativity and obligation to . The three mentioned above will be discussed in detail.

First and foremost, the more you know, the more ability you have and that lead to more options for your life and that lead to more opportunity in your personal life or career and that would lead you to make a right decision, which is a success in my point of view. Nowadays, a lot of people are doing what they do not like just because they did not have enough knowledge to make the right decision or did not have enough courage to leave their job and go for what they really like. Therefore, it might be good to learn new things and have the courage to leave what you do not like to be what you want to be.

Another reason is that, in my point of view, taking risk and a little ambition will lead to creativity. If human mind wanted to be happy with what it have, he would never invented things like airplane or computers. It was the urge to learn about new things that make different between humans and other species in the world. For instance, If Alan Turing -inventor of computer- wanted to solve the encryption in enigma -a machine that German’s used to send messages during world war- with his mind in the paper, it would take about 10 years to solve that encryption and he would never made computers.

Last but not least, it is our obligation to learn new things. In world around us information are duplicating in less than one day and if one wanted to be successful, he or she should update him or her knowledge. For example, if companies like Apple or Microsoft do not learn about new technologies that are in the market and do not use them in their products, they will lose to other companies and become forgotten.

In summary, how important taking risk is for one’s career or how it can affect entire human race and the fact that If you do not learn about new things, you will be forgotten are the reasons I think it is very Important for successful people to try and learn new things. I suggest that we start to learn 1 new skill season in order to be more successful in our life.
