There are two kinds of people in our society. The first0 kind is that they want to do only what they already do well. On the other hand, the second kind is that they want to try new things and take risks. Personally, I like to be the second kind since I want to get new knowledge and experience, and I like exciting and interesting, and I like challenging.
First, I will receive new knowledge and experience. Once I began to study at university, all of the freshmen had to take a sport course. At that time, I tried to take the soccer course because I played it very well. Unfortunately, The class was already full. Then I had to learn other sport courses. I decided to study track and field course even though I did not like it just since it was the only one available course. After my registration, I did not even think of it. But after I finished this course. I found that I gain much knowledge, which extremely benefited me. For example, I knew that jogging would be helpful for my health if I did it regularly, and I learnt that if I would like to exercise only some parts of my body such as my shoulder, my legs and so on, I could select to play what kinds of track and field.
Second, the new things are exciting and interesting. During my learning track and field at university, I never felt bored with it. I felt excited and interested in what my teacher taught me because it was a new thing for me. I’d like to learn more and more since I would learn each different kind of track and field. I can imagine that if I do something repetitively, I will be bored with it and will pay less attention in it finally.
Third, I like challenging, so new things will challenge me. On the first day of my class, I found that it was very hard for me to be the top student of my class.At my first test of running 10,000 meters, I was almost the last person who ran to the finished line. Afterward, I tried to practice myself day after day. Finally, I could be the best runner of my class. Due to my ambition, I could reach my final destination.
In short, because I like getting new knowledge and experience and because I like exciting, I will choose to do the new things. Furthermore, I love to challenge with the new ones. For all of these very important reasons, doing new things is my preference.
