If you don't try then there is NO experience

IIMs and few B schools have replaced GD with WAT and some of MBA institutes prefer WAT instead  GD hence, Written Ability Test has also become a tool to test MBA aspirant on assessing overall communication skills and personality, so it is also equally important and crucial component of MBA admission process. 
 
Develop points for discussion and read WAT topic:  
 
“If you don't try then there is NO experience”
 
Life is too short to live on and cherish someone else’s experiences. One needs to accumulate a wealth of experiences in order to feel truly alive. One needs to make mistakes, learn from them and move on in life. But, one should not be foolhardy – life is too short for one to make all mistakes by oneself and then learn from them. Others’ experiences should be looked at for a better understanding of the pitfalls in life, so that one is cautioned in advance.
 
It has rightly been said that experience is the best teacher. Einstein believed that the only source of knowledge is experience. Julius Caesar, the renowned emperor believed that experience is the teacher of all things. The experience which we gather from others’ lives or through reading, are no doubt valuable and enriching, but the experiences that we gain first-hand endow upon us true wisdom. 
It is often said that experience comes through age. In our childhood, we are often advised to learn from the experiences of our elders and pay heed to their advice. This is not because they are always right but because they have more experiences, which have taught them what is wrong, and which have taught them how to differentiate between what is right and wrong.
 
Life is not a bed of roses. Thorns lurk beneath. One can never expect life to throw only good, wonderful experiences at one. There will certainly be unpleasant experiences that one will confront. Being bogged down by such setbacks is not the solution – one needs to land on one’s back when one falls down, because if one can look up, then one can stand up. It is all a matter of perspective. Experience is not merely what happens to one, it is what one does with what happens to one – what one learns or how one grows.
 
Jaren Davis once remarked – when we serve we experience, when we experience we teach, when we teach we learn, when we learn our lives are changed forever and then we are enriched beyond our wildest dreams. Nothing ever becomes real till it is experienced. One needs to shun all sorts of procrastination and take one’s destiny in one’s hands, because time and tide wait for none.
 
Maturity does not come with age – as is commonly, but incorrectly, believed. That is why some people are mature at fifteen while others are still not at fifty-five. Experiencing life in all possible ways, good or bad, bitter or sweet, brings about true maturity. One must never be afraid of experiences. One must never hang on to one’s unpleasant past experiences – one must learn from the past, as it is dead and gone.
 
The future has not yet arrived. One must prepare to fully embrace it with an open heart and soul but not worry too much about it. Worrying does not lead anywhere. When one stops worrying about what might never happen, then one can fully experience the present moment and the joy that life holds for one.
