You miss 100% of the shots you don't take

IIMs and few B schools have replaced GD with WAT. Written Ability Test has 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:  
 
 "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take"
 
Sitting on the fence and commenting on the game is quite an easy task. But being in the game, playing hard against all odds, is what takes real efforts. Similar is the case with the game of life – unless one throws oneself into the game with all the vigour and energy one possesses, one will become a mere spectator who watches and wonders what is happening on the field.
 
One should never ever be afraid of taking risks in life. We live just once – and if we waste this precious life of ours always sitting on the fence, and not entering the game, and giving it our best shot, then we have a lot to lose.
 
On the other hand, if we enter into the game of life, with a positive spirit, strong will power and a determined mindset, we can make a huge difference in our personality and our life as well. As we begin to take calculated risks, our belief in ourselves increases by leaps and bounds and instills a spirit of achievement and conviction within us, which is very important to achieve success in life.
 
When one refuses to take risks or refuses to brace life with all its challenges, one becomes a mediocre human being who is content and satisfied with the way things are going on, even if they are not in his favour. He will never be able to take his destiny in his own hands and mould it according to his own desires, hopes and aspirations.
 
He will always be dictated by the others around him which would perhaps make life unbearable and hard. He will merely drift through the ocean of life like a leaf on the waves rather than confronting its turbulent tides with passion, energy and a never-say-die attitude.
 
Refusing to take risks is a huge obstacle in our way of gaining a full, holistic, first-hand experience of life. We will always be bogged down by irrational fear, illusory circumstances and flimsy situations which might never see the light of day.
 
But because all these will have overwhelmed us completely, we would not have the courage to shape our lives in the way we want them to shape. Rather, we shall accept whatever chances life and our circumstances throw at our face, without having the conviction or the courage to fight against them or resist them.
