So that you can become a better person.
When you do knew things you have new experiences and learn new things which enriches you and makes you a more valuable person.
The literal diffrerence is – what you know and what you don’t know.
If you haven’t tried something you will not know about it, if you have tried something you will know about it.
Think back to when you were a young child – did you know how to count, how to read, how to speak well – you had to learn those things and think where you would be if you had not tried them, understood them and their value part of your life. You life is better because of your experience with this things that were new to you.
There will be things all of your life that will be new, and if you are wise, you will learn about them – just as you did reading, counting, treating people respectfully, and on and on.
Life is rich because we learn, and to do so we try new things. And we can enjoy doing it!
