题目：Do you think that one needs to take risks to finally reach success, or to keep cautious and careful and take less risks? (2018.10.14)
Success remains a mystery to many people, and people are always keen to find the key to success. Some people think that if you want to succeed, you must first do things carefully and try to avoid taking risks. However, other adventurers point out that greater risk can bring greater success. I agree with the adventurers, because before finally obtaining success, risk always follows.
First of all, the spirit of adventure means passion and creativity, and passion and creativity are both essential for success. 【中心句】Passion can bring success, because only continuous passion can make people work hard and devote themselves, allowing them to try various fields and finally find the areas where they are good at. 【状语表结果】People without passion have no chance of success. On the other hand, creativity gives passion a direction to vent. 【提出另一个角度】If you have only passion but do not know how to utilize it, then success is always in doubt. And creativity can open the channel for venting passion. Therefore, it is adventure that can bring success, because these traits that only adventurers possess are necessary for success.【强调句】
Secondly, only by taking risks in new fields can we achieve greater success. 【中心句】【倒装句强调】Throughout today's lists of richest people, it is not difficult to find that if you want to start from scratch and get huge wealth and success, discovering a new market is the right thing to do. 【动名词作主语】If we always repeat our predecessors' paths, it will be difficult to gain an absolute advantage in the competition, and we will only be caught in a bitter battle with other practitioners. Being distinguished in the market can not only make you quickly take priority but also mean greater risk. 【not only...but also...构成的平行结构】If Tesla did not manufacture electric vehicles, or Microsoft did not develop a Windows operating system, then the names Elon Marx and Bill Gates would never have all of their huge influence now.【虚拟语气】
Overall, all the characteristics of adventurers and the risks they take in new markets make the spirit of adventure a prerequisite for success. If you want to succeed, don't be afraid of risk!
