Between passing, dribbling or shooting - shooting will bring the highest level of success in and around the penalty area.
You should discourage yourself from making inter-passing movements in the attacking third when a shooting possibility arises.
It is an obvious fact that there will be more occasions when we will miss the goal when shooting rather than score. It is estimated that only one out of every five shots will be converted.
It is a lesser sin to shoot wide than high. A shot going wide may have some chance of a deflection, a shot going high merely gives the opposition a goal kick.
A low shot has far more potential than a shot struck high at goal. In going for a high shot you are offering the goalkeeper a greater chance of stopping the ball. Moreover, shots along the ground may be deflected by another player, or it may stick, bump or skip depending upon the playing surface.
