Well for starters you will feel really smart. Coding gives you a sense of satisfaction, a sense of total control, which you can't expect in any aspect of life mostly. I think inherently everyone wants to control things outside their mind and body.
If written code for solving the right problem it does give anyone a sense of direction, purpose, motivation. At this point, you can't get on with life without having to be a part of code some written to help you. Transport, communication, health, wealth any field for that matter, have some code written to make things easier.
So what are you waiting for? Go print your first hello world, join the coding world and become a coder. Beware it's addictive.
