Upon observing people, I noticed that all of us have some sort of competitiveness within. Maybe one of the first things you do when you go out of your house is compare your outfit to another person’s. Or maybe your friend gets a little jealous over your perfect score on a Science quiz. No matter what that is, all of us are competing with one another.
The world is a battlefield, you know. We just have a distinct way of dealing with competitions.
Some give up easily. Others would fight hard until the end. And there are those who are only aggressive when they want to. They choose when to fight and when to give in.
But I know of others who don’t look at competitions as such, they couldn’t care less. And though the world would be a boring place if everyone is like that, I think they help in creating balance among us. Just think about your classmates refusing a tiebreaker so everyone gets the award. Or your superior trying to explain that all of you should be on the same ground for the group to work. That is just too mundane. Absurd even.
So, what I’m trying to say is that competitions come and go in this battlefield. And I don’t think it’s about winning. It’s about what you pick up and discover through the game and how you handle the situation once the results are in.
