Is competition really good and important to us as people in life?
In life, there are people who strive to gain something by establishing superiority over others, this is known as competition. The issue of competition is important because it benefits a lot of people who act upon it. This issue is debatable because it has two sides of view, while some believe that competition is good and important, others believe that it is bad and not necessary.
In my opinion, competition is good and important. I strongly believe this because this issue has played a major role in the success of many individuals as they dislike being inferior to others.
It is important to realize that competition is good and important because it helps people to manage their success and failure. If everything was always going the way we prefer, no lesson would be learned and on top of that, life would be boring. Competition forces people to deal with both sides, and this is why we have activities such as sports that are a great contribution of learning experience for kids growing up. Sports actually helps them to deal with winning and losing and how they react to it, which is a great and important skill to poses as you manage your life in adulthood.
Many experts have supported the importance of competition including Henry Clay who emphasizes that competition makes one creative by saying that “Without competition, we’d probably still be in the stone age. Look around you, everything you see is a by-product of some kind of competition. Look at how far humanity has come. Whether it’s about business or your personal life, creativity brings about the best in all of us. Without competition, we would end up settling for far less than what we are truly capable of.”
A further example that indicates that competition is good and important is perseverance. Competition can make one persevere. In life people usually look at others that are ahead of them and do whatever it takes to catch up to them. No one give up until they are at the top. Thus, without competition, no one will have any reason to persevere. People would not know their limits and how far they can stretched them. Perseverance is a priceless reward and one needs a reason to experience it, and that reason is competition CITATION Hen16 l 1033 (Henry Clay, 2016).
Some people believe that, competition is not good and important at all because they feel it can bring jealousy among individuals which can result in fights leading to deaths and brutal injuries. This is a false reason because they failed to realize that being jealous can also boost one’s confidence to work hard and reach or pass the pace of the superior people.
Another reason people believe that competition is less important and not good is that, they feel it can lead to exhaustion if people push their limits and try to do better than others, which can stress them mentally and are likely to give up easily. In this case, they are wrong because taking things easy is always a solution, instead of then going fast they can always go slow even if it’s not too slow (Yang, 2018).
I strongly believe that, the evidence in support of how good and important competition is, is stronger than the support on how bad and unimportant the issue is because it can result in good futures with a well-organized and developed nation due to the outcomes of the issue (competition) such as creativity and perseverance.
