Competition

Competition is the act of competing for the same profit or a prize between two or more individuals through the utilization of talents, abilities, and dedication. Competition can be a positive source of motivation to finally achieve hidden dreams, goals, and aspirations to be shared contributively to the world. However, competition can also be an agitated desire to obtain superiority. Thus, it can bring out the best of people, yet it can also bring out the worst in people. Competition should be perceived as an opportunity to gain internal and/or external growth and development. It shouldn’t always depend on incorporating personal factors into play, such as gender, age, and race. It shouldn’t always stimulate a sense of hatred between competitors. It shouldn’t always belittle the capabilities and efforts of others. Out of respect for the varying sectors in which different individuals feel spiritually fulfilled in pursuing, competition should not only reinvigorate the aptitude and stamina of competitors, but be a shining example of an element in society that possesses the ability to pass on some of the most precious gifts in human history.
