In today's competitive world, everyone is eager to win the race. No one is ready to accept the second place in life.Life is turning into a race in which the people fail to realize the things they are leaving behind of dire importance.

Con

A lot of the time, the experience comes WITHIN the winning or losing. For example, winning gives players a mental high as well as boosts confidence levels. This experience of winning might encourage the player positively, causing them to work hard to achieve this feeling again, or negatively, in which the player might slack off, which creates the overall experience. Losing a game might create a bad memory or experience, causing their next performance to be either better or worse based on the past experience.

Participation is more important than just winning. If you will keep on participating in different events then surely one day you will get the result of your hard work. It is not necessary that every time the winner alone gets appreciation and fame for his work. There are many examples of real life champions who have never come first in their life but they are perfect in their lives. It does not matter that you win or lose, all that matters is the courage to participate. It is very essential to fight in life rather than just conquering it. You should be ready to face all kinds of challenges and hurdles which come in your way.

Participation provides a platform to test your ideas and concepts. You get a chance to show that how creative and innovative you are. It is rightly said by Jim Ron -"Ideas can be life changing. Sometimes all you need to open the door is just one more good idea." Competitions should provide an enriching experience that allows you to apply your knowledge to a problem.

I don't think the argument is about whether or not to have a winner and a loser, it's about what people should focus on during competition. Having the sole goal of winning is dangerous because there are other factors out of your control that could prevent you from reaching your goal. No one wins every time, and even if you do, you miss out on the learning that comes from failure. Instead, it seems more beneficial to do as much as you can to win, because you can control what you do, and to have a more concrete goal, you can set out to accomplish a certain task, such as scoring a certain amount of points, that is indirectly related to you winning.

I've always been pro-experience, the winning and losing comes as a consequence of the experience and as long as you do what you can to make the experience what you want it to be, you will benefit from the situation. Focusing solely on the end result I feel is dangerous in that people can become obsessed with winning and get really angry when they lose, and I don't mean in a motivational kind of way. Also, those type of people that never want to lose might turn into those that never want to fail, and there can be a lot to learn from failure. I usually try not to look at things as win or lose, but as accomplishing something for myself, for example in basketball scoring a certain amount of points. I think having a goal that's not directly related to winning retains the competitiveness while easing the effects of failure. I think in a world where there was no way people would get angry about losing, it would make sense to always want to win because then we would all strive to become better, which seems beneficial.
