Is the growing level of competition good for the youth?

By June 28, 2022No Comments
Competition measures a person’s commitment, tenacity, and intelligence. Competition pushes a person to their boundaries and draws forth their greatest qualities. Competition exists everywhere and is a universal truth. The competition is not limited to books; it has been in all of creation since the beginning of time. According to Charles Darwin, only those who can compete may be considered fit and able to survive.

Dinosaurs, the strongest animals on Earth, perished because they were unable to keep up with the environment’s changing conditions. In gardens, it occasionally happens to see weeds growing where flowers were planted. This occurs as a result of weeds and flowers competing against one another with the stronger one prevailing. Flowers flourish wildly when fertilisers are added to the mix. This teaches us that competition is something that exists everywhere and that, when competing, external assistance—in the form of a coach, teachers, or parents—is occasionally needed.

Indian youth are defined as being between the ages of 15 and 29. A young person is vivacious, enthusiastic, imaginative, and visionary. Every nation’s future lies with its youth. Youths are in the stage of life when they are learning new things, gaining experiences, putting forward new ideas, and bringing a new generation’s perspective. The important question now is: Should competition among youths be permitted, or is the rising degree of competition healthy for a youth? Hard to answer. Before drawing any judgments, it is important to consider both sides of the issue.

Youth may create marvels if their energy is directed in the right directions, but the converse is also true! Every department starts recruiting young people, and everyone wants to have young people on their team, whether they are terrorists, global corporations, political parties, or government agencies. Why? Youths may be moulded into any shape since they are similar to wet clay. They can be turned into angels or devils. When a result, as competition rises, some succeed while others fail.

Many people try and try, but they are unsuccessful in getting the intended outcomes. Youths often experience despair as a result of repeated failures. Do we wish to live in depression in the future? If the answer is no, it can be assumed that young people would be harmed by more competition. The wheel of development and progress, like the wheel of dharma, can only turn when new thoughts and creations are created. How can a person’s mental capacity increase if he or she never faces competition and manages to get everything done?

People put in a lot of effort because they are aware that life is not always rosy and that competing is like walking on fire. Every year, there is more competition, and the competitors get better. Due to competition, young people are now top-notch creators. So, the rising level of competitiveness is advantageous for young people.

Competition thus has both benefits and drawbacks. However, the most important factor is which side wins out, pros or drawbacks. only because competitiveness causes sadness in certain kids, Is it appropriate to use the brakes when competing? No, everything that is beneficial also has some drawbacks. Water, for instance, occasionally provides life while also removing it. Although they shorten travel times, aeroplanes are not immune from tragic mishaps. The greatest human discovery, fire also brings about destruction.

Competition is therefore necessary but also has some modest negative effects. It is the responsibility of parents and educators to maintain youth morale at all times. The youth should be consistently inspired by their parents and teachers. The youths should be made into humans rather than machines. They ought to be educated that being successful in a certain field or exam is not the ultimate objective; rather, one must first strive to be a good person. When young people believe they have lost the war and are worthless, depression and grief set in.

As previously stated, youths are malleable, like wet clay, and may be moulded into any shape. Therefore, if we teach youths strength, the ability to handle any circumstance, confidence, and boldness from the start, they will never feel discouraged and after every loss, they will once more enter the arena of competition.

Young people therefore need increasing competition just as much as the environment does to adopt cleaner vehicles. In order for children to improve and for the nation as a whole to advance, competition must rise. Youths should, nevertheless, develop the strength to handle all situations during this process. When this occurs, we will see a better and more intense form of healthy rivalry where both the victor and the loser triumph.
