I think that winning is important, but it may not be the most important thing in life. Winning can boost one’s confidence and morale, giving us the motivation to carry on with life. This is because we get a sense of achievement that shows that we possess the potential to excel in a particular field. It can also make us feel rewarded for our hard work, giving us the mindset that when we put in the effort and persevere, we can surmount the myriad challenges that life offers. However, our failures can also teach us valuable lessons to allow us to improve and perform better in the future. By reflecting on what went wrong, we can turn our failures into lessons that can benefit us in the future. We may sometimes think that when we lose, we just wasted our time preparing for a competition. However, the time invested is actually not wasted. In fact, it has actually benefitted us as we have nevertheless still gained new skills or knowledge while preparing and, in the process, developed our characer as we learn the importance of hard work, perseverance and grit. After all, as Arthur Ashe once said, ‘Success is a journey, not a destination.’ All in all, what is important is to have a growth mindset — that is, to think of our failures as a learning experience from which we will emerge as better and stronger. This way, we can set ourselves up for greater success in the future.
