Participating in tournaments:
Makes you understand Winning and Losing;
Setting things right for Understanding Self better
Makes one ready to adopt to failure in life or take it in a stride.
One starts doing SWOT analysis at an early age; introspecting what he / she lacks or what he / she is good at.
Probably Understands humility also better.
Self development is taken seriously by individual himself.
He / She unknowingly starts doing Goal Setting for themselves.
Would understand Camaraderie better; be it a Team or Individual Sport,
There are many more advantages / benefits and hence should we not put the kids / youth through Competitive Sports; rather than putting them to just play some game without any outcomes or giving him or her a false notion of having played something their youth!!!
Do I need to check if our kids / youth i s going through a Grind of Competitive Sport.
Your views please.
