Part 3 – Follow Up Questions
1. What kinds of people are competitive?
I think in their hearts, all people like to compete and see where they stand among others. But, some people are confident and want to compete more often. Some people are not so sure, but are pushed into competitions by their parents or teachers. The fear of losing takes away the competition spirit from many. Many people realise their potential only after competing.
2. What kind of activities/competitions people like to take part in?
People like to compete in singing, dancing, painting, sports, quizzes and many more types of competitions.
3. There are many competition programs on TV nowadays. Why?
I think people nowadays love watching reality television instead of fiction and dramas. The competition programs are more real compared to the dramas which have become boring and are predictable. In reality shows there is an element of surprise and real human emotions which make them more popular.
4. Do you think competition is important at work places?
I think healthy competition is important at all the places including offices. The feeling of competition helps in bringing the best out of the people and promotes growth. Without competition things become boring and monotonous.

I think losing and winning are both important parts of our life. Someone has rightly said that we do not learn much by winning but losing teaches us the most important lessons in life. So people who lose in the competition should take it positively and learn from the experience they gain. Based on these learnings they should try to improve themselves.
