Yeah, it's true, winning is not everything.

Think if a person wants to win every time even without doing hard work and when they lose suddenly then they will find mistakes in others, not in themselves.

Winning and losing is like a double-edged sword. If winning encourages us to continue same work in future then Losing equally teach us to do hard work, to realise our mistakes. Every time it does not matter to win but its matter to learn every time. When we lose we try to search for new ideas and we do lots of hard work for the great victory. After a lot of hard work and after searching new and great ideas to win, when a person succeeds with a great victory then he/she realise the importance of losing a game and realise how that lose turn them into a strong man.

So winning does not mean to think we are stronger then anyone but its like to realise that we are capable to do anything and there is nothing impossible to do any task unless we put our hard work. Winning is just to encourage people but a person who chooses his field with passion and interest, for them winning and losing does not matter. The only thing is matter is to do their best in that field and to learn from mistakes.

No, well winning a match and keeping the score are two different things. Whenever you are playing, you play with an expectation of winning. Everyone plays for it. But the question is what if you don't win?

In every match, each player gives their best to make their team win. The competition is not only between the two team, it is between the players as an individual. As individual players need to improve their skills too by making more score than their previous one. The winning of a team doesn't depend on a single player but an individual winning definitely depends on their daily performance. And if there any lack of their performance they can learn from it and do better in their next match.

Hi, guys,

We will discuss it by an example of cricket. If viral is scoring well definitely he is doing it for winning but unfortunately sometimes he loses the match.

Losing the match doesn't mean that Virat's effort went in waste. It simply means that he put his best no matter matter they win or loss.

So Winning isn't everything it is effort which ensure your next victory.

Hello friends,

According to this topic, winning is not everything, your participation and sincere efforts is what of utmost importance. If you think that by completing certain work in life, will notakr way for your goal. So, if you choose to not to work on that and wait for your type of work then it's wrong. If you choose to work on it, then you will gain experience of how to tackle problems, your weakness in certain areas. So it will improve knowledge that will help you to gain success in the work that is need to be achieved.

So, we always need to score or participate, although the winning or achieving it is not important to us.

I think this sentence can be determined in two ways first one is if we win any game are task our parents feel so proud of us all though they also have some expectation from us. Not only on the game but in any felid or task. On the other hand, if we lose the game we can analyse ourself that how much we have to work hard on that particular game are a task.

Everybody proclaims that winning isn't everything, well that has a modicum of truth but the question is why do we keep the score?

The answer to this question is pretty simple, people work to satiate their hunger for success and scores are just the motivation to get ahead. Everybody needs some motivation or incentive which the scoreboard is providing in this case. Scores define your performance, it reflects those areas where you lag so that you can work upon it and also highlights the areas where you excel. Participation and sincere efforts that you put in is for a purpose and winning is that purpose, it is that goal which has to be achieved.

Goals in life give you a certain direction. People move in the direction of their goals and defeat every hurdle with zeal but if there's no goal there's no direction. When we say winning isn't everything, we imply the fact that our life does not depend on the outcome of a game. The cardinal point is the learning process which is facilitated by the scoreboard. Winning and losing are just the superficial parts of a game, the main aim is to improve, participate, perform and do better every time.

Hello, Guys, I think the first and foremost important thing about a game is participation.

Considering the Winning factor, it is the potential of an individual as to how as a team they are playing together against another team. WINNING defines the criteria or the difference between the two teams on that particular day & location. It is rather more important to rely on the fact that one should play its own game and compete with its own the next time.

The Score to be precise is the measurement/quality which a player inputs into the game, and at the end, the well-deserved player is awarded based on this score.

Well, friends the topic in discussion here is forcing us to focus deeply on the root level of games and sportsmanship. Winning is not everything, it means that there is no value of a win if someone does not possess sportsmanship. It's a fact that every team on the field plays for victory only and to compare the performances of the team, the score is necessary. That's why it is said winning is not important, the way you play the game is important. As match score can only calculate one's performance but not sportsmanship, they are restricted to field only whereas sportsmanship is a part of personality.

According to me, score is not just a number. It shows the performance level of a team or an individual. If you we go in deep we find, it's true that matches are only for amusement and fun but a team/individual wins that only because of their practice and support of associations. That also shows how their countries support sports. Lastly, score helps in keeping the spirit and motivation of game alive.

Yes, winning is not everything but it means a lot. I would like to say;

By keeping score, performance between the participating teams can be compared and analysed. It tells about the strength and weakness of a team.

By keeping score, there will always be an enthusiasm among the players to do better the every next time.

It also makes the game interesting, the players, as well as spectators, enjoy the games.

The Score system is one of the best criteria to award any deserving candidate/player.

Yes, we all admit that winning isn't everything but according to me scores are mandatory because whether it is cricket, hockey, badminton or something else, 1 thing is similar in all of them, they all are a "game" a play of performance, and performance can only be measured in terms of scores.

Moreover, if scores were not there it would be very difficult to know where to stop. As apart from time score is the biggest factor that fixes the end point of a game.

Hello everyone.

Acc. to my point of view, there is two meaning of this statement, first, participation in the game and second proof for what you are participating for, if we take part in the game, it shows that there is a quality of accepting the challenge and there is a challenge in the game if we set a target (score). Yes, it is truth that winning isn't everything but if we didn't get anything after participation, it will totally useless and if there isn't any target then we keep moving and moving in the space. So if we win or loose the game doesn't matter but what you get from this, is the point.

A game is played between two nations not merely for fun but far beyond it. It depicts the whole population of the nation. Of course, winning isn't everything, recently England has lost to India but a fantastic innings was played by hammed who was injured to just delay the inevitable loss for England which was appreciated by many. That shows the spirit of players. The scores are counted because obviously, everyone can't represent a nation unless he is best the nation can send to represent. It also pushes the players to perform consistently. One more reason could be that viewers get bored if there is no competition.

Hello, Everyone.

"Sports without Competition is like a Meal without Spices".

1) Keeping scores raises the competitive spirit between the participants so they are pushed to perform better.

2) Any sport is nothing without the viewers, Maintaining scores make the game interesting for the participants as well as the viewers.

3) Scoring acts as a catalyst in improving the standard of sports.

Although scoring and competition are essential ingredients for any sports but I will conclude that "Winning in a game is not everything" but "Wanting to win" is the most important thing in any sport.

Hello everyone,

Yeah, we often say winning is not everything and we really mean it too. But we are participating in a competition, the goal is to give your best, to be on the top. How can we compare ourselves with our competitors without maintaining score? This is the one thing that keeps us pushing forward to work harder, to play more dedicated if we score lower than our opponents. The aim is to give your best shot and to get better and better every time. The moment you stop counting scores you are gonna lose your interest to play. So after everything winning doesn't matter.

Games and sports are loved for their competition entertainment zeal and teamwork.

I think that winning is important but only up to the point where you are satisfied with your win but not angry or too upset with your loss. As for keeping score, it's a way of determining how you need to improve and how you're already doing. Before even trying to win you need to know you strengths and weaknesses. Also, if you work hard, you are obviously more happy with your win. Even, so dwelling too much on a bad score prevents you from moving forward and trying harder.

A score is necessary because,

* It used as a measure of the performance index.

* It helps the player to compare their performance and encourages them to perform better.

* Awarding prizes and medals to the highest scorer motivates him and encourages other players.

* Prizes can be awarded only if scoring system is there.

* In the absence of scoring system no player will take the pain to perform better.

Yes, winning is not everything. But it is a step towards achieving your goal. Keeping no score is equivalent to being stuck in one place. If you want to move forward you need to know where you stand and where you want to stand. I am not saying losing is a step backward, in fact, thats what helps you understand your position and help you overcome your flaws. Winning is the reward you get for doing so. So, while the score is important, do not let it get to your head.

I think winning is important for every individual. Any person who is not having the confidence that they are going to win makes them feel confident that they are going to achieve anything and everything in their life if they win.

Similarly if a person looses also they may learn a lesson from it and should not repeat the mistake again. But winning doesn't matters, one should learn some important concept and boost their knowledge.

According to me, winning in a any task is not that they are succeeded in his or her life, scores are used for fixing target for a particular game or a task. So, it is needed sometimes to take decision that which team is performing better and to motivate them to achieve anything big.

Nowadays, only based on scores only, the school students are entering into a good college. Good marks are used for particular period and not for entire life. So, avoid seeing the scores and see each and everyone's talent. In sports, they use the scores to fix a goal, if the runs are not there, then they will not show interest and their hidden talents.

That's why they are keeping scores or runs for all fields to become our world as competitive one. So, each and every one should not keep score as target, they should improve their own skills in various fields, that shows winning is everything and it's reality.

Every time I said her that if we do our best then we must win due this I become more confidant and we try our best and we got it. If sometime you not able to win then also ok. Because life has every time a second chance. You can improve your mistake which done in before competition and try next time at that you defiantly win.

Parents always think of their child being the best in the world. They think only of winning. But, they don’t realize that wining is not important but participating and learning things is. Success is not always about winning but being happy with the achievements and abilities. Parents should always take care about how they respond to their child’s attempts in any field and this will define the word success for him and eventually determine the spirit with which he will lead the rest of his life. Therefore it is important to appreciate his efforts and encourage him to participate.

Each child is different. One child may excel in class, the other may be good in some other field. So parents should never expect the child to succeed in every task. This will create undue pressure on him.

If you just emphasize on winning, the child may develop a fear of failure and may refuse to participate or he may become over ambitious and may not be able to take failures in his life. Participating helps the child to find out his own positives and negatives. It helps the child to expand his boundaries and explore more.

Parents should never show their emotions if they are dishearten on their losing. They should always show that they are glad at his attempt. Parent’s reaction can either make or break a child’s confidence. Make your child concentrate on his own work rather than how others are preparing or what others are doing.

It is wrong to comment on the judgement or about the result. Unfair or biased result should never be discussed with them. This will induce negative emotions of envy, jealousy, anger towards the people performing better than him. Encouragement by the parents is important at each step. It is important that parents encourage their children to participate, without the fear of outcome. This will help your child to discover his hidden qualities, make him confident and infuse in him the enthusiasm to explore and try new things.
