Why Do People Envy Their Neighbors and Competitors?
Competitions are an important part of human existence. Competition is a competition where two or more Parties try to obtain a public goal that cannot be shared: for example, where the common gain of one is the other’s loss. This is the essence of a contest. Competition can also arise between people, institutions, groups, etc., where each group or individual tries to gain a public advantage. Sometimes, even humans compete for things like status, money, love, friendship, and many more.
In today’s world, competitions also exist in business and in other arenas. A good example is sports. People are naturally competitive about the game they are playing. If you are in the business field, you would naturally be competitive about getting clients and customers. There is also a lot of competitiveness in education and work. Competition is also considered natural in relationships, as we constantly argue, compromise, and cooperate with each other.
For some reason, human beings seem to enjoy competition. Indeed, competition is one of the instincts that humans have. It helps them survive, make social bonds, organize, and even seek common ground and solutions to complex problems. The important thing is that in a competitive situation, everyone should strive to attain the highest level of competence, and there should be minimal classifications between those who achieve competence and those who fail.
