Sports Game !!! This German word means an activity involving physical effort and skill where an individual or team competes against another for victory or entertainment. For sports freaky, sports means any activity that is performed only for pleasure and without sentient purpose. While few people see sports as a natural phenomenon: partially a stipulation and partially a twist of fate; but for me, it simply means Enjoying Leisure Time Along With Learning Lessons Of Life.
Sports gives you a chance to really see and understand who you are and what you are capable of. Sports teaches us lots of lessons about life which helps us to achieve our goals in this competitive era and live a better life every day. Sports make us understand the importance of discipline, opportunities, perseverance and teamwork.
Teaches you Discipline
The main element that differentiate a sport from a game is rules. Sports ask you to follow set of rules and this type of discipline is essential for fair play. Only with rules we can be free to use our skills in right direction. Rules to games are like Laws to layman. Learning discipline helps you throughout your life, whether it’s studying every day for a test or doing your work ahead of time at your job. In most games, the rules are more significant than the components and this rule teaches us to be disciplined. Thus sports teaches us “true freedom is a born of primary discipline”. Everything that is in the rules is part of the game. Everything that is not in the rules does not belong in the game. The rules are the borders and the heart of the game.
Makes us learn how to grab Opportunities
Ask any sportsperson about their favorite part of game. They will always answer “opportunities to play!” Games teach you to grab the opportunities that come to your way with enthusiasm. A broken bat or battered fields never deters a true sportsman from playing. Every game has a goal. Opportunities are always blooming around us. The need is just to identify them, grab them at right time and make best out of it.
Fosters Friendliness and Broad-mindedness among the participants
Sportsmen forget caste differences and religious differences and become friendly with one another. They look upon the world as one family. Thus sports and games have a lot of educative value.
Skill and talent may be inborn but no one is born as a perfect player. Practice leads us to excel. It’s better to make a single perfect move hundred times than to make a hundred imperfect moves. Practice in sports does not just teach us to build strength but also to eliminate mistakes.
Makes us learn how to work as a Team
Teamwork teaches you to learn to work with teammates, both good and bad ones. It allows you to think that success of the team is more important than your own individual success. Most sports consist of group efforts. One man can be a crucial ingredient in a team but one man alone cannot make a team. Working together using your strength for team and using the team’s strength to cover your weakness are the true rocks of togetherness. United we stand, Divided we fall. The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime.
Teaches how to deal with Failure
Losing is almost as important as winning, because everyone will fail at something in life. The important thing is to learn about the failure and use it as your advantage. Losing a game teaches us that these are tempolosses that can be overcome next time. The same goes for setbacks in life.
Everyday is a a new opportunity. You can build on yesterday’s success or put its failure behind and start again. That’s the way life is, with a new game every day, ans that’s the way sports is!
