Many people say that winning is a good thing and there is nothing wrong with that. Winning gives you pride of achievement and a feeling that you have done well and that your work is not in vain. I however believe that winning is not the only important thing in a game and that having fun while playing is as important. Enjoying the game is half the spirit of playing it, in my opinion.
Playing against opponents is not only tough, it is also very boring unless you know how to play your opponent. I personally dislike playing against opponents, unless I already know their moves or I can outsmart them easily. That is why I always try to learn as much as I can about each opponent, so that I can play against better players and have a fair fight. Of course, there are times when playing against someone is unavoidable, but remember to always respect each other’s style and even outplay them sometimes.
Playing in big tournaments is also a lot of fun. I have won several world championships and it is really amazing to think that I was once a small fish in this ocean. It is a true test of your ability and it gives you a sense of achievement and power. Playing in big games gives you a chance to win the prize money too. The thrill of winning the big one is something that I cannot explain and that is why I take part in these tournaments. I am just thinking that it must be so exciting to win the championship and being compared to the legends.
Another thing that I like about playing is trying out new strategies and techniques. There are many players who spend most of their time planning what to do in each game. While that is indeed necessary, you should know that you should not neglect your basics. Always play with the fundamentals and keep improving.
My favorite way of playing is of course playing defense. You will never beat the other team if you cannot protect your winnings. There are some players who spend their whole career on defense but then once they retire they start playing offense. I do not believe in this and I believe you should stick to playing defense even when you are playing offense. If you are going to have a chance of winning then you should take advantage of it.
I have discussed the importance of having the desire to win above almost everything else. If you are really determined to win every game that you play, then you will see results in your life. You will enjoy playing defense even when you are playing offense and you will enjoy playing offense because you will win every game.[single_loop]
