Is Life Really About The Survival of The Fittest?

Allow me to interchange between fittest and strongest as this is the easiest way I can explain what I'm about to share with you.

In evolutionary terms, it is a common theory that the fittest survives!
However, if this is true about everything then our world will be empty today simply because:

The strong will wipe out the weak

The stronger will wipe out the strong

The strongest will wipe out the stronger and 

In the strongest league, the cycle will continue till nothing is left.

In the bible, the wisest man that ever lived said 
"I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all" -Eccleiastes 9 V 11-

In my journey through life, I have come to realise that the survival of the fittest does work with other species to an extent but in human case, it is about the ability to adapt to situations spontaneously. In the toughest situation, the fittest won't survive but those that can adapt will.

As humans we have to spend our time wisely and take chances. We must also be open to respond to situations when time and chance happens. If you have anyone you look up to, observe their life closely. You will see that they are not where they are today because no one can do it better but because they took chances and was able to adapt spontaneously.

I hope I have been able to put my point across in a way that's easy to understand. Leave comments and questions below and share :).
