Competition is a rude yet effective motivation

 
MBA aspirants may be asked to write essay before GD & PI. Today, you will read Essay on:  
 
"Competition is a rude yet effective motivation"
 
Toba Beta, author of Master of Stupidity, once said, “Competition is a rude yet effective motivation”. Competition brings out the best in products and services, and the worst in people.
 
Everyone wants to be the best and stand out in a competition. So, competitors, be it firms or individuals, try to outperform other entities to gain recognition. Competition is rude because it brings out negative qualities in people.
 
Friends become enemies, colleagues become competitors, and families get torn apart for materialistic gains of success. In addition, some people who are thirsty for success resort to illegal means of gaining fame. This is the negative side of competition, which is seen by many as being offensive and rude.
 
One of the famous sibling rivalries we have witnessed in the last decade in the Indian business environment is that of Mukesh and Anil Ambani. After the demise of their father, both the siblings fought in the business space to gain a lion’s share of their family business.
 
Business competition led to weakening of family ties and created turmoil in many sectors of the economy the two siblings operated in. 
 
Although competition brings out negative qualities in an individual, it also enhances growth and creativity. Without competition, organizations will not be keen on improving their products. People will become lazy and take things for granted.
 
Competition motivates people to work harder and reap the sweet fruits of success. In the education sector in India, competition is fierce, which is why students burn the midnight oil, go for coaching classes, and work hard to excel.

So, competition is a double-edged sword, with both positive and negative aspects. It is up to the individual to balance these two forces, to ensure that competition remains healthy.

Competition makes an individual more creative and hardworking. We should embrace healthy competition instead of creating tension amongst competitors and friends.
