If you are aggressive, you will be a winner

Post MBA exam results, Group Discussion will be crucial for MBA admission so it is advised to read and practice with variety of topics. In following GD you will be getting some points with divergent views which you can pick up and develop.  Today, you will read GD topic: 

"If you are aggressive, you will be a winner"
 
Studies have shown that winners are more aggressive than losers. Be it in a sports competition, in the workplace or at school, people who want to succeed in life will go the extra mile to ensure that they are not defeated. Winners practice hard and are always in a fighting mood. Since winning is their goal, they put their best foot forward to gain success in their lives.
 
Many people associate aggression with negative actions. When one is aggressive, it does not mean that he is going to harm someone. Aggression is a state of mind where one appears calm on the outside but inside, he has a burning desire to attempt a difficult task and succeed in it.
 
David Ortiz, a famous American baseball player, once said, “I try to be as quiet as I can at the plate, but still aggressive”. Before India became independent, Mahatma Gandhi fought aggressively for the country. Although he appeared calm on the outside, he was a brave fighter. He did not give up his mission. Without weapons, he fought courageously until India was declared independent. If Mahatma Gandhi had given up in the midst of his mission, he would never have been considered a hero and a winner.
 
On the other hand, winners need to possess other qualities apart from aggression. The determination to win should be present in a winner. However, apart from determination, hard work and humility are also required. Many winners tend to be aggressive and arrogant. When one is on a winning streak, he gains confidence. When he becomes over confident, he becomes arrogant and this is the cause of downfall of many bright individuals. 
 
Certain roles in the society require one to be aggressive. For example, a salesman has to be aggressive in order to make a living. If he is not confident about the product that he is selling, then how can he expect potential consumers to purchase it? The world has become a competitive place for people from all walks of life, including students, employees and sportsmen. To stay ahead in the competition, it is important to stay confident and not get carried away by negative thoughts.
 
Aggression is not linked to violence. When someone is aggressive, he is determined to make it big in life. Determination, coupled with hard work, will help one reach the peak of success. It is true that one should be aggressive in order to be a winner. However, it is important to note that there are many people who may be better that you. So, to remain a winner, it is important to practice humility.
