Some folks seem to think that competition is a “dirty” word and everyone should be given a trophy just for showing up. Whether you win or lose a game or a contract, competition always makes you stronger.
For people who have grown up in “generation snowflake” who can’t cope if someone has a different point of view and think everyone should cater to their individual needs, it is going to be a huge wake-up call once they realize that they are competing in a global market. People who have grown up in India and China know what it means to have discipline, work ethic and to compete for university placement and jobs at the best companies.
