@DickFuld can attest to this truly inspirational quote:
I want to reach in, rip out their heart and eat it before they die.
Japanese businessmen schooled Larry Ellison on competition by saying that the Japanese view competition as:
Other people trying to steal the rice from the bowls of their grandchildren.
In the movie The Founder, Ray Kroc was quoted saying:
If any of my competitors were drowning, I'd stick a hose in their mouth and turn on the water. It is ridiculous to call this an industry. This is not. This is rat eat rat, dog eat dog. I'll kill 'em, and I'm going to kill 'em before they kill me. You're talking about the American way - of survival of the fittest.
Powerful stuff. However, before you get too excited, how many of you actually walk the walk?
I'm aggressive. Headhunters tell me this and every single interviewer and most of these cats make a living busting their balls getting commission.
Lunch always tastes better when I eat someone else's. Cannot count how many times I've roasted people with professionalism and tact in the military regardless of their age, rank, or experience. It is to me pure fun and entertainment. The funny thing is, the most of the people I've killed end up being good friends and laugh about how we used that as a meaningful way to mutually bond and grow professionally.
Just how aggressive are you when you need to be and how have you outwitted your competition?
