Why Do People Receive Awards By Paying Money? ― Share if You Care







“We have potential. Who needs medals? I'd rather have potential than medals any day.” ― Neil Gaiman


I have come across several posts on social media where people pay money to receive their awards and post their images online to get like, comments and shares. I don’t understand the logic behind such acts. As a researcher, author and trainer, I have the practice of observing, analyzing and assessing the psychology and behavior of the people. Here are some of my views about it.

When you are truly worth there is no need for you to seek approval and validation from others. There is no need to pay money to organizations that organize award functions, events and ceremonies by taking money from the awardees. In fact, what I observe is that if the organizations get adequate sponsors, there is no need to collect money from the awardees. If there are no sponsors, it may be possible that there are no takers for such organizations and there is no meaning for such awards. Currently it has become a practice for a few organizations by forming team of advisors and panel of judges to build their brands and collect money from awardees to give away awards. It appears that there is no substance in such organizations and awards. In fact, people who don’t have any credibility pay money to receive awards from organizations that don’t have much credibility and visibility.

I receive several personal emails to receive awards with a request to pay money. I reject them because I never worked for recognition. I serve people by sharing my knowledge free on my blogs and social media platforms. I don’t give permission to incorporate advertisements in my blogs. My intention is to add value by sharing my knowledge free with the world.

Although there is an urge to crave for attention it is not a healthy practice to receive awards by paying money to the organizers. Remember, cream always comes to the top. There is no need to blow one’s trumpet. Although there is a marketing saying that more display more sales, there is a limit for everything. Remember, anything of excess is counterproductive.  

Indian Bollywood actor, Aamir Khan is an apt example for not craving for awards. He is known for excellence. He keeps adding value to his profession. He is known for breaking the Bollywood records with his dedication, discipline and determination.

In 2018, the government of India gave away Padma awards to the deserving people and unsung achievers breaking the traditional practice of giving away awards to known people who lobby through political connections. It has made giving away awards transparent through online nomination. It is a step in the right direction.


Work for a Cause, not for Applause

When people work for satisfaction they hardly care for awards. They care for their efforts, energies and the value they add to others. When you look at leaders including Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King Jr and Nelson Mandela, they all worked for their causes, not for applauses. They worked for their satisfaction, not for recognition. To conclude, don’t excessively focus on getting recognition for your efforts. When you are worthy, you will be recognized by others.
