    Know your limits. Don't let people cross them or take advantage of you. Be nice because you want to, do favors because you're kind not to try to win someone's favor. Know who you are and feel good that its of value. Both wimps and pricks have the same problem of thinking they aren't quite good enough ... they just go about trying to get validation in different ways. One begs for a scrap of attention to feel good by association. The other puts other people down in a false sense of superiority and power. Confident people just do their own thing and figure good things will happen for them.

    Incredibly hard, if you have this proverbial "secret sauce" then you are really lucky. Few I know have it.

    There is no magic answer.
