Make the point on being underestimated,
if You wish to face less resistance than is needed to stop You.
Don't give up - if You care.
If You don't care - let it go, accept loss.
Don't fight if there are other, more important goals to fight for,
unless You have resources for that as well.
Prioritize Your goal(s),
Assess threats to Your priorities & make plans to neutralize these.
Not every victory is worth fighting for,
When it's worth, however - add it to your costs & a budget plan.
Conflicts cost, avoid them.
Desperates hurt, avoid forcing others to desperation.
Inspire others by Your example.
