Surrendering to a more powerful opponent will help you assemble power down the line.

Have you ever gone up against someone knowing that you’d never win? While it’s common for individuals to fight for glory against all odds, it’s not the path to power. When confronted with an adversary more powerful than you, so what should you do?

Give up.

This might seem an odd strategy, particularly since humans and their foes automatically fight to guard themselves. But when a competition acts with aggression, he can expect you to react in the exact same way. In instances when you know the competition has you beat, surrender and your best move would be to do the reverse.

Why?

Should you give up, or convince your opponent that you so, you'll be able to ensure that he won’t deliver substantial damage. Not only this, but your opponent, believing he has won, may also let down his guard. When he does, you’ll possess a golden opportunity plan your next move and to recover your strength.

Consider the case of Bertolt Brecht, a writer of ground-breaking, communist ideas who immigrated to America to join other intellectuals exiled from Europe. Prior to the US Congress, which was investigating a supposed communist infiltration of Hollywood, his peers and Brecht were summoned after the Second World War.

While his fellow radicals caused a commotion and challenged the authority of Congress by being uncooperative and screaming, Brecht was serene and politely answered the questions he was asked.

And his uncooperative friends?

They were blacklisted, struggling to release for many years!

 Build long term strength as opposed to making major sacrifices for short lived bouts of glory.

If you need to be treated like a first-class, you’ve got to act like one.

Are you higher up the ladder than someone else? If so, it’s essential to act the part – unless, of course, you prefer to be seen as their equal. However a word of warning: acting while holding a position that is superior to them as if you’re equal to others will only inspire despite.

 He despised royal ceremonies, as well as each of the symbols connected with the throne. Actually, he didn’t even keep the company of royalty, largely befriending bankers instead.

But the king’s conduct didn’t do him any good – he was shortly despised by both the affluent and the poor. Wealthy people disapproved of the unlikely king, while the poor disliked look out for them.

All of this hate built until the people rose up against him and he was made to abdicate the throne.

Generally speaking, individuals are leery of higher-ups who act like their equals; doing thus leads to believing as they’ll suppose your modest manners you’re dishonest folks are a sly trick to cloud your prerogatives.

Afterward what’s a strategy that is better?

You should instead make use of the strategy of the crown to create people treat you like royalty. To put it simply, should you think you act this way and ’re above others, other folks will begin to believe you’re top-notch, also. They’ll suppose there is good reason for you to achieve that when folks see you behaving superiorly.

 Actually, it was his confident socializing with the Spanish royal family that eventually convinced the Spanish throne to finance his voyages.
