The Zohar of the Parsha of the Week Beha'alotcha below reveals the secret weapon whereby nice guys who normally finish last - can win.
What do nice guys do in the face of a conflict? They simply give up the fight, relinquish fees, concede, surrender...
From this Zohar the Mekubalim learn someone who wants overcome an aggressive opponent - needs to spell in his mind his name backward (as the Zohar says למפרע).
For example, if your name is SIMON - then spell it NOMIS and that will empower him with GEVURAH and the strength to win. In general anytime you read any scripture forward and backward (especially the Psalms) you gain strength.
Also reading the Shema - forward and backward is very powerful in the face of an aggressive opponent.
שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ יְהוָה אֶחָֽד
As well as meditating on the 72 names.
