"Any effective offense will attack a defense where its weak. They watch your movements, see your improvements, and listen to the words you speak. Therefore, be careful as to what you reveal as a good defenses's game plan is always concealed. Don't give people the ammo to shoot you down."
Life is a game no matter how you want to view it. There are players who make their living off the misfortunes and disadvantages of another. In fact, that is true for anyone in the game, whether their intentions are good or bad. With that understanding, everyone must craft and offense and a defense to survive. Those who do not understand that, fall victim to those who do. Therefore, nurture your talents, understand your limits, and harness your confidence with the understanding that someone else is watching you move looking for a way to defeat you.
