Ummm... Back stabbers do not have a good attitude or a good reputation, and they tend to be hated by everyone.
By any measure my uncle is a successful man. His assets are; intelligence, diligence, good business sence, makes wise decisions, has courage and long term vision, and he avoids making enemies. He made a LOT of money, but his main rewards are he has self respect and satisfaction, a great family, a beautiful and kind hearted wife who cherishes him, and the admiration of many.
There are many other ways to conduct yourself and even make some money..., be a drug dealer for example, you can make a few bucks, be feared by many if you want that sort of thing, but it will likely get you killed by those you considered partners.
Reap what you sew. Nothing mysterious about it.
