Something We Want

A riddle:

(Try to guess the answer before the end!)

If you want me: command me – for it isn’t by right,

That you get what you want – or by being polite;

Some say ‘fore you give me, you first must receive,

But you’ll lose me forever if you’re caught to deceive;

While some try to force it, and others ignore,

If you leave me to chance, there’s no promise in store;

I’m not as elusive as some like to say,

As you carry yourself, it’s all in the way;

You can have me in droves if you never neglect,

That confidence is key in commanding respect.
