What do you want out of life? Is it love or success? How about passion in your personal and professional lives. Perhaps self-satisfaction and health, security and achievement, freedom and trust, or fun and financial independence?
It is said that a successful life is measured by the successful relationships accumulated during that lifetime. If so, than you should learn to and work at developing your spider webs. These are your networks of friendships, associations, etc. Your best protection against catastrophe is to create a huge network of people who you have helped and who feel a kinship and loyalty to you.
If you seek happiness, fortune and fulfillment in life, if you want a lifetime of luck, you need to create relationships with people. To do this, you need to study and understand them. If you will only do this, the opportunities you'll be presented with are endless.

"Heart" Decisions vs. "Head" Decisions.
Heart decisions run deeper and last longer than "head" decisions. While many business relationships may be based money and products, those relationships can quickly disappear when a competitor upgrades their products or lowers their pricing. Learn to based all relationships, if possible and applicable, on higher motivations and emotional connections.
You must have or develop your own skills and knowledge and no matter what the future may bring for you or your business, so long as you gain relationship skills and knowledge, your income is more secure.
Keep in mind that people are people and not numbers. They have goals, dreams and desires. They have people they love and who love them. Build relationships for life-long success.
