The affectionate behaviour of a special friend will surprise you.
The harder you work the luckier you get. It's ironic, but by working hard you begin to make new opportunities for yourself and put yourself in a better position. It may seem like luck to other people, but you know the truth; you worked hard to get yourself into a position where you are better connected, more knowledgeable, and ready to take on new opportunities.
Don't look for opportunities in the wrong places. Go where the action is and where people are discussing the topics and ideas that match your goals.
