"The power of connections" does remind me of something Eben Pagan taught in a seminar once: That if you want to "get your life handled" you should start with 1) your health, because you can instantly change your diet and start exercising and see immediate results, then 2) building friendships and relationships (connections), because once you are getting yourself physically fit and physically healthy and attractive, it will be easier to find other healthy-minded individuals to connect to, then finally focus on 3) building your wealth, which could take years, but if you have already mastered your personal health and also built connections with other people, it will be immensely easier.
So, your building connections, and more subtly but just as important, choosing your environment, is one of the prime factors in getting the three main parts of life handled: health, relationships and wealth.
