If we discuss this problem in a high level, it may have no meaning. But if we think about this issue from the view of a single person, I believe I can get some claps.
What we are struggling for are nothing more than money and power (MP for short). Everybody is doing this, but very few achieved. I think it is a problem between strategy and tactics. Our strategy may be MP, but our tactics must not be them. A Chinese old saying goes like this: If you want to write a great poem, your efforts should be outside the poem. It may not have good results if you fight for you final aim directly, and even though you have a good result, the lasting time of it is short.
Family and friends are all necessary for a better life. Family is a riverbank, and friends are harbors. We live on the bank, and we also like to travel to different harbors. Only this kind of life is meaningful.
Combining MP and family and friends together, the base for pursuing MP, I think, is the management of the inter-person relationships. It’s a little conventional. What I mean here is not only the relationship between you and the people you know, but also yourself.
Good companions have good influence while bad ones have bad influence. And others say that one person’s amount of wealth is mainly decided by the average wealth of this person’s several best friends. Management of the inter-person relationships is not only about how many people you know, how many of them are authorized officers of government. The key of it is about who are your friends, who have the same dreams with you, who can guide you, who can be your models. So, your level can determine the people you can get along with. If you want to get along with higher level people and make friends with them, the only way you can go is to improve you level first, just like building a ladder and climb up, then you can talk with them.
What we are struggling for, actually, is to well manage ourselves.
