3 Words That Builds Great Relationships

'How Are You?'When was the last time you've asked somebody these words?  And how do you response when somebody open ups to you? Few days ago, I went home and spared some time to hang around with my family, watching TV in our living room and I've asked some of them the question, 'how are you?’  The night became a lot of fun because were able to discover things from each other and talk about the activities we do in our day to day life. To tell you honestly, in the past, I rarely spend time watching TV or even have time to hang out with my family in our living room.  I was too focused to succeed in life that my day was always filled with the demands of my profession.
