The man in the painting on the front cover is my father. A quintessential people person who wasn't interested in just being one of the crowd; the color scheme of his first house is a rich example! This meant in his late twenties, getting off the road well traveled and finding the unique opportunities on the path that he wanted to take.
Anyone starting to build a career, a family, or both, needs a process and a plan, just like what my parents wanted, discovered, and used to set their own course. Sadly, though, most don't have a plan; they never learned it was necessary, or even how to properly go about it. This book shows you how while escorting you alongside the authors' family experiences using a simple deliberate approach he learned growing up with his parents and siblings.
Here is what you'll discover and learn:
APPRECIATE how your family has influenced you, and contributed to what you are now getting out of life. From this understanding, you can better design the successful family characteristics you want your own family to have.
DISCOVER how you can help your children have extraordinarily rich sibling relationships as part of a true family team!
UNDERSTAND how your powerful mind interacts with your personality traits and external influences, and is used to set and control the path you want for you and your family.
REALIZE that change is the only thing we can be sure of, and that parents can truly turn uncertainty and uprooting into an advantage in their children's lives.
