Success and the Family

    The evidence is convincing that the better our relationships are at 
home, the more effective we are in our careers. If we're having difficulty with a loved one, that difficulty will be translated into reduced performance on the job.
In studying the millionaires in America (U.S. News and World Report), a picture of the "typical" millionaire is an individual who has worked eight to ten hours a day for thirty years and is still married to his or her high school or college sweetheart. A New York executive search firm, in a study of 1365 corporate vice presidents, discovered that 87% were still married to their one and only spouse and that 92% were raised in two-parent families.
The evidence is overwhelming that the family is the strength and
foundation of society. Strengthen your family ties and you'll enhance your opportunity to succeed.
