The Effect of not Following Through on Family

by Michael Berry on August 27, 2014

A person’s family will tend to be influenced to be either more or less bold, live with purpose and eager to start and finish new things based on the example you set.

We have seen in my previous post how not following through on decisions leads to a frozen, or fear mentality. If a person is raised by fearful parents, they will tend to be fearful. However, they may also completely rebel and go to extremes to not be at the mercy of the fearfulness, possibly taking unnecessary risks. So your choice to not follow through on decisions can actually affect your family for generations in many different, seemingly invisible ways.

These connections are real and causative.

Take responsibility to handle your own life. Act boldly to accomplish new things. Keep excitement in your life. Grow and count the wins throughout your life. All of these actions and behaviors provide a valuable example of how to live a balanced, successful life to those around you. Especially those you love the most!

Stop And Think:

The most effective method of leadership is leading by example. How does this apply to the effects of not following through on family? On friends? On creating influence and support for your goals and dreams from others near you?

Conversely, the opposite brings about opposite results.

The choice, and the costs, is up to you.

Personal development is our business and our life.

Yes Michael, people go about life and just don’t realize what a bad attitude can put in motion. Its not just your family but every person you encounter in a day,year or decade. My children act very much like there mother and I

Yes Ross is also interesting that people choose to go around with their bad attitudes. I can’t imagine what they feel like it’s the end of the day. Thanks for your comments.

I strive to do good things at all times. Sometimes I emulate the bad things that others do but I quickly realise that it’s bad and drop it. Thanks for this advice.
