After a long career of working with families of all types, sizes, and levels of wealth. I decided to sit down and catalog the issues that caused these families conflict, pain, frustration, failure, and destruction; perhaps most egregious is that these families fell well short of their great potential.
Periodically, I will post answers to how families can overcome each of these '10 Destructive Forces,' and position themselves to seize every opportunity to reach their full potential and live a more abundant life on all levels.
Let me start with merely listing each of the '10 Destructive Forces:'
I. Apathy & Complacency
II. Undeveloped Values and Belief System
III. Lack of Vision and Clarity
V. Lack of Governance
VI. Deficient Interpersonal Relationship Skills
VII. Money Centric Focus
VIII. Mishandling of Family Financial and Business Matters
IX. Unclear Boundaries
X. Failure to Prepare the Rising Generations
