Building a Happy, Healthy Family at Home

Having a happy family is part of the Kaizen Challenge Success Principles.

What a joy it is to feel harmony in our home! Striving to build a happy, healthy family at home is a very important endeavor, and the rewards are great for those who make it a priority. Families provide each of us with a sense that we belong, and our families contribute to our individual identity.

 
A healthy family structure can provide the emotional support to nurture and instill a sense of security in all of us. Relationships that we share in the family also allow us to develop the morals and basic values that we carry throughout our lives. This is why it’s so very important that we each strive to have the goal of building a happy, healthy family at home.
  •   Building solid relationships within the family is absolutely essential for the success of each individual in the family – whether young or old.
     
4 Elements of a Strong Family Bond
 
All too often you hear stories of dysfunctional families who have multiple problems and just don’t know how to function or communicate with each other. Surely this is not a scenario you imagined when you started your family! Rather than risk that path in life, here are some tips for developing a strong family bond:
 
1.    Respect your family members. When it comes to family members, respect should be issued right from the beginning, even if it has yet to be earned. At the same time, it’s also important that you work to earn the respect of other members of the family.
  • Respect is simply the process of placing value in the other people who make up your family.
2.    Enjoy shared experiences together. The old saying, “A family who plays together stays together,” is very relevant in today’s world. Sharing experiences helps to build respect. It also enables you to learn more about the people that you share a home with so you can discover their likes, dislikes, and the things that make them thrive from day to day.
  • Families should work hard to ensure that they make time to spend with each other – both as a team and with each other on a one-to-one basis
3.    Trust your family. It’s been said that trust is a requirement for all fulfilling relationships, whether in your personal life, social life, or professional life. If you have respect for an individual and spend enough time with them to know their needs and desires, a mutual trust grows naturally.
  • Trust is necessary to have open and honest relationships in the family.
4.    Learn to give as well as take. Successful families know and understand the importance of the “two way street” that should exist within the family structure. When every family member understands this, you will all enjoy working and playing together.
  • Every family member should know and understand their role and work to give and take on an equal basis.
It’s Never Too Late To Start Building a Happy Family
 
If you currently have discord and contention in your family, you might think it’s too late to rectify the situation. However, by taking positive steps to make changes as a whole family, you can start to rebuild your trust and respect.
 
One parent alone can’t make these changes by themselves. Open communication is critical so the entire family can understand what the current problems are and how to fix them. You may meet some resistance, but focusing on peace and harmony in the home should motivate even the most stubborn child. Once your family members get a taste of the happiness and security that a loving family brings to them, they won't want to live any other way!

I have made a promise to myself after reading this. There is something wrong in my family that needs to be fixed, we are not a family that communicate or play together. Before we can start with the Propert investments we need to do the Kaizen Wealth together - all of us. I pray to God to give me the power to convince my wife and kids to join me in this course.

Dearest Sam!
I am glad you are joining Kaizen Challenge...it has changed my life once I've done it...also am struggling to do it again this year...in different format and more self-discipline required (assisted by Hannes'es principle: not finished one day...no next lesson!!!!) I am looking forward to hear from you....how it is going??? The family disfunction will most probably still be there as you can't change other people....but definitely you will change in a big way and you will deal with the situation from the different referrence point since now on!!!
All the best!!!And let us know how your life is changing since you are on Kaizen Challenge!!!
Regards
Beata

I have completed the Kaizen Challenge in early 2008, and must add to Trevor's post. Financial Wealth is just only one of the seven areas in the Kaizen Challenge. The other areas, such as family is included, thus it is not just about Financial Wealth, but the broad definition of Wealth, and better yet, continuous and never ending improvement in all areas of your life. So if you feel that your family needs work, then the best way I have found is to show people what can be achieved by doing it yourself first, by changing yourself first, and you will then see the people around yourself will change. Zig Ziglar also mentioned something similar once. All this also takes time, and it is a year now, and I already see small changes in people around me, my wife being my best supporter.
