many people nowadays persue their good life by sacrificing time in their career. the income is the main source for their life to be successful. but when they cannot obtain a balancing point between career and family, problems arise. if it affects your relationship with your family, which one do you choose? are you going to sacrifice your career opportunity or family relationship?

Many people lose their relationships because of money. Either if you have money or not, definitely problem will come. Money is the root cause of all problem. In my life i have many experiences. My relationships were gone away when i don't have any money. When i have that they are fighting with me.

yes, sometimes this two important choices clash in our life solving the problem all depends on the situation. If the career offers a good opportunity for professional growth and a stable source of income, I would rather choose it. This is because I know my family will understand in the end. Family is family, no matter what mistakes you make in your life, your family will always accept you back in case you decide to join them again.

in our childhood how much we are innocent most important thing for us is relations . we give importance to our parents , friends , teachers and other relatives. but as we grow up we forget mostly moralities . our all focus is on money . we become money manufacturing machines . wealth is a such powerful thing which alternates the attitude of a person who is too much noble among society . i will agree with you that we should accept the value of family who has no alternate.

it would depend on my family's financial situation. if the money that is coming in is enough for the needs and a few extras every now and then, then i would sacrifice my career. however, if the job would bring the much needed income that i could spend for my children's needs, then i will opt for work. although this would mean less time with them, i'll sacrifice in order to give them proper foodand clothing and to send them to school.

You can do both without giving up the other.Balance! that's the key.Those successful professionals knows how to treat and keep their customers/clients.Well, they can actually do the same to their love ones.

It totally depends on the circumstances. What have the family in question done to support you? Do they give to you or do they take from you? I never understand how people cave in to the whole "it's family, so I guess I have to help them" rule. Family are just people with the same blood and DNA, it doesn't mean they enslave you. They are people too and if they are negative or stopping you from achieving what you need to do for yourself then get rid of them. My family has always been nothing but supportive so I haven't had any issues. I moved away from home and they offer to send me things and I politely decline. This situation totally depends on if your family is helpful and giving or if they are constantly holding you back and taking from you. Hope this helps.

I don`t think that a life can be called succesful if you leave family, friends and love to pursue a career. You cannot take your money to the other life, but if you are a loving person, you cand live and die surrounded by your loved ones and stay alive in their memory for a long time.

I think family is more important than money and one should find balance between the family and money. I think most probably it should not be between one of one, but it must be balancing of both.
