Publisher's Summary

What seems like just a common, no-harm-done excuse - "It's not my fault!" - is often a dangerous trap, say Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend, because people don't recognize what the blaming mindset does to them. It not only keeps them from overcoming the effects of all that they can't control-like other people, circumstances and genetics-but separates them from a solution. And when they give away the ownership of their life, they end up losing the one opportunity they have to fulfill their dreams and enjoy God's best.

Using eight principles, a variety of true stories and their years of experience as professional psychologists, Cloud and Townsend enlighten readers on how to make empowering choices-and how to build the life they want to live. It may seem impossible but it's true: taking personal responsibility is not only liberating, it is the best-and perhaps the only-way for a person to get what they really want out of life.

    "TOP BOOK of 2009"

    This is MY FAVOURITE BOOK for 2009. Each year I choose my favourite out of the 20-30 I read/listen to.
    This book was revolutionary for me in two directions. 1) inward - helping me to 'Man Up' and own my situation, whether it be my fault or not. 2) outward - It makes it very clear to see why people are having their issues, and how to help them see that they need to OWN their situation too. Helping people OUT of Victim Mentality INTO Victory mentality.
    It's NOT my fault, but it IS my problem.
    It's MY job to deal with it.

    "Henry is a champ."

    5 or 6's book, that I read by this author, and still great content. This one have a lot about free yourself from guilt, except pain, that neccesary for change, and go and destroy, the thing that you want. Deffence ( no guilt, no false expectation, reject everything that not realted to goal) + offence ( attack your goal) is ridiculously good strategy to chieve whatever you want.
